EDI 820 - Payment Order / Order Remittance Advice
What is the EDI 820 definition?
The EDI 820 is used to share payment or order remittance advice. Most often, the EDI 820 is issued by a buyer after the receipt of an EDI 810 Invoice or an EDI 850 Purchase Order to communicate payment information.
How is an EDI 820 Payment Order / Order Remittance Advice used?
The EDI 820 Payment Order / Order Remittance Advice is used when an open account needs to be settled or to advise the paying trading partner of the details or potential adjustments with a given payment.
After receiving the EDI 820, the buying trading partner generates a 997 Functional Acknowledgement to send back confirming the successful reception of the EDI 820 transaction.
