Ariba Network Standard Account

What is Ariba Network Standard Account?

An Ariba Network Standard Account is a fast and easy way for your company to receive orders, confirm orders and quickly flip them to invoices. Transacting on Ariba Network with a FREE Standard Account will allow you to receive purchase orders interactively through the Ariba Network via email as well as transmit invoices. 



What’s Changing?

Below are examples of As Is processes for currently transacting with AusNet Services as well as the To Be for transacting with us in the future:


I already have an existing Ariba Network account…

If you have an existing Ariba standard account which you use to transact with other Ariba customers, you can use this account to transact with AusNet Services. To establish this relationship, you will need to receive your initial purchase order from AusNet Services via interactive email. You will need to select Process Order and then log in using your existing standard account credentials. This will automatically establish a relationship with AusNet Services to transact via Ariba Network going forward.

Important: If you have an existing enterprise account which you use to transact with other customers, then you will need to register and generate a new Ariba Network ID (ANID) to transact with AusNet Services via standard account.   

How to register on the Ariba Network:

The process for registration is very simple & quick. When you receive a purchase order through the Ariba Network interactively via email for the first time, you will need to register your company to generate an Ariba Network ID. 

An Ariba Network Identification (ANID) number is a unique identifier of an Ariba Network account:

  1. Open the document and select Process Order.
  2. To create a standard account, select Sign Up
  3. Populate all fields on the webpage
  4. Review the Terms of Use and the Ariba Privacy Statement and select the checkbox
  5. Select Register
    • You are now registered to transact over the Ariba Network
    • You can now view the transacted purchase order and submit an electronic invoice online.
    • The next time you receive an interactive PO, you will login to your Ariba Network account where you can process the order. 


We will continue to reach out to you to prepare for the upcoming changes. Please note that going forward, this will be the standard method of doing business with AusNet Services moving forward.

Important: You will be receiving email communication from AusNet Services regarding this transition. This communication will provide further detail on how to register and navigate through Ariba Network . We also recommend bookmarking the link to this webpage as it will be updated regularly to inform you as the supplier with necessary information.
