181 Return Auth Request

Purpose

 

The EASI 181 is an electronic Return Authorization Response that is exchanged between trading partners.  The EASI 181 Return Authorization Response is sent by the seller to the purchaser with instructions on the return goods previously requested by a 180 Return Authorization Request.  It is a similar business process as faxing or emailing, just a different and more efficient communication method.  Some of the benefits associated with the use of the EASI 181 Return Authorization Request are:

 

 

  1. Make it easier to process return authorizations by creating a standardized electronic form.

  2. Contains information regarding items, quantities and prices (optional) authorized on the return.  

  3. Maintain simplicity but increase automation.

  4. Provides Return Delivery Instructions, including Address, Carrier and Service Level.

  5. Eliminates re-keying of returns/claims.

  6. Eliminates data entry errors.

  7. Improved return authorization turnaround time.
