Coupa Success Portal

Invalid credentials

The supplier sent an invoice that is being rejected because credentials used to connect to Coupa are incorrect.

How do I fix it?

Try the following:

  • Make sure the supplier is using the right credentials to connect to Coupa. 
  • Make sure cXML invoicing is enabled for the supplier (Allow cXML Invoicing and Advance Ship Noticing under Invoicing on the Setup > Suppliers > Suppliers > Edit Supplier screen).
