  • Payment Order/Remittance Advice (820): Walgreens uses Payment Order/Remittance Advice documents to electronically transfer payments to its suppliers for goods and services received. These documents provide detailed information about the payment, including the invoice number, payment amount, payment date, and any deductions or discounts applied.

Shipment status messages include information such as the current status of the shipment (e.g., in transit, delivered, etc.) and any estimated delivery dates.
