 Pricing Scales 

Use

When you create a condition record for a pricing element, you can define a pricing scale. For example, a scale based on quantity can determine that the more a customer orders of a particular product, the lower the price. You can also create condition records with graduated scales. For further information, see

Pricing interval scales.

Scale Basis

In the standard system, a pricing scale can be based on any of the following criteria:

  • Value
  • Quantity
  • Gross weight
  • Net weight
  • Volume
  • A formula specific to your requirements

The scale basis is defined in Customizing for Sales for each condition type.

Creating Scales

The following procedure explains how to create a pricing scale for, as an example, a material price. You create pricing scales for other condition types in exactly the same way.

To create a pricing scale:

  1. Choose Goto
® Scales in the fast-entry screen of the condition record for a material price.
  • Enter a scale quantity and a rate.
  • To save the condition record, choose Save.
  • Specifying Scale Types

    In each condition record where you define a scale, you can further specify the scale type. The scale type determines whether the scale is a From-scale or a To-scale. For example, if you specify a From-scale that is based on quantity, the scale determines different prices based on different quantities. To change the scale type for a condition record, choose Goto

    ® Details. Specify the scale type you want to use.

    Special Feature of Calculating the Scale Base Value: Group Conditions

    In Customizing for Sales, you can define a condition type as a group condition. A group condition means, for example, that the system bases a discount on the combined quantities of more than one item in a sales document. The combined quantities may mean that the customer gets a better price than if the items were priced individually.
