Dear Valued buy buy Baby Vendor,

As part of our new launch, buy buy Baby is introducing a mandatory EDI program with all vendors. The use of EDI enables us to better achieve our merchandising goals, while facilitating more efficient communication of information between us. EDI automation will result in lower costs, improved order accuracy, and better supply chain visibility for all.

We are looking forward to an improved procurement process through the automation of the following documents over EDI:

    • 850 – Purchase Order

    • 856 – Advance Ship Notice

    • 810  – Invoice

    • 997 – Functional Acknowledgement

To implement this initiative, buy buy Baby has partnered with NexComData, on the ECGrid® EDI network, a third-party EDI VAN solution provider and experienced leader in omni-channel integration. 

If you have an existing service provider or VAN that interconnects with ECGrid, you may use that provider for data exchange with buy buy Baby. 

If you do not currently utilize EDI, NexComData/ECGrid can recommend an economical solution provider for you.

The process to becoming EDI compliant with buy buy Baby involves a few simple steps. We ask that you to begin this process as soon as possible to start reaping the benefits of this automation. 

NOTE: This initiative involves buy buy Baby ONLY and does not involve Bed Bath & Beyond (now an Overstock company). Bed Bath & Beyond and buy buy Baby are no longer the same company.
