Many commercially available accounting and ERP systems already have built-in access point capabilities that you can activate, by contacting your software provider.
You can also purchase a connection agreement from an access point provider.

If you do not find the recipient in ELMA then go to Peppol Dirctory for all SMP's in the Peppol network.
