Question: Why would we even consider having a PEPPOL Access Point (AP)?
- The possibility to reach many thousands of already connected business entities across Europe. As of year-end 2016 more than 72900 parties can receive electronic business documents through the PEPPOL network.
- By having your own PEPPOL Access Point you don't need to worry about establishing roaming agreements with other AP service providers. This is already taken care of by you (and them) signing the Transport Infrastructure Agreement which prohibits AP providers to charge for business documents exchanged with other APs. AP service providers are only allowed to charge their own customers, not other APs.
