Quality Check

When deploying the supplier integration to production, Apicbase conducts a quality check with the supplier. During this call, we typically assess the following aspects of the assortment file:

Required fields:

  • Name
  • Article number
  • unit_name populated with weight based (g, kg, etc.) and volume based (ml, l, etc.) unit of measures. If none of these can be provided there can be a fallback to piece but this should be the exception. So most items should have a weight or volume based unit of measure.
  • Additionally, packages that have a nested structure (e.g., 6 x 33 cl or 10 x 100g) should be sent in this format. The multiplier ('6' and '10' in this example), along with the unit_name, are crucial data points when sending assortment data to Apicbase.
  • Price (+ price_type_code)

Are the following fields populated:

  • Brand
  • Package_type
  • GTIN (+ how many are valid)
