ion-SMP | Frequently Asked Questions

What is an SMP?

Service Metadata Publishers (SMPs) play a role in the publication and lookup of trading entities (‘participants’) on the PEPPOL network, by publishing information about where they can be reached, and what electronic business processes and document types they support.

What’s Peppol?

The Pan-European Public Procurement On-Line (PEPPOL) project is a European project to enable businesses to communicate electronically with each other and with public institutions in Europe in their procurement process. For more information, see the PEPPOL website.

How do I sign up?

You can sign up for free here.

Free accounts get full access to the web interface and the API, but cannot publish any participants on the Peppol Production network, and only a single identifier to the Peppol Test network.

You can change a free account to a business or enterprise account after signing up.

What about business accounts?

You can transfer from a free to a paid account after registering. Due to Know-your-customer requirements, we’ll need to verify your business and contact details. Information on these steps, as well as pricing information is available upon request.
