EDI 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgement


What is the EDI 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgement transaction set?

The EDI 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgement transaction set confirms the receipt by a seller of an EDI 850 Purchase Order set from a buyer. The EDI 855 can indicate that the order was accepted, rejected or accepted with changes. Indication of product availability may or may not be provided. In the case of accepted with changes, the buyer may see:

  • Header level changes only: all line items accepted, change freight or cash terms 
  • No header-level changes: change or reject one or more line items
  • Header-level changes and one or more line items changed or rejected
