New Supplier Registration

Kohl's uses the Ariba Sourcing Network as a database for supplier profile information. To be considered as one of Kohl's suppliers, use the links below to review the registration process and fill out our supplier registration form.

Please have the following items available when completing the supplier registration form.

  • Basic Company Information
  • Federal ID Number & DUNS Number
  • Annual Sales Information (current & past 4 years)
  • References
  • Diversity & Sustainability Certifications (if applicable)

During the registration process, you will set up a username and password to log in and update your company profile as applicable. The same login information will be used to participate in bid opportunities. Kohl's will contact you when bid opportunities are available for the commodity areas you have selected in your company profile.

Please note that registration as a prospective supplier is not a guarantee of business. When a category comes up for bid, we review all registered suppliers and contact them if they meet the program specifications.
