Medini is an accredited distributor of veterinary medicines and medical and paramedical equipment to the veterinary profession. They have about 7.000 articles in store for professional veterinary surgeons and animal hospitals. Many of these veterinary surgeons and animal hospitals receive their patients and owners, outside office hours. This implies that they have to order their supplies, late in the evening in order to receive them the next day. Most of them also do their business administration after office hours. To reduce the administrative impact for their customers and to ease payments, Medini decided to include the Payconiq QR code on their invoices. Medini uses SAP S/4HANA as enterprise application software. Together with Expertum, the integration between their SAP system and Payconiq was setup. To make the change visible to customers, the layout of the invoices was completely redone and given a modern look.
In close cooperation with Expertum we strive to streamline processes to improve the service to our customers continuously

How You Place a QR Code on Your Invoices
The integration takes only a few simple steps. Let’s run through them now.
Firstly, sign an agreement with Payconiq. Once done you will be setup as a merchant on the Payconiq platform to interact with the API endpoints. As part of this onboarding process, you will receive a generated merchant (shop) ID and API key.
Secondly import the Expertum Payconiq library on your SAP S/4HANA backend system. This ABAP class contains methods to generate the QR code URL using the Payconiq API embedding the invoice description, amount, and reference.
Sample payload URL:
D=Invoice%20Payment or D=OGM(Structured Remittance Enabled)
Last step is to customize your SAP Adobe Invoice Form to include an image object with the dynamic generated URL.
