Obtain authentication keys from Sovos
To integrate with Sovos, you must register with the Sovos platform and obtain authentication keys to gain access to Sovos e-invoicing services.
Follow the Sovos eInvoice Registration process to generate authentication keys, including an API key and a secret key. These keys are used in sending requests and engaging with Sovos API’s endpoints. Additionally, you have to use the authentication keys when configuring Sovos as your e-invoicing service provider in Zuora.
Certain countries have specific requirements for e-invoicing.
If you are a business provider selling products or services to public sector companies or other businesses in India, you must comply with the e-invoicing requirements. In India, e-invoice files for billing documents are electronically authenticated by the Goods and Service Tax Network (GSTN) portal. Under the electronic invoicing system, an identification number and a QR code are issued against each billing document by the Invoice Registration Portal (IRP), managed by GSTN.
Therefore, you must complete the following tasks to meet the following e-invoicing requirements:
- Obtain GSTIN and IRP API credentials
You register with the GSTN e-invoicing portal to obtain valid Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN) and IRP API credentials. For more information, see the Sovos eInvoice Registration process.
- Configure e-invoicing in Sovos for India
You must follow the Sovos eInvoice Configuration steps to register your company and branches. The configuration requires GSTIN and IRP API credentials that you have obtained.
