Object documentationSales: Groupings


Technical name: CRMM_PR_SALESG

Set type allowing you to group products for various purposes. As this set type is dependent on distribution chains, a distribution chain has to be selected before data can be maintained.


The set type is evaluated when an order is created and in pricing.

It contains various fields for grouping purposes. They allow you to group together products in a simple manner and use them in various ways:

  • Pricing conditions (field Product Group)

  • Commission calculation (field Commission Group)

  • Volume rebate settlement (field Volume Rebate Group)

  • Revenue or sales deduction account determination (field Account Assignment Group)

  • Your own analyses (product groups 1 – 5)

  • A sales category can be specified for a particular distribution chain and used for specific purposes within applications such as pricing and trade promotions. However, certain applications such as partner/product ranges (PPRs) only interpret the organization-independent product category assignment.

    Note Note

    The sales category is not used in the same way as product categories, and does not influence the interface or other aspects of product maintenance. Settings made to this category on the Product Hierarchy page will not be effective on the Product page.
