Testing EDI Transactions

Testing EDI Transactions (Barneys EDI Trading Partners)

Testing EDI transactions with Barneys is a part of vendor registration. This is a mandatory step for all suppliers and the EDI agreement is standard for all. Testing appointment: A Barneys EDI provider (InterTrade) representative will contact you to ensure your readiness to receive a generic test PO.

Pre-testing validations: There are 2 key validations:

  • Ensure the trading partner setup on your VAN is done with the Barneys Test ID (BARNEYSNEWYORKT)
  • Confirm that you have mapped the 850, 856 and 810 transactions according to Barneys’ requirements in their mapping guides

Testing requirements: A 997 (Functional Acknowledgement) transaction must be returned upon receipt of the Barneys 850 generic test PO. Up to 3 test 850 transactions can be sent within a 30 day period from the starting test date until a clean 997 is received. Additional testing fees will apply when exceeding:

  • More than 3 tests per transaction type,
  • A testing period of 30 days from the kick-off testing date

Test Completion: InterTrade will notify Barneys upon completion of your 850 connectivity testing.  Once both InterTrade confirms your connectivity testing of the 850 is completed, you will then complete integrated transaction testing with Barneys directly.

Phase One Test:
