Lightspeed Retail maintains catalogs in many industries. Our customers help us acquire the catalog from the vendor by including us on mailing list updates.
You can also invite your vendors to the Lightspeed Supplier Network. This platform allows your suppliers to connect their product catalogs (including images!) directly into Lightspeed Retail. Once Lightspeed Suppliers is available, you'll be able to place supplier orders from within Lightspeed and import the item details to your inventory in a couple clicks.
Submitting your catalogs to our Retail Imports team
All files need to be sent in either a text or Excel file (tab delimited or comma separated). Our preferred format is .csv text files. Do not send order forms, they cannot be read by a computer. If your vendor has an order form instead of a list, let them know this file is for use with your point of sale system and they should be able to get you the right type of file.
