Audience: Suppliers

Rithum provides a number of options for you to manage invoice information with your trading partners. The best option for you depends on a number of factors. You may need to discuss the various options with your IT and operations departments to determine the best option for your needs.

Note: Rithum provides every account with their own SFTP account, which can be used with the data mapper tool and the flat-file exchange system. The platform also supports AS2 file exchange. If you require AS2, please contact Software Support.

Option Ease Description

Manually invoice an order using the web application


Very Easy

This is the fastest option if you’re invoicing a few orders at a time. You can enter invoice information manually, and the invoice is available to your trading partners as soon as you save the information.

For more information, see Creating an invoice.

Upload multiple invoices using an Excel file


Fairly Easy

This is the fastest option for invoicing a lot of orders quickly. Simply download the Invoices Excel Template file, enter your invoice information, and then upload the file through the web application.

For more information, see Uploading invoices.

Upload multiple invoices using the Data Mapper tool


Somewhat Easy

This is a great option for suppliers who already provide their retailers with a CSV or TAB delimited file. The Data Mapper tool will walk you through the process of mapping your data to the Rithum specifications so that you don’t have to build a custom file on your end. Once the mapping has been completed, you can upload your file and your orders will be invoiced.

For more information see Using the Data Mapper Tool.

Uploading invoices using flat-file exchange


Somewhat Difficult

This is a good option for suppliers who prefer to exchange flat files using a variety of flat-file formats, including CSV, TAB, PIPE and even XLS. Simply follow our Rithum Data Schema guide to build a file that matches our specifications and set up an automated job within the platform to schedule the processing of the files at the appropriate times. You can also run the job manually at any time using the Upload File option.

Create an invoice using the Rithum API

Very Difficult

This is a good option for suppliers who have programmers on staff who are experienced with REST APIs. This is a very advanced and technical option as your programmers will be creating custom scripts that will interact with your system and Rithum in a programmatic way.

For more information on the API option, see Getting Started with the Rithum API.

Create an invoice using EDI

Very Difficult

This is a good option for suppliers who currently utilize 810 Invoice EDI documents over SFTP and AS2 to create invoices. This option is perfect for you if you already utilize EDI in your drop-shipping operations but wish to remove the VAN from the equation. If you do not currently utilize EDI, we strongly recommend using one of the above options.

For more information on integrating using EDI documents, see Using EDI.
