Hayneedle Drop Ship Vendor Performance Certification Program Details
Hayneedle has a certification program for high-performing vendors. High-performing vendors will not receive debits for specific shipping errors. Certification will be based on quarterly performance and if achieved, the certification will apply to the subsequent quarter. All three criterion must be met and performance is visible via our supplier portal. In order to be considered for Certification, a vendor must have at least 90 days of demand as measured by their first order date and have a minimum of 45 orders per quarter.
On Time Shipping:
- Each purchase order has an original committed ship date showing when the order must ship.
- If the order does not ship by the original committed ship date it will then be reported on the monthly compliance reporting for distribution to the vendor.
- If the order is one day late we do not assess a debit, however we do report it to you.
- If the order is late by 3-4 business days beyond the original committed ship date, a debit is issued.
- If the order is late by 5 plus business days beyond the original committed ship date then a debit is issued.
- If the order has a lead time of < 2 days, compliance charges will be waived.
- Certified Vendors are exempt.
