Sending an order to a supplier - OrderRequest

The Buyer orders products from the Supplier’s PunchOut Catalog.

Procurement applications convert approved purchase requisitions into one or more

purchase orders. A purchase order is a formal request from a buying organization to a supplier to fulfil a contract.

The OrderRequest document is analogous to a purchase order.

When you configure your account on a network commerce hub, you specify a URL to which all cXML purchase orders will be sent. Upon receiving a purchase order, you send it to your internal order management system and fulfil it as you normally would.

Your website must also return an Order Response document to the network commerce hub, which tells the buyer that you successfully received and parsed the purchase order.

The following example shows an OrderRequest for an item:
