Who needs to confirm an event?
In Yordex all payments are linked to events.
‘Confirming’ an event means confirming that the event has happened.
The Smart PO terms specify who needs to confirm an event. Options are:
- ‘Buyer’, e.g. ‘Goods received’ would be an event a buyer should confirm
- ‘Seller’, e.g. ‘Goods ready for shipping’ would be an event a supplier should confirm
- ‘Buyer and Seller’, e.g. ‘Goods ready for shipping’ could be an event both buyer and supplier want to confirm. The supplier may have to upload proof for the buyer to review before confirming, e.g. an inspection report or a bill of lading. Which documents are required as proof should be agreed before approving the order and specified in the documents required for the event.
- ‘Automatic when the order is approved’, means the event will be automatically confirmed as soon as the order is approved. This can only be used for the first payment.
After the event is confirmed, the event status changes to ‘payment due’. An explanation of our event status model can be found in our online documentation.
