x12 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgment

855 Specifications

 The x12 Transaction Set contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Purchase Order Acknowledgment Transaction Set (855) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used to provide for customary and established business and industry practice relative to a seller's acknowledgment of a buyer's purchase order. This transaction set can also be used as notification of a vendor generated order. This usage advises a buyer that a vendor has or will ship merchandise as prearranged in their partnership.

 The 855 communicates whether the PO was accepted, rejected or what changes may have been made to accepted orders by the seller. The 855 shows changes to the 850 as follows:

  • Accepted - no changes
  • Rejected
  • Accepted with Changes e.g. lower quantities of items available, items removed from order or even backordered items for a later shipment date
