How do I add a new customer? How do I establish a trading relationship?
To establish a new customer relationship, provide your Ariba Network (ANID) number to your customer. With your ANID, your customer can add your company as a supplier.
You will not be able to invoice for a customer, or complete other related actions, until you establish a trading relationship with that customer. After you establish a relationship with your customer, you will have access to the Orders, Invoices, and Workbench tabs and can create invoices against purchase orders that your customer sends to your account.
Prior to establishing a relationship on the Ariba Network, SAP Ariba cannot provide customer contact details.
