When our Implementation Analyst is asking us for our Vendor number with our retailers, is that the same as our DUNS number?

Hi Megan! Thank you for your post! Often times retailers will have a unique number assigned to each vendor for identification purposes, and this would be known as a Vendor Number. A DUNS number, in comparison, is a 9-digit number specific to a vendor's physical location, and is obtained from Dun & Bradstreet at www.dnb.com.
