An EDI 810 is an invoice (also known as EDIFACT INVOIC). The EDI 810 invoice is typically sent in response to a purchase order (EDI 850) as a request to receive payments for good or services rendered.

The purpose of an EDI 810 invoice is to allow for a seamless exchange of billable information such as goods and/or services rendered between two separate companies. The supplier will send the trading partner an 810 in response to an EDI 850 purchase order. With DataTrans WebEDI, the supplier will generate the EDI 810 invoice from the EDI 850 purchase order. DataTrans intuitive forms will pull the relevant information onto the EDI 810 invoice to be sent back to the trading partner. The 997 functional acknowledgment (also known as CONTRL) will notify the supplier the EDI 810 invoice has been received.
