The PEPPOL network and standard enable you to connect to your trading partners internationally via PEPPOL Access Points like OpusCapita.
What is PEPPOL?
PEPPOL (Pan-European Public Procurement Online) is an interoperability infrastructure, co-funded by the European Commission and 18 government agencies. The goal is to simplify and standardize the B2G and B2B exchange of e-invoices, e-orders, and other supply chain documents.
PEPPOL strives to standardize on three levels: routing, document specifications, and network infrastructure.
” PEPPOL has a very clear benefit:
It is a standard message type and it can be re-used, making it efficient and quick to set up. “
Alina Nilander, Development Manager, Peab
PEPPOL orders are electronic orders delivered via the PEPPOL open network in standard formats like PEPPOL BIS Order only 3.2 or PEPPOL BIS Ordering 3.2.

E-orders are processed, delivered and received from buyer’s system to the supplier’s system within seconds. They’re fast & reliable, enabling high automation and efficiency.

The PEPPOL network
PEPPOL easily connects you to other trading partners who are also using PEPPOL, eliminating the need to set up direct connections.
In addition to the cost savings and better accuracy from switching from paper to electronic, the PEPPOL BIS Billing format has become the standard in many countries. While this makes PEPPOL a compliance requirement, it also simplifies the exchange of electronic documents internationally.
How PEPPOL network works
OpusCapita is a certified PEPPOL Access Point
The sender sends an electronic document (an e-invoice, e-order, etc.) via their Access Point provider.
The Access Point typically validates the document and identifies the recipient’s Access Point.
The sender’s Access Point delivers the document to the recipient’s Access Point via the open network.
The recipient’s Access Point delivers the document to the recipient.
With our Business Network solutions, you can use the OpusCapita Access Point as one interoperability option to exchange documents with your trade partners that use other Access Point providers.
Senders and receivers in PEPPOL are identified using ISO6523 identifiers. Depending on the country, they are organization IDs, VAT IDs, public sector IDs, etc.
To send electronic documents via PEPPOL, your receiver’s identifier must be found in the routing of the document. Similarly, to receive documents, your identifier must be found in the routing. OpusCapita Routing Service automatically handles this for you.
PEPPOL processes are specified in documents called Business Interoperability Specifications (BISs). OpusCapita supports all the document types:
Peppol BIS Billing 3.0
Peppol BIS Ordering 3.2
Peppol BIS Catalogue with or without Response 3.1
Peppol BIS Despatch Advice 3.1
Peppol BIS Message Level Response 3.0
