Each trading partner has their own onboarding process. Typically these will either be a PDF or an online supplier setup form. In this guide, we will be getting to know your EDI mailbox and how to fill out a supplier setup form.
- To begin the process make sure you are logged into the XEDI portal and have the dashboard visible.
2. From here navigate to the drop-down in the top right and select the profile tab. In here you will find your account EDI mailbox details.
Account status: This indicates whether you are in Trial or have a payment plan.
Mailbox Status: This indicates whether you are in trial, test or live. Trial means your account is currently using the 30-day free trial. Test means you are currently testing to get set up with your trading partner. Live means you are connected and ready to send and receive EDI documents with your trading partner.

3. Now that you are up to speed with the profile section we can move onto filling out a supplier setup form. Each supplier setup form will be slightly different. However, in this guide we will cover the sections that will typically be on all of them.
