SAP Supplier Portal

SAP Business Network

Welcome to the SAP Supplier Portal SAP Business Network page. This page provides information for all suppliers that are conducting business with SAP through SAP Business Network – a secure, global platform where buyers and suppliers can collaborate on business transactions, and manage Purchase Orders (POs), Invoices and Catalogs.

SAP migrated to SAP Business Network for all electronic transaction processing. As part of this migration, SAP sends all POs to Suppliers using SAP Business Network and requests that Vendors submit their invoices to SAP using SAP Business Network.


Currently, SAP is using SAP Business Network in 23 countries. If you are not located in one of these countries, please refer to the FAQ section below for more instructions.

Additional Services


In addition to SAP Ariba purchase orders and invoices, the supplier has an option to upload a catalog file on the SAP Business Network. The catalog file includes information about the provided items including images, detailed descriptions, delivery time, pricing, etc. Once a supplier uploads this catalog file to SAP Business Network, it is reviewed and activated. In case of any changes (e.g. price or availability) the supplier has to upload a changed catalog file.

SAP Business Network supports Catalog Interchange Format (CIF). A CIF file can be created with any word processor, text editor, or spreadsheet application.

Integration Solutions

If you have more than 500 invoices per year with SAP, the document exchange can be automated with an integration scenario. The implementation is made without specific IT infrastructure. The project lasts around three months with the assistance of your technical resource. A supplier integrator from SAP Ariba will support you during the whole process.
