Order directly from suppliers

The Supplier Market for Lightspeed Retail. Supplier Market is a fully integrated stock ordering solution that connects merchants to industry-leading suppliers directly from their point of sale.

No third party tools, no external sites and no order fees⁠—just a convenient way for SMBs to get the most out of their supply chain.

Key Advantages of the Lightspeed Supplier Network:

  • A harmonized marketplace. Provides the same direct supplier access and inventory visibility as the big box stores, easily managed through a single platform.
  • Automates manual ordering and consolidates supplier portals in the POS. Improves transparency of when a shipment will arrive and what goods will be included, shortening the receiving cycle and getting items into consumers’ hands more quickly.
  • Makes new suppliers and products more discoverable. Product details, including photos, are imported into the POS with a click of a button, eliminating a barrier to selling online.
  • Increases control of supplier branding. Easy import workflow for retailers ensures merchants are using brand-approved names, product descriptions and high-quality imagery.
  • Provides suppliers aggregated and anonymized sell-through data in real time. Brands are granted unprecedented visibility of goods sold by independent merchants. The Lightspeed Supplier Network will be initially available for retailers in the Bike, Outdoor Sport, Jewelry and Pet verticals.
