A Purchase Order Response may refer to goods items or services related to one or more delivery schedules, calloffs, etc. This transaction for cross-border transactions may contain additional information for customs and/or statistical purposes, details for transport, destination and delivery.

This document indicates the supplier’s acceptance of all, or part, or none of the buyer’s order. Any changes may be requested by the supplier to fulfil the order. Any change requested by the supplier to a Purchase Order may be acknowledged by the buyer by transmitting a new Purchase Order or a Purchase Order Change Request.
