Beta v3 – Invoices

Please note that this documentation describes the beta version of our Retailer API version 3. This page is intended only for use by the partners participating in our beta testing program.

Endpoints can still be subject to change and support is limited in the beta phase.

 

Invoices

Bol.com uses a monthly ‘All in one’ invoicing system. The first day of the month we create the ‘All-in-one’ invoice for partners to retrieve.

We use three different invoice endpoints, each returning a different level of specification:

 

1. Invoices

Returns the available invoice including invoice id and minimal summary of monetary totals.

2. Single invoice

Returns an invoice with summaries of the available line types.

3. Invoice specification

Returns all transactions for a specific invoice.

 

Step 1 is necessary in order to retrieve the invoice id. After that you can choose to proceed to steps 2, 3 or just one of these based on the requirements of your financial management system.

 

Note: Please refer to Appendix A for a list of Invoice line types, as the new All-In-One invoice can consist of over 16 different Invoice line types.
