What is e-invoicing?
It exchanges invoices from software-to-software
Peppol e-invoicing enables organisations to send and receive invoices electronically, directly from the supplier’s accounting software, to that of the customer. It removes the need for unnecessary data entry.
Think of it like a phone network. It just works.
E-invoicing happens through a four-corner model, where corners one and four are the supplier and customer, and corners two and three are Access Points. Access Points connect to each other to exchange e-invoices. You can think of it like a telephone network – your phone and your friend’s phone are corners one and four, and your network provider (like Telstra, Optus or Vodafone) are corners two and three.
It’s easy to get started if you’re a MYOB user
E-invoicing through MessageXchange is easy. Once you’ve registered, just raise the invoice in MYOB as usual and send the e-invoice. We’ll deliver it through the Peppol network to your customer. And if we receive an e-invoice for you from a supplier, we’ll deliver it straight to your In Tray.
Why use e-invoicing?
Get paid faster
E-invoices are proven to be paid faster than regular invoices. Plus, eligible suppliers to Government can be paid in 5 days!
Save time and money
The ATO has found processing an e-invoice is just a third of the cost of a PDF invoice. And it takes just a fraction of the time.
It’s more secure
E-invoicing is facilitated through a secure network, so you don’t have to worry about fraudulent invoices.

Getting started it easy
1. Sign up to e-invoicing through MessageXchange

2. Raise your invoice in MYOB
Raise your invoice as usual in MYOB. If your customer is on the Peppol network, just press the button to send the e-invoice. We’ll receive this invoice from MYOB and deliver it to your customer’s software.
3. We’ll notify you if something comes back
If your invoice can’t get through for any reason, we’ll let you know. And if your customer sends response messages, to let you know it’s being reviewed, accepted, paid or something else, you’ll get an email!

5. Login to see your balance, to top up and more
Login to your MessageXchange portal to see all the e-invoices you’ve sent and received, and how much data each one has used. Plus, you can check your credit balance, top up your credits and more.
Your first month is on us! Take the time to familiarise yourself with the product and e-invoicing in general. Then, if you’re not happy with it, just cancel.
After that, there are two components to e-invoicing billing:
1. Annual subscription to MessageXchange’s e-invoicing Access Point ($50)
This is a yearly subscription which allows you to access the e-invoicing service.
2. Credits ($50 for 1,000 credits)
Credits are charged at $50 for 1,000 credits. 1 credit is 10kb, or part thereof, of data.
For your reference, and this is a guide only:
- an average e-invoice with one line item is about 5kb
- an average e-invoice with two line items is about 6kb
- an average e-invoice with ten line items is about 15kb
So here are some scenarios:
- You send an e-invoice that’s 12kb. This will consume 2 credits.
- You send an e-invoice that’s 15kb with an attachment that’s 7kb. This will consume 3 credits.
- You receive an e-invoice that’s 9kb. This will consume 1 credit.
- You receive an e-invoice that’s 12kb with an attachment that’s 8kb. This will consume 2 credits.
