What is eBill? General Information
eBill is an electronic invoicing format that allows you to enter invoices (debtors) into the customer's e-banking. Your customer can handle the payment of your invoice conveniently, directly from their banking platform. The integration InvoCLOUD enables you to send the eBill - the reconciliation of the subsequent transaction with the invoice, as before, takes place "manually" via the banking module in bexio. However, it is not possible to receive eBill in the opposite format, as an electronic invoice format in bexio. The InvoCLOUD customer portal is available in multiple languages (DE, FR, EN, IT).
How do I link the integration?
1. Add the App
You can search for the application via our App Marketplace (https://www.bexio.com/marketplace). Click «Add APP».
You'll be forwarded to the bexio login page so you can log in with your user data.
Access to the data listed below is required, in order to register the bexio client with SIX, as an issuer of bills; also to transmit invoices to SIX on behalf of the bexio client, so that the invoices can be displayed in the eBanking platform of the contact's bank (invoice recipient). (If further authorizations are needed in the future (For example, during the expansion of eBill services), the bexio customer will be asked to confirm access again.)
To register, select the industry closest to the bexio client's commercial activities. A multiple selection is permitted. The data is transmitted to SIX and serves to make it easier for bexio customers to be found by their contacts (invoice recipients).
3. Paying Invoice
The invoicing party has three packages, each with a different number of invoices, at their disposal. This can be purchased as a subscription. By submitting the order, an invoice is sent to the bexio customer. If the bexio customer is already an eBill participant (in the role of invoice recipient) and has accepted InvoCLOUD as eBill biller, an eBill invoice from InvoCLOUD will be sent to him/her, otherwise, a QR invoice will be sent to him/her in the form of a PDF via e-mail:
4. Activation Successful
Only once InvoCLOUD receives the invoice amount for the selected package, will the eBill /ZUGFeRD function in bexio be activated. In order to be enabled to send the order, the bexio customer must accept the Declaration Of Delegation, the General Terms, and Conditions. A successful order is confirmed with a corresponding notification:
