You can build your Tradeshift network by adding your customers and suppliers as contacts. In order to add a contact, go to your Connections page. Here you can use the search bar to see if the company you are looking for is already on Tradeshift. If so, add them to your Network by clicking the button. This new connection will have to accept your invitation to connect before you can exchange documents. If they are not on Tradeshift, then you will need to add them manually by clicking on the green "Add contact" button on the right of the page. Here, you will have to fill out the company details and choose a delivery method.
