What is an EDI 850?

The EDI 850 is an electronic data interchange transaction that contains information about a purchase order. Also known as an 850 PO, the EDI 850, is often the first transaction in an order-to-cash cycle, but not for VMI and other processes.


Companies often utilize retail EDI VANs, AS2 or other technologies to support this process.  There are ESB and iPaaS solutions that can support this process.


The EDI 850 is not only used in Retail EDI environments, but also in automotive, wholesale and many others.
