How do I order from my own Supplier?
If you have a preferred Supplier outside of FoodByUs, you now have the option to add and order from them straight on our platform.
To add your direct Supplier:
Step 1: Sign in to your FoodByUs dashboard.
Step 2: In your dashboard menu, click on "Search" then click on the category where you'd like to add your Supplier.
Step 3: On the category's page, scroll down to the bottom then click on “Add Your Own”.
This will launch the "Add Direct Supplier" pop-up window.
Step 4: Click on “Add Own Supplier” to request FoodByUs to add your direct Supplier. Supply their contact details in the designated boxes. Once completed, click on the "Suggest Direct Supplier" button to submit.
A confirmation message will pop up.
Wait for your request to be fulfilled within 24-48 hours.
|Be sure a prior relationship exists between you and the direct Supplier you wish to add.
Otherwise, we cannot guarantee your order fulfillment.
In the course of shopping, you may also click on “Select from Existing Suppliers” to choose a Supplier that's already in our Marketplace.
Ordering from your direct Supplier:
You may start ordering from your direct Supplier through FoodByUs, once they've been added. To place your order:
