What is Target EDI?

Target Corporation is an American big box department retail chain with approximately 2000 stores across all 50 U.S. states and an eCommerce website where customers can order products online. In order to bring a variety of products onto the shelves and makes them accessible for everyone, Target offers an EDI (electronic data interchange) process for all its vendors, suppliers, and distributors. Target like other big box companies mandates their suppliers to trade via EDI with them to make it easy and consistent to process and keep track of the products being supplied from all over the world and of course pay in time to all of them. As a Target supplier, you need to understand what EDI is and how EDI works. Also, the type of communication you would need to exchange documents back and forth with Target.

How to become EDI compliant with Target?

You will become EDI compliant by using a third party EDI solution (on-premise, managed EDI or cloud EDI) or a start trading EDI documents with Target by following their supplier EDI guide. Depending on your internal technical infrastructure and resources and the size of your business, you can choose basic EDI software packages or advanced kits that allow you to become EDI compliant with Target. If you are a small business, do not forget to checkout EDI software for small business. Your EDI service provider should help you with end-to-end EDI implementation starting from obtaining trading partner contact to testing to going live. If you are a vendor, you have to be Target-approved. You will have to go through a series of EDI testing first before you start sending and receiving EDI documents back and forth. This is to ensure all the connections are working correctly.
