Often abbreviated as e-invoicing or einvoicing, is an electronic form of billing used between customers and their suppliers. The documents shared between the two parties could include invoices, purchase orders, payment terms or any other relevant documents and data that are needed for supplier to submit and buyer to approve for payment. The typical forum used for electronic invoicing is a vendor portal or supplier portal which can supplement existing EDI relationships and provide a self-service mechanism so buying companies can move their vendor off of a paper based system into an electronic vendor self-service model.
