Swipe right on Peppol

Peppol is an interoperability infrastructure, co-funded by the European Commission and 18 government agencies. The goal is to simplify the purchase-to-pay process between government bodies, and B2B Companies (for both buyers and suppliers). In simple terms, PEPPOL offers a standardized messaging connection for e-ordering, e-invoicing, electronic credit notes and advanced shipping notifications (ASNs). These technologies automate the information exchange across the supply chain, reducing the cost and potential risk of errors from manual intervention.

The Peppol network is an open, many-to-many platform, with standardization on all three necessary levels:

1. addressing and routing of the messages
2. document specifications and
3. network infrastructure





What are the benefits of using Peppol?

There are many benefits to using Peppol. You will save time and money by enabling your business messaging to be exchanged digitally, rather than on paper. You can easily connect to other trading partners who are also using Peppol. You will also reduce the amount of errors. It's also important to note that within the EU, many governments are now requiring e-invoicing when sending invoices to governments. Peppol allows your business to be compliant with these new regulations.


Connecting to the PEPPOL Transport Infrastructure takes place using Access Points (operated by Access Point providers, e.g. OpusCapita is one Access Point Service Provider) in a similar way to how sending and receiving email requires access to an Internet mail server (provided by Internet Mail Service Providers).
