EDI 810 is an invoice, also known as EDIFACT INVOIC, that is typically sent in response to a purchase order (EDI 850) as a request to receive payments for good or services rendered. An electronic invoice, similar to a paper-based invoice, is one of the most commonly used EDI transaction sets by trading partners.

- Invoice number, reference number & date
- Purchase order number & Vendor number
- Payment terms
- Billing and shipping details
- Carrier details
- Product/service identifiers, description and quantities
- Pricing, charges and/or allowances

Workflow of EDI 810 Invoice
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.
