Approved vendors for your organization use the Vendor portal to maintain their company information, maintain company contacts, and manage transactions. The Profile page contains all of the critical vendor company details including address, banking, and company demographic information. The Vendor profile request type controls the settings and fields that appear on the Profile page in the Vendor portal.

You can define one or more vendor profile configurations. This lets you configure the Profile page based on the fields that you want to display and require by country/region.

  1. Click Procurement and sourcing > Setup > Vendors > Vendor request configurations.

  2. In the Request type field, select Vendor profile.

  3. Click New.


    If you do not click New, the changes that you make will affect the default Vendor profile request type. The default profile is used by vendors in countries/regions for which you do not define a profile.

  4. On the Fields FastTab, indicate whether each business information field that appears in the list should be displayed, hidden, or required on the Profile page.

  5. On the Countries/regions FastTab, select the countries/regions to which the profile applies.

    • The country/region that is identified in the primary address for the vendor is used to determine which unsolicited vendor profile to display on the Profile page.

    • The default profile applies to all countries/regions that do not have a defined profile. You cannot select specific countries/regions for the default profile.
