Indigo has partnered with a third-party EDI provider to manage the transition of its vendors to EDI with Indigo Books & Music. Indigo and a third-party EDI provider have built an Internet portal site to make it easier for you to access pro
gram information including EDI specifications. When you complete the required form, you will see a requirement for an Indigo vendor # and a DUNS #. You can still start the transition to EDI without Indigo vendor # and/or your DUNS #; however, they will be needed for a third-party EDI provider to finally complete your transition to EDI with Indigo so please do provide them once available. If you do not have a DUNS # and prefer not to acquire one, please note this on the form.


As an existing vendor transacting via EDI with Indigo Books & Music Inc., you will be expected to interact as existing EDI documents are changed and/or new EDI documents implemented. You will be notified of any such developments and a third-party EDI provider will work directly with your organization to Test & Certify the new documents if required. If you already use a third-party EDI provider, you are not required to change to Indigo third-party EDI provider services. However, your provider will be required to Test & Certify through Indigo third-party EDI provider on new Indigo Books & Music Inc. documents.
