How is the Ariba Network Transaction fee calculated?
Question

How does Ariba calculate the transaction fee on my subscription invoice?

Answer
 
Transaction fees are calculated as a small percentage of your total annual transaction volume across all customer relationships. Transaction volume is calculated as the total financial value of all purchase orders (POs) (excluding cancelled orders)  plus the financial value of all non-PO invoices or all invoices generated from a PO, whichever is greater inside a choreography level.
 
These fees are billed quarterly and the percentage charged will depend on the type of the account.
 
Enterprise Account - Standard Relationships:
Enterprise Account - Critical Relationships:
 
In order not to penalize high-volume relationships, Transaction fees will be capped at $20,000 USD per relationship, on an annual cycle. The Transaction Activity Report provides detailed information about the transaction volume and documents for all your customer relationships. When you view this report for a quarterly invoice, the report displays the transaction volume and documents for all your customer relationships from the previous quarter. When you view the transaction activity report for an annual invoice, the report displays the transaction volume and documents for all your customer relationships from the past 12 months.

You can see the documents SAP Ariba used to determine the Ariba Network Transaction fee by downloading the Transaction Activity Report from your invoice page.

*For international customers, our transaction levels are available via the Program Overview.

Additional Information

If you have been transacting with a customer since before September 2011, the transaction fees for that buyer will be annual instead of quarterly.
