API interface in E-Way Bill

What is E-way Bill API Interface 


API interface is a site-to-site integration of two systems. Using this, the taxpayer can link his IT system with E-Way Bill system to generate E-Way Bill directly from his IT solution without keying in the details for E-Way Bill form in the Portal. This reduces duplicate data entry and eliminates the data entry mistakes. 

Taxpayers or Transporters can Integrate E-Way Bill API within their accounting, ERP Systems or self-service waybill portals. This API interface facilitates the tax payers or transporters to enable their automated system to call the EWB system to generate, update and pull the data related to their e-way bills. 

Benefits of API Interface are presently registered person generates invoices from his IT system and logs into EWB system and enters E-Way Bill details and generate E-Way Bills. Here, the taxpayer has to make double entries, once for Invoice generation in his system and second time for E-Way Bill generation. He can integrate his system with EWB system through API. The EWB details are sent from taxpayer system to E-Way Bill system through APIs and generation of E-Way Bill happens at E-Way Bill system instantaneously. The E-Way Bill data is send back to the taxpayer system by the E-Way Bill system so that EWB data can be stored in the taxpayers’ system itself. This will lead saving of manpower and cost of operator for this purpose. Secondly API interface will eliminate data entry mistakes/errors being made by operator. It also saves time. Thirdly E-Way Bill number can be stored by the taxpayer system in his database with the corresponding invoice. Even in the invoice itself, EWB number can be printed so that printout of EWB need not be taken out and carried out along with the vehicle, separately. 

API interface is a site-to-site integration of website of taxpayer with the EWB system. API interface can be used by large taxpayers, who need to generate more than 1000 invoices / e-way bills per day. However, the taxpayer should meet the following criteria to use the API interface:

 His invoicing system should be automated with IT solutions.

 He should be ready to change his IT system to integrate with EWB system as per API guidelines.

 He should be generating at least 1000 invoices/e-way bills per day.

 His system should have SSL based domain name.

 His system should have Static IP Address.

 He should have pre-production system to test the API interface.
