Costco Wholesale (Canada) EDI Compliance

Costco Wholesale is an international chain of membership warehouses that carry quality, brand name merchandise at competitive prices. Individuals and small-business owners must become members to shop at Costco. Note this integration is for suppliers to Costco Warehouse in Canada only. Cin7’s Direct EDI integration gets you trading quickly and cost-effectively with Costco while reducing data entry administration and errors and streamlining and automating your supply chain.

How we integrate with Costco (Canada)

Before you begin trading with Costco Wholesale,  you must be ready to send and receive transaction documents electronically, conforming to the company’s x12 EDI standards. Cin7 is fully compliant to send and/or receive the following transaction documents:

  • 850 Purchase Order—Cin7 translates Costco Purchase Orders as individual Sales Orders in Cin7.
  • 856 Advance Shipping Notice—Cin7 translates ASNs into EDI format and lets Costco know when to expect delivery of an order.
  • 810 Invoice—Cin7 sends Costco Invoices for dispatched items

Why should inventory and EDI be connected?

Cin7 simplifies complex omnichannel, omni-fulfillment and multinational businesses with an all-in-one cloud inventory, POS, EDI and 3PL solution. The key benefits to integrating inventory with EDI in a single system include:

  • Greater stock visibility as orders automatically come into Cin7 and decrease available inventory.
  • Efficient order processing that removes stock right away, preventing overselling.
  • Fast order dispatch via Cin7’s warehouse and 3PL integrations.
  • Precise order processing. Cin7 creates your Purchase Orders directly from your retailer’s EDI orders.
