EDI 875 Purchase Orders for Grocery Products

The EDI 875 transaction set is a Grocery Products Purchase Order. This is the electronic form of a paper PO, used specifically by grocery wholesalers and retailers for the placement of orders for finished goods from their suppliers. Like the 850 Purchase Order, the 875 transaction includes all of the information required for the order, such as:
  • Item description including units or other basis of measurement
  • Item quantity to be delivered
  • Price and total cost
  • Shipping instructions
The 875 PO is not to be used for purchase order changes or acknowledgments. The 860 Purchase Order Change Request is used to submit changes to a previously sent PO. Following receipt of an 875, a supplier should transmit an 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgment to the trading partner to confirm the PO was successfully received.
