Invoicing Questions

There are multiple ways you can submit invoices to Intel whether electronic or paper. However, the preferred method is electronic. Please talk to our Purchasing representative to decide the most cost effective method from the options below, to contact a Purchasing representative please submit a request ticket to Production Support.

Invoice Submission Options:

  • Electronic Invoice
  • Web Invoice, whereby invoices are submitted via the Supplier.intel.com through the Web Invoice. (A walkthrough of the steps to submit electronic invoices can be found in the Web Invoicing Walkthrough document.)
    Ariba invoice, whereby invoices are submitted via the Ariba Network. (A walkthrough of the steps to submit electronic invoices can be found on page 53 of the Supplier Guide.)
  • Paper invoice, whereby hardcopy invoices are sent to the address stated in the PO to Intel Accounts Payable, and then it will take a few more days for Intel Accounts Payable to enter the invoice into Intel System.
  • Evaluated Receipt Settlement (ERS), whereby invoices are automatically generated upon goods received; it is only applicable to certain countries/goods purchase.
  • Consignment, whereby invoices are automatically generated when Intel consumes consigned goods.
  • Extensible Markup Language (XML), where supplier’s system will interface with Intel system directly through RosettaNet.

You should have received an invoice rejection notification either through email, fax, mail, or by logging into the Ariba Network. The notification explains what the rejection reason is. Once you have rectified the invoice, you can resubmit the invoice to Intel Accounts Payable.

If you have signed up for Intel’s Early Pay Program, you can utilize that process to request a shorter payment term.

Payment Questions

Use either the Intel® Payment Tracker tool or the Ariba Network to look up and view the details of a payment. Track payments in the system where the invoice was submitted. Refer to Intel® Payment Tracker Training or Ariba Network for additional information.

First, you need to register with the Intel® WebSuite application. You will need three important pieces of information before you can start the registration process. Those three pieces of information are:

1)

Supplier Number

This is a 10-digit identification number provided by Intel to all suppliers. If you do not know this number or if you are unsure of the number, you can submit a request ticket to Production Support here to obtain your Supplier Number.

 

2)

DUNS Number

This is a 9-digit number that is recognized as a universal standard for identifying companies worldwide. If you do not know this number for your local company office, contact Dun & Bradstreet directly to determine your D-U-N-S Number, or request a D&B D-U-N-S® Number using a process only for Intel suppliers and trading partners.

See an overview of Intel's transition to the Ariba Network, samples of the onboarding emails your company is likely to receive, and to access the Ariba Learning Center for training about registering on the Ariba Network.

If you are unable to locate an invoice, the invoice has either yet to be received by Intel, or the invoice falls outside of the 180-day invoice display threshold. For additional details about a specific invoice, you can submit a request ticket to the Production Support.

It may take some time to receive the money after Intel executes the payment, as it depends on the bank processing time. Please submit a request ticket to the Production Support for help, if you haven’t received it by four days after the payment date.

The payment is released by Intel once the agreed payment terms are reached. Please consider that payment terms are calculated from the later of the following: actual delivery date when goods are received by Intel; OR the date a valid invoice is received at Intel Accounts Payable.

All invoices are subject to certain validations before being approved for payment. You may refer to either Intel® Payment Tracker or the Ariba Network for invoice status or submit a request ticket to the Production Support for help.

  • For those transactions processing through the Ariba Network, Intel generates remittances that can be viewed by logging into the Ariba Network.
  • For those transactions NOT processing through the Ariba Network, Intel does not generate remittance advice but you may refer to Intel® Payment Tracker to reconcile the payment. If you have special need to obtain bank confirmation, please contact Production Support.

Please ensure you keep Intel informed promptly when you have bank information updates by submitting a request ticket to the APPO Support here. Failing to update your bank information in Intel's database will result in your payment being rejected and a delay in you receiving payment.

If you are uncertain what your current bank information is in Intel's database, please contact APPO Support for your region, Contact Us, for assistance.
