Welcome, Best Buy Vendor Partners!

You now have a better way to manage and publish your item data in the GDSN®.

The GDSN® (Global Data Synchronization Network) controls how products are distributed, organized, and displayed, making it a requirement to do business with most retailers today.

By choosing Edgenet as a GDSN® provider, Best Buy is making GDSN® simpler and faster for you!

About this GDSN® data collection program

GDSN publications support the accuracy and integrity of item data we collect for your products, ultimately benefiting the customer experience.

As part of improving our GDS program, we are partnering with Edgenet as our new data pool provider.  Our decision to switch to Edgenet is driven by our focus to better serve our customers and strengthen our vendor relationships.

The migration to the Edgenet data pool will require a short GDS outage. Please carefully review the following schedule to plan accordingly:

  • February 14th, 2018 – outage start 7 PM (CST)
  • February 15th, 2018 – outage complete 12 PM (CST)

During the outage, please do not publish items via GDS until you are notified that the outage is complete. PIM portal is available for manual set up if there are time sensitive item setups.

This is awesome…all the work is putting the data in, and once you have that, being able to just pick and choose what you want makes it so easy. I think it's great!

Edgenet has streamlined the new item set up process and item maintenance immensely. As an example, I learned about an error on about 100 of our products. By using Edgenet, I was able to correct everything in a little over an hour as opposed to days.
