Question

How do I know which type of invoice to create?

Answer

There are three different avenues you can use to submit invoices to your customer through Ariba Network. View each of the following invoice type to determine which one meets your needs:

PO Invoice
Create a PO-based Invoice if your customer sent you a Purchase Order (PO):

  1. Go to the Workbench tab at the top of the page.
  2. Select Orders to view all orders.
  3. Click the PO number you want to invoice.
  4. Click Create Invoice > Standard Invoice.

Non-PO Invoice
Create a Non-PO Invoice if there is no PO in your account, and you do not have a Contract number from your customer:

  1. Click Create > Non-PO Invoice from the upper-right of the home page.
  2. Select your customer from the pull-down list (If a customer does not appear in the list, they either do not accept this type of invoice or you need to request a trading relationship with the customer).
  3. Select Standard Invoice and click Next.

Make sure you have a sales or work order number from your customer to enter on the invoice.

Contract Invoice
Create a Contract-based Invoice if you have a Contract number from your customer:

  1. Click Create > Contract Invoice from the upper-right of the home page.
  2. Select the radio button next to your customer (only customers who accept contract invoices appear on this page).
  3. Click Next.
  4. On the invoice, click Select next to Contract to select the contract you want to invoice.

If you do not see the option to create a Contract Invoice, your customers have not sent any Contracts to the account you are currently using.
