Provide shipping information visible to the buyer and vendor through Fairmarkit.
Fairmarkit now offers the ability to track the shipping of item(s) within a given RFQ. In order to do so, vendors must sign up for our free portal.
Haven't done so? Here's a link: Fairmarkit Vendor Portal
Once a buyer has awarded a bid to a vendor, the vendor will receive an email offering an opportunity to provide shipping details that both the buyer and vendor will be able to view on the digital request. Once the vendor has logged in on the vendor portal, they will see bids they have won under the AWARDED tab.
Once the vendor has been selected the awarded requisition, a purple banner will appear at the top of the page prompting the user to provide shipping information.
Click "Upload tracking information
A window will appear in which the tracking information for the RFQ item(s) can be input, breaking the fulfillment up into multiple shipments if necessary. After clicking save, both the buyer and vendor will be able to see the status of the order on the request itself.
The RFQ now has the status of the shipment, from creation to delivery, with the blue line indicating where the items are in the shipping process. There is also an expected delivery date provided.
