Load Suppliers into Coupa


You can load suppliers into Coupa using our bulk loader. Before loading suppliers into Coupa, you should manually create a supplier first. This will let you get a sense of what the supplier record looks like, and what information is important to include.

Creating a new supplier

  1. In Coupa go to Setup > Suppliers. and then click the Create button at the top left of the Suppliers table.


  2. On the Supplier create page that opens, fill in all required information. See Supplier Settings for more info on the fields.

  3. When you're done, scroll to the bottom and click Save.

Loading Multiple Suppliers

  1. In Coupa, go to Setup > Suppliers and then click the Load from file button at the top left of the Suppliers table.

  2. On the Bulk Load Suppliers page that opens, click the CSV template link to download the loader file.


  3. Add suppliers to the CSV file using Microsoft Excel or your favorite text editor. See Supplier Flat File Integration for more info on the supplier CSV template.

  4. When you're done making changes to the CSV, click the Choose File button to select your template file, and then click Start Upload.

  5. Review the changes on the Verify Data page, and when you're ready, click Finish Upload.

The Loading supplier page will continue to update as the file is loaded into Coupa. When it's finished, you'll get a message showing you the results, and any errors that may have occurred.
