GENERAL OVERVIEW

  • You must be a Seattle Made member to be featured at the store.
  • After you have been selected for inclusion you should receive an order (PO) from an individual buyer at Stellar. In some cases the buyers have assistant buyers so please be aware that subsequent orders may come from assistant buyers.
  • Consider adding the Seattle Made logo to your packaging or tags. Visible Seattle branding appeals to travelers.
  • Buyers will review new product lines on a rolling basis. Feel free to submit any time you have a new product launch. Please review the submission process to submit new lines. 
  • Please be patient with buyer inquiries. Buyers are often out on the road but should respond to inquires within 7 – 10 days. 
  • Buyers should be able to provide you sell through sheets so you are able to plan production accordingly. Ask your buyer if they can produce a sell through sheet for you on a quarterly basis.


STEPS TO PROCESS YOUR ORDER

1. Confirm your order with your buyer

Reply “Received” to your buyer and supply chain at supplychain@spi-team.com


2. Create your order including UPC and retail pricing labels

You must be capable of including UPC and retail labels on your products based on your PO order. Stellar can create UPC codes for you, so you do not need to purchase them, but you will need to create the labels. The barcodes can be produced here.

If you do not have barcodes ask Andre Lendoiro at alendoiro@spi-team, cc your buyer as well, to produce barcodes numbers for you so you may create labels.


3. Ship your order through FedEx

All shipments are paid for by Stellar Airports if they are processed by FedEx on the Stellar Airport account. Please review the attached documents below to ship your items via FedEx. Failure to Comply with Stellar Shipping Guidelines will result in chargebacks or refusal of product.

4. Submit your invoice

Please submit all invoices including your Stellar created invoice number to: stellarinvoices@hmshost.com.

Price Discrepancies – Price increases will not be honored unless approved prior to processing order.                        

Discontinued Items – Reply to your buyer and supply chain at supplychain@spi-team.com.

Out of Stock or Backordered Items – Back orders will only be accepted upon approval. Please notify Stellar of any items that will not ship or provide in stock date to request approval for extension. Reply to your buyer and supply chain at supplychain@spi-team.com.  

Cancellation Date –  Please be sure to ship your order by Stellar’s listed ship date. Stellar will create a cancellation date approximately 3 days after the listed ship date.The system will then cancel out the PO if it is not “received” by Stellar by the cancellation date.


5. Issues with invoices or past due payment Inquiries

For any payment questions, past-due invoices, or credit memos, email (spreadsheet format is preferred and of course reference invoice number) opccustomersupport@hmshost.com

Invoices (example of Net 30) do not start until the order has been processed at the store so please consider shipping time and an additional 2 – 3 days for the store to confirm your inventory before considering an invoice overdue. In most cases I have recommended waiting a Net 40 from the day items have been shipped before inquiring about an overdue payment.
