Nomination to a Buying Channel at Ariba Network

We aim to improve the collaboration with our suppliers by increasing the order process efficiency with the use of digital buying channels. Therefore, we nominate our key suppliers to use specified buying channels. Suppliers already using Ariba Network can also initiate the enablement of any suitable buying channel. Upon the successful enablement suppliers start receiving purchase orders via SAP Ariba Network.

Once nominated suppliers are connected to SAP Ariba, our team assists with the buying channel specific steps. The only exceptional channel is E-mail Quotation Request: a solution for our low-volume suppliers. For this option, a connection to SAP Ariba is not required. For more information about answering E-mail Quotation Requests, please click here.

Suppliers can be enabled for the following 3 categories of buying channels
