If you have any questions about the manufacturers, please feel free to reach out to our team via chat or email and we are happy to make suggestions based on your product and chosen operating model.

Selecting a manufacturer

To start working with a manufacturer, create a new Purchase Order or open an automatically batched order and select the manufacturer you would like to work with from the drop down.
You can only pick a manufacturer who has submitted a bid on your production. If you would like to work with a manufacturer who has not submitted a bid, please resubmit a bid and contact that manufacturer.

Once you submit the purchase order (PO), an email will be sent to your selected manufacturer to accept and get started. You will be notified when they accept and can begin ordering materials. The manufacturer has 48 hours to review and accept the purchase order.

Onboarding your own manufacturer

At N.A.bld, we want you to streamline your production. If you have an amazing production partner already - that’s great! You can always onboard your own manufacturing partner to the platform.

To request access for your manufacturing partner, email us at hello@nabld.com with the name and email address of the point-of-contact (POC) for your production partner.
