How To Use Diplomat MFT To Automate Wayfair Flat File Transfers

Step 1: Fill out Wayfair’s DIR (Data Integration Requirements) Form

Download and complete Wayfair’s “Data Integration Request” form, which you obtain from your Wayfair technical contact.  You may email “edi@wayfair.com” to obtain the required form.  Choose “SFTP Direct Connection” for the connectivity option.

Step 2: Install Diplomat MFT

Download Diplomat MFT and install it onto a server system (physical server or virtual machine) within your secure network, or in your Cloud.  This needs to be a machine that is always running, such as an application server, print server, or file server.

Step 3: Configure A Diplomat Transaction for Send and Receive

You will need to set up two transactions for Wayfair — one to send files and one to retrieve files from the Wayfair SFTP Server.  Both will use the authentication credentials provided to you by Wayfair.  Diplomat MFT supports SSH client key authentication, which adds more security to your account than just a password, so we strongly recommend you use both a password and SSH key.  One transaction will pull files from the Wayfair SFTP Server’s “/outgoing” folder into your network, while another will push files from your network to the Wayfair SFTP server’s “/incoming” folder.  Set the schedule in Diplomat MFT to execute every hour.

Step 4: Configure Notifications

Diplomat MFT will automatically push and pull your flat files to and from Wayfair’s SFTP Server, so you can sit back and relax. But if any errors do occur, you will want to know about them. So be sure to set up an email, Slack, or MS Teams alert whenever there is a warning or error in the Wayfair SFTP processing.  That way, you will know of any error in real time, and can use the monitoring and logging tools of Diplomat MFT to triage the situation.
