My Suppliers allows you to save suppliers you have found using the Supplier Database in groups for easy access and organization. You can group suppliers any way you'd like to meet your business needs. Add contact information as well to have access to your supplier data wherever you go!

Creating groups within My Suppliers allows you to save lists of suppliers you may use for different reasons. In the sourcing phase, we recommend creating a new group for each product you are looking to source. This will keep all of your potential suppliers organized and you will be able to easily analyze each suppliers history against one another.
Your groups and suppliers can be accessed from the My Suppliers section here:

Another great way to use My Suppliers would be to create a group and add all of your established suppliers that you have done business with before.
The data for each supplier will be continually updated each time they import to anyone in the US. Saving your existing suppliers will allow you to check and see what else they are manufacturing and who they are exporting to as it could be one of your competitors.
