EDI 850 – Purchase Order
The EDI 850 is also refereed to by EDIFACT ORDERS and x12 850 Purchase Order. The EDI 850 represents an electronic purchase order that’s sent from a buyer to a seller, which request their want to buy goods or services. The electronic purchase order is one of the most common documents that should be included in all automated EDI systems.
The EDI 850 is a Purchase Order transaction set, used to place orders for goods or services. The EDI 850 usually provides the same information you would find on a Purchase Order (PO) document, which would include:
- Items And Prices
- Quantities Ordered
- Shipping Details
- Payment Terms

Companies that are making purchases usually use EDI purchase orders to order products to be shipped to a distribution center, to store locations or to end consumers. This document could have a single ship-to location or it can have multiple ship-to locations, such as for cross-dock orders.
