E-invoice API integration for banking and financial platforms

E-invoicing API integration can unlock additional revenue streams and help neobanks and financial platforms take another step towards becoming true Super Apps.

What is e-invoicing?

Electronic invoicing (also known as E-invoicing) is a form of invoicing, when the client is presented not with a paper or scanned invoice but with an E-invoice.

An e invoice follows a predefined, standardized format. All data (e.g. PO number, VAT number, and so on) is provided in a structured way, and the e invoice can be automatically imported and processed by the purchasing organization’s AP system. E-invoicing systems commonly use electronic data interchange (EDI) and XML formats to make data exchange easier.

While e invoicing itself has been on the market for at least 30 years, its adoption varies from market to market. For example, across the European Union, E-invoicing has been standardized since 2020.

  • Mitigate the risks associated with fraud and tax leakage
  • Save money and resources that would be wasted on manual invoicing
  • Reduce invoice mismatches
  • Unlock additional benefits like easy tax claims
