Lowe's Vendor Portal Upgrade: Addressing Deduction Challenges

Lowes Vendor Portal DeductionsIn the world of retail deductions are something every supplier has been troubled with. Be it the high volume or be it the steep learning curve for each retailer. But it is also a challenge that cannot be taken for granted since it can greatly affect the financials by eating away profit margins or by reducing the cash flow of the company.


The problem with deduction management varies from one supplier to another. One might face trouble with the high volume of deductions from one retailer, while for some, the volume wouldn't be an issue, but managing deductions from multiple retailers would be the challenge.


One such case is of our client for whom the biggest challenge was to manage deductions from over 20 retailers. We believe there are many more such suppliers out there for whom volume might not be that big of a challenge but managing deductions from multiple smaller retailers is what gives them a tough time.

Lowe's stands out as one such retailer. In this article, we delve into Lowe's deductions, shedding light on Lowe's Deduction Codes. We'll also discuss navigating their portal and explore the feasibility of automating the entire process.


Disputing Lowes Deductions Manually

2) Finding Invoices With Deductions on Lowes Portal:
 After logging in, head to Vendor Inquiry where you will find invoices with deductions.

3) Start The Process Of Disputing:
Once you find the deduction you want to dispute, select it and fill in the required information like amount, reason for dispute, and a brief explanation of why you think this deduction is invalid.

4) Attach Proof of Documentation:
Based on the type of deduction, you now have to attach documents as proof. For example, if it is a shortage deduction, attach documents from shippers like the Bill Of Lading (BOL) and Proof Of Delivery (POD). Similarly, if it is a pricing deduction, attach the Purchase Order and Invoice.


These steps have to be repeated each time you want to dispute a deduction. This process is slow and tedious requiring you to manually download the documents from various sources and upload them to Lowes Portal.
