Hosted Catalogs

Hosted catalogs are collections of items that are searchable directly from the Coupa home screen. You can create a catalog using Coupa’s CSV catalog template and then upload it into Coupa. Buyers can upload hosted catalogs directly within Coupa. Suppliers can upload catalogs through the CSP, where it can be approved by the buyer and made available from within Coupa.
