What is an EDI 857?

The EDI 857 Shipment and Billing Notice provides the recipient of a shipment with data for both receipt planning and payment generation.


These EDI 859 documents adhere to the x12 format specified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), a non-profit organization regulating EDI formats in the U.S.


How to use an EDI 857?
An EDI 857 Shipment and Billing Notice is used by the supplier to indicate to the buyer the details of the purchase as in an EDI 810 document, as well as information about the shipment as in an EDI 856 document. It acts as a combination of the EDI 810 Invoice and the EDI 856 Shipping Notice/Manifest.


After the EDI 857 Shipment and Billing Notice is received by the buyer, an EDI 997 Functional Acknowledgment is sent back from the buyer indicating that the invoice was successfully received.
