855 transaction set is a Purchase Order Acknowledgement. It is used by sellers to confirm the receipt of a purchase from a buyer, eliminating the need to call or fax a confirmation.
This 855 also communicates whether the PO was accepted or rejected, or what changes may have been made to accepted orders by the seller. The 855 can indicate that the order was accepted, rejected or accepted with changes, as follows:
Accepted with Changes
- All line items accepted, change freight or cash terms
- Change or reject one or more line items, no header-level changes
- Header-level changes, and one or more line items changed or rejected
