Getting started


Transactions are the core of trading with Orderful. A transaction represents an EDI message sent from one trading partner to another.

Here you'll find information outlining the data structure of the various EDI documents supported by Orderful.

Transaction Data Structure

Transactions sent via Orderful are JSON representations of X12 EDI documents.

In our JSON versions of these EDI documents, objects have taken the place of EDI segments and arrays have replaced loops. If you're used to trading X12 EDI documents, we've indicated the segment and element identifiers alongside the JSON property names in our documentation to guide you.
