An e-invoice transaction payment will be charged for each purchase invoice imported to Netvisor via API.

Attachments can also be imported for purchase invoice. Purchase invoice attachments have to be in PDF-format.

InvoiceSource must be finvoice to import an attachment.

During the import vendor card is created if vendor is missing from Netvisor. When importing, the vendor is focused to existing vendor by following rules:

  1. Focus on existing vendor if account number and name matches with the invoice and VAT number is the same as on invoice
  2. Focus on existing vendor if account number matches with the invoice and VAT number is the same as on invoice
  3. Focus on existing vendor if account number and name matches with the invoice
  4. Focus on existing vendor if name matches with the invoice and VAT number is the same as on invoice
  5. Focus on existing vendor if account number matches with the invoice and VAT number is empty
  6. Focus on existing vendor if account number matches with the invoice
  7. Focus on existing vendor if VAT number is the same as on invoice
  8. Focus on existing vendor if name matches with the invoice

If non of the above applies, new vendor is created.
