No, e-invoicing does not refer to invoices sent via the internet - a pdf in an email, for example.

An e-invoice is actually a data set containing all the information from the invoice being sent or received. The e-invoice network posts the data set with the sender and receiver identification numbers.  

Due to these parameters, the network knows exactly

  • Where it should be delivered
  • As well as who the specific customer or vendor is that should be receiving it.

The delivery process is fully automated, and in many cases, it happens within a few seconds.

Depending on your business needs, you can trigger this process by simply clicking a button or fully automating it within your ERP system.

E-invoices are the modern way of sending and receiving invoices without ever touching paper or creating a PDF.
