Access, Logging In and VSA Identification

How to Get Access

In order to gain access to the Partner Portal and other Best Buy managed applications such as Ship It Right (SIR) and Product Data Management (PDM), you must have a Vendor Identity account. Your company Vendor Security Admin (VSA) will need to invite you.

Once invited and registered, you will be given a Vendor ID (VID) and will automatically have access to log into the Partner Portal.

To gain access to other applications, see the section titled Users: Accounts and Access
