Hello and Good Morning, Here at eBridge we strive to keep our readers and clients up to date on the latest updates and changes from the integration industry. We recently received a notice from the Costco Wholesale EDI department informing us of changes that will be put into effect November 30th. The notice we received read as follows:
Costco Wholesale is currently involved in a project to implement an ERP software solution provided by SAP. Because you are currently an EDI partner with Costco this will impact you as our EDI requirements must change to accommodate the SAP model. Please see the information below for more details regarding the new requirements that must be followed along with our compliance date. Costco’s new requirements:
- Product identification number transmitted on Costco’s 850/860 Purchase Order/Change must be used on your 810 Invoice.
- All Item level discounts (excluding rebates) transmitted on Costco’s 850/860 Purchase Order/Change must be included on your 810 Invoice.
What we need from you: All of the below bolded information transmitted to you on the 850/860 Purchase Order/Change must be included on the 810 Invoice you transmit to Costco Wholesale. This includes the PO number, PO date, PO terms, quantity, price, product identification number (Costco item number, Supplier item number, UPC, GTIN, etc.) and all item level discounts (excluding rebates). Your compliance is required by November 30, 2012. If you are already in compliance, we thank you and no action is required. Thank you for your help in this process. Should you need to contact us please email EDI@costco.com or call our EDI hotline at 425-313-6791. Costco Wholesale EDI Department
As more companies update their current ERP systems or change specific documentation formats, eBridge will continue to update their clients and customers about the changes being made as soon as possible. Please don’t forget that the effective date for these changes is November 30th, 2012. If you require any additional info or clarification, please contact us or leave a comment below.

As we continue to share integration information via our Blog, I thought I would highlight one of our most popular posts from the past : http://www.ebridgeconnections.com/blog/how-does-edi-work/
Let us know if you have questions regarding your EDI? Leave comments below and we will respond.
What is an EDI 855 Document?
The Purchase Order Acknowledgement or 855 is an EDI document sent by the vendor or Trading Partner to the customer to acknowledge the details of the Purchase Order or 850 that was received. If terms of the purchase order cannot be met then this document can also be used to provide the details of the changes to the order that the vendor needed to make (for example an item ordered is out of stock and cannot be shipped or the delivery date cannot be met).
The types of changes that need to be recorded on the 855 vary by EDI trading partner. The changes are denoted on each line item by a change code.
Common 855 Change Codes
- DR Item Accepted – Date Rescheduled
- IA Item Accepted
- IB Item Backordered
- ID Item Deleted (Use to indicate Item is being Discontinued)
- IP Item Accepted – Price Changed
- IQ Item Accepted – Quantity Changed
- IR Item Rejected

We just received the following notice from Costco regarding changes to their EDI codes for tax qualifiers. Despite the August 24th implementation date, we have already updated the maps on ePortal to comply with the changes. This means that all ePortal users doing business with Costco will be able to continue business as usual during the changes.
