Additional Information

With Standard accounts, you have access to receive documents from your customers. If your customer allows it, you can send invoices, order confirmations, ship notices, and service entry sheets to customers.

Optionally, you can upgrade to a full-use account to take advantage of additional benefits on Ariba Network.

Important: If you choose to upgrade to a full-use account and you reach a certain level of transaction volume with your customer, you might need to pay a subscription fee to continue transacting with your customer through Ariba Network. For more information on the Ariba Network fee structure, visit the subscriptions and pricing page, and choose your region from the Global Pricing area on the right side of the page.
