PO TYPES REQUIREMENTS

 

Attention EDI enabled suppliers: Please work with your EDI provider to ensure all mapping for PO types are followed (PO Types Document). Close out orders will now require a GE PO Type to be accepted. GE PO Type is required to be mapped for NordstromRack.com (Ecommerce) and Nordstrom Rack (Stores).

 

Any questions, please email Floor Ready.



PO VIOLATIONS - PRODUCT OVERAGES & SHIPPED OUTSIDE AGREED WINDOW WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY RTV'd

 

In accordance with existing Supplier Compliance requirements, Nordstrom will continue to strictly apply the RTV process for product that was not ordered, overages (SKU/Store level), mis-ships (shipped to the wrong location) or shipped outside of the shipment window on the PO.

 

POs must ship per the final details of your purchase order. Any changes made by Nordstrom to the order should be reflected on the PO as well as the shipment. This includes overage units and items that were not on the final order. Any additions to the order will need to be communicated to your buying partners and must be updated on the purchase order.

 

Additionally, in order to ensure the maximum product market availability, please commit to the ship window on the purchase order. Orders that arrive outside of the agreed-to window will be subject to an RTV. All extension requests should continue to be communicated to the merchants in order to avoid any unintended returns. Please validate that Nordstrom is notified of your most updated return shipping address to avoid additional cost and lost time.

 

 

ECOMMERCE BEAUTY ORDERS

 

Attention Beauty Suppliers:  All ecommerce orders must be sent in single SKU cartons.  Single SKU cartons is the requirement for all ecommerce orders.  See section 3 of the Packing Standards on the left sidebar.
