EDI 865

EDI 865: Purchase Order Acknowledgement

In the course of the purchasing process between a retailer and a wholesaler, sometimes purchase orders need to be changed.  Depending on the retailer involved or the stage of the purchasing process, making an adjustment can be exceptionally challenging.  To allow buyers to make adjustments quickly and with minimal hassle, the EDI 865 document was created to allow sellers to acknowledge to buyers that their PO request has been accepted or rejected. 


To be able to send or receive EDI 865 documents, you’ll have to adopt the Electronic Data Interchange and integrate it with your existing system.  Turn to Effective Data for the EDI solution to fit your company’s budget and integration requirements.

EDI 865 Transactions

EDI – the dominant electronic document exchange format for more than 50 years – remains the standard for fast, accurate data exchange between businesses.  Manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers use EDI for a range of activities related to product purchasing and shipping.  The EDI 865 document empowers buyers to make adjustments to purchase orders as needed based on a range of attributes:

  • Quantity increase or decrease
  • Add or delete items
  • Make changes to line items
  • Price change

Product sellers can send an acknowledgment of EDI 865 on a line-item basis, indicating whether requested changes are made.
