How to Get Your Products Into the Bass Pro Vendor Portal

Bass Pro Shops is an oversized retailer that sells much more than fishing gear; they create an experience for their customers that transcends mere retailing.

As with many retailers, Bass Pro Shops requires supplier EDI compliance. DataTrans’s multichannel WebEDI solution makes becoming compliant easy without incurring extra expenses or hassle by installing software.

Become a Bass Pro Vendor

As a product maker looking to get into Bass Pro Shops or any of the other large sporting goods retailers in the sporting and outdoors space, you must be prepared for more than just sales. Retailers such as Dick’s Sporting Goods, Bass Pro Shops and Academy Sports all have specific supplier requirements including electronic data interchange compliance – in this short training video we’ll show how you can become a Bass Pro Vendor by getting your consumer products into front of buyers at these outlets.

Becoming a vendor at Bass Pro Shops may seem daunting at first, but with the right tools in hand it can be done successfully. One way of setting yourself apart from competitors is being prepared to meet their EDI specifications; DataTrans can serve as your very own EDI department by helping get you up and running quickly while guaranteeing compliance with Bass Pro Shops specifications.

Step one in becoming a bass pro vendor is filling out their online application on their website, which includes filling out a basic questionnaire, three product samples, and signing a non-distribute and general trade agreement. After your application has been submitted and reviewed by them, they will notify you as to your status.

After receiving approval, the next step should be submitting your product information via their ecommerce website. They will review whether it fits within their stores and adheres to their online product guidelines; once approved, an email notification will be sent out notifying you.

Last, you will need to provide them with evidence of your product’s performance – this could take the form of lab test results or scratch and sniff tests or, for new products, samples. They will also need access to your current price list.
