I am looking for information regarding this subject: If we have multiple suppliers of similar products, What is the best way for them to submit their inventory to us so we can collect the information then store it in one database that would be "our inventory". It would be ideal if they can manage their inventory on their end so we can be informed if the product is goes from in stock to out of stock.

While you could do it with Airtable's forms, that would get pretty tedious pretty quickly for your suppliers. Especially because they wouldn't be able to manage their inventory, and also because each form would have to be filled out in its entirety (unless you gave them a prefill link).

The #1 best way of doing this would be to use an Airtable portal instead, such as Noloco, Softr, JetAdmin, or Glide.

Noloco is really the most powerful portal available for Airtable. I give a step-by-step tutorial of Noloco on this episode of the BuiltOnAir podcast.

And I am giving a webinar tomorrow morning at 8:30am Pacific Time on Building a Client Portal on Noloco powered by Airtable at this link.

p.s. If you have a budget for your project and you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant to help you with any of this, please feel free to contact me through my website: Airtable consulting — ScottWorld

Hey thanks for that info scott! I am currently looking in to those solutions. Now with Noloco and regarding pricing. When it say $28 per seat for the business plan. Would that mean each of my suppliers would count as a "seat"? 

No, your suppliers would be “external users”. Go to the “customer portal” pricing. You pay one price for up to 100 suppliers, and then you can add more from there,
