Exchange electronic documents via the PEPPOL network.

What is PEPPOL?

The Pan-European Public Procurement Online (PEPPOL) network enables trading partners across Europe to exchange electronic documents via the PEPPOL network. The documents that can be processed with this include electronic orders, shipping notes, invoices, contracts, and more. Through the Access points, buyers and suppliers can connect to all users of the PEPPOL network. For example, users can connect to the system once, send and receive invoices internationally, and place purchase orders and tenders.

PEPPOL consists of some standards that enable cross-border eProcurement. A contract structure owned by OpenPEPPOL regulates the use of this all. Although the network is not an eProcurement platform, it does offer a range of technical specifications that can be implemented in existing financial and ERP systems.



OpenPEPPOL is an international non-profit association. They created the association to allow companies to communicate electronically with each other and with every European public institution. Before the PEPPOL network establishment, it was already possible to invoice internationally and place international orders. However, due to the many different systems, regulations, and standards, the existing channels were not connected, so that invoices and orders often still had to be created manually.

OpenPEPPOL offers a channel with fixed protocols and is legally compliant internationally. This allows companies to invoice internationally and exchange orders. More and more government agencies and countries are also using the network for tenders and sending and receiving invoices. Many governments in Europe already use the system, and several countries have made the channel mandatory to be able to invoice to the government.

E-Invoicing and PEPPOL

Saving, sending, and receiving financial documents has various regulations and standards, especially internationally. These regulations were standardized in the so-called “PEPPOL BIS” (Business Interoperability Specifications). If you use e-Invoicing or an eDelivery platform, it is easy to comply with these standards and laws. With the Dynatos e-Invoicing platform, you can archive and receive and send financial documents in pre-formulated standards and processes. One of those being through the PEPPOL access point.
