Use

When a sales document is created, the system automatically carries out pricing.

During billing you have the option to copy the prices from the sales document to the billing document or to have the system carry out pricing again. You can also trigger pricing manually.

Prerequisites

You define the pricing type in copying control. Controlling is carried out in SD Customizing via Billing ® Billing documents ® Maintain copying control for billing documents, Navigation Item, field: Pricing determination type.

Features

You can use the following pricing types when billing:

Taken from the standard settings:

The following figure shows how the pricing types function:

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text

The following section describes pricing types in more detail.

A: Copy pricing elements and update according to scale

With this pricing type, the system:

The system then uses these pricing elements to determine the valid prices, surcharges, and discounts based on the quantity to be invoiced.

If the delivery quantity differs from the order quantity, the system determines the price, surcharges and discounts on the basis of the delivery quantity based on the scales that are valid at the time of order entry.

Example

Invoice A. When an order was entered, the system used the January price list to determine a price of $9.00 per piece based on the rate for 20 pieces. At billing, the system uses the same price list, but uses the rate for 10 pieces (delivery quantity) to determine a price of $9.50 per piece.

B: Carry out new pricing

With this pricing type, the system:

For instance, the customer may be entitled to a special price after the sales order has been created. The system would then determine the relevant pricing element for this instance and find the valid price.

If the delivery quantity differs from the order quantity, the system determines the price, surcharges and discounts on the basis of the delivery quantity, according to the scales valid at the time of billing.

Example

Invoice B. At the time of billing, there is a new price list and a new discount for March. The system uses this price list with the rate for 10 pieces to determine a material price of $10.50 per piece. It also determines a 2% discount. The system does not copy the manual surcharge or discount into the billing document since it is carrying out new pricing. The surcharge or discount entered manually in the order is not copied to the billing document, since pricing is carried out again.

C: Copy manual pricing elements and redetermine the others

With this pricing type, the system:

In the standard system, this pricing type is determined for items in an invoice using billing type F1.

Example

Invoice C. As in invoice B, the system determines the new scale price of $10.50 per piece and copies the manually entered discount from the sales order into the invoice. Note: Customer loses quantity-based discount.

D: Copy pricing elements unchanged

With this pricing type, the system:

In the standard version of R/3, this pricing type is defined for items in credit and debit memos (billing document types G2 and L2).

Example

Invoice D. This time the system does not use the delivery quantity as basis for pricing. It merely copies the price of $9.00 per piece from the sales order. It also copies the manually entered discount. Note: Customer keeps quantity based discount.

E: Copy pricing elements and values unchanged

With this pricing type, the system:

Example

In invoice E, 20 units are invoiced, even if only 10 units are delivered.

In the standard system, this pricing type is determined for items in a cancellation.

F: Only used within the program

This pricing type is used within the program during processing of group conditions.

G: Copy pricing elements unchanged and redetermine taxes

With this pricing type, the system:

Taxes (condition class D)

Rebate (condition class C)

Intercompany billing conditions (condition category I)

Invoice list conditions (condition category R)

Condition types with condition category L

Cost conditions (condition category G)

Cash discount conditions (condition category E)

In the standard version of the SAP R/3 system, this pricing type is defined for invoices of billing type F2 as well as for pro forma invoices F5 and F8 .

H: Copy pricing elements and redetermine freight

With this pricing type, the system:

Freight conditions (condition category B, F)

Condition types with condition category L
