It's Easy and Free to Sell Your Inventory

We let Suppliers post their stock for free – no limitations on quantity of parts. Some of our Suppliers post 100 parts, while some post 1 million parts.

All we require is that you clearly identify your stock file as In-stock (in your warehouse and typically ready to ship the same day), or Available (not in your warehouse, but can be ordered and shipped within 7 days).

Follow these steps to post your inventory:

  1. Sign-up for a free Supplier Account where you provide company information, so that our Buyers can send RFQs or contact your company to order needed parts.
  2. We accept a wide variety of Inventory file formats (Excel xls, xlsx, csv in addition to dat, fle, txt, xml). Our preferred format is Excel csv.
  3. Email your stock file to supplier@componentsearch.com, and include a signature that identifies your company name.
    1. If you have both In-stock and Available inventory files, then send two separate files with file names to clearly distinguish, or a single file with a column that designates in-stock or available.
  4. We will review and approve your inventory file within 24 hours.

    Note: If your inventory file exceeds Email maximum size limits (e.g. 25 Mbytes), or it is more convenient for you to send via FTP, contact us at supplier@componentsearch.com with a subject line = FTP request <Supplier name>.

The requirements for your inventory file are simple:

  1. The only mandatory fields are a part number and quantity (Red in table below).
