Pricing Structure

This field indicates how the supplier can respond to a line item. Select one of the following pricing structures:

  • Unit Price: Select this option for the supplier to enter a unit price value or calculate a unit price by formula. For more information on formulas, see RFx Formula.

  • Unit Price Components: Specify the components for unit price. For example, you might specify components for base price, duty, and delivery.

    In the RFx response, the supplier will enter prices for each component and the system will calculate the unit price as the total of the component prices.

  • Tiered Pricing: If you select this option, you must specify quantity ranges in Quantity Price Schedule field on the Line Items page. In the RFx response, the supplier enters prices for each quantity range.

    For more information, see Specifying Tiered Pricing for RFx Line Items.

    Note Note

    Integrated documents are simplified and support only the unit price model in conjunction with price conditions, which provide a similar functionality to the three pricing structures described above. For more information about integrated documents see Integration with SAP ERP.
