The instructions below guide you through the Supplier registration process and how to set up your Store in Unimarket. If you already have an account within Unimarket, please click here for instructions on how to connect a new customer to your exisiting account.
A "Store" in Unimarket is defined as your company's presence in the Unimarket Supplier Directory. Existing Customers will be able to view your Store's profile information, create Purchase Orders against the store, view your Store's catalogs and receive invoices from you via your Store.
There are a few different ways that the Supplier registration process can be initiated:
- If you are invited to participate in a Bid, you may first receive an email notification or the customer could post a public link/URL to the bid.
- A customer may invite you to join a customer's eMarketplace via an email link.
Whichever way you start the process, your first step will be entering your company's preliminary information, and setting up your Username and Password.
This information is very important, so please take note of what you enter, as you'll need this information to log in again in the future. Complete the initial registration details and click Sign Up.
|Note: When setting a password for your account, you will want the strength bar to be at least moderate.|
Company Profile Setup
The first time you Sign Up within Unimarket, you'll be taken to the Company Profile Setup page, where you can enter your company's most pertinent profile information.
Mandatory information is identified with a red asterisk and must be completed before being able to proceed.
The first option will be to select if you are registering as an Individual or Company/Organization. Once this selecting is made, the form will update based on your selection.
- Individual: you are a person registering yourself as a vendor, not representing an entity such as a business, government or institution.
- Company/Organization: you are registering your entity (business, government, institution etc.) as a vendor.
The following is the registration form for a Company/Organization.
|Note: For a Company/Organization invited to register by an NZ Customer, a Business Number is required which is usually your New Zealand Business Number (NZBN).|
You will also be prompted to enter information about your address. If your remittance address is the same as your physical address, you may tick the box for "Same as Physical Address". When you have completed this information, click 'OK'. Your remittance name should be the name you wish your payment to be made out to (In most cases this would be the company name).
Tax Profile (US Suppliers only)
If the customer you are connecting with requires the Tax Profile to be completed, you will be taken directly to the Tax Profile page.
Choose your appropriate tax profile form and complete all mandatory fields.
Mandatory information is identified with a red asterisk and must be completed before completing your tax profile.
If you do not have the information and need someone else in your organization to complete it, you can set them up as a User under the Profile drop-down menu.
|Note: For future reference, the Tax Profile page is located under the Profile drop-down menu.|
Upload Certificates & Documents
If you have Certificates of Insurance or documents requested by a customer, you may upload these on the Certificates and Documents page.
To do this select Certificates and Documents from the Profile section of your left hamburger menu, select the correct tab (Business Classification (US only), Insurance or Documents) and choose to Add relevant documents.
