Version 12

    The transmission process via the service provider Basware complements Mercedes-Benz eInvoicing portfolio. Basware offers different ways of invoice sending and is very appropriate in regards to usage, data quality as well as from a monetary perspective for both parties.
    Please find below the different options:

    1) Premium

    The supplier can send the invoice data in many different ways to Basware (structured files or usage of a printer driver). The service provider takes care about data validation, converts the input data into the target format and subsequently delivers the document to the invoice receiver.


    By choosing structured files transmission, be aware that one-time connection costs may arise. 

    If the sending company already uses its own eInvoicing provider, the selected partner can still be used. To enable a smooth invoice transfer to the recipient (here Mercedes-Benz) both service providers have to agree upfront on the format as well as the transmission channel (“roaming”). 


    Annual packages are offered based on invoice quantities. Within this package, documents can be sent to multiple receivers. 

    If the ordered package is smaller than the transmitted documents, an additional fee for exceeding transactions will be charged (see details below).
