What is punchout?
The business message Peppol BIS Punch Out enables an advanced and dynamic ordering process for customers and suppliers.
Punchout combines the functionality of e-orders and e-catalogs with a structured process — in one business message. The advantages compared to standard electronic orders are greater flexibility, efficiency, control and a simplified user experience. Punchout allows customers to create a shopping cart from an up-to-date catalog or price list, such as an e-commerce website. Based on the cart’s content, the customer places the order directly to the supplier from their purchasing or ordering system.
