Control Free Goods Pricing

Control Pricing for Free Goods Item Category:

In the standard system, pricing for free goods is deactivated. In this


IMG activity, you could activate pricing with value 'B'. In this way, the
system determines a price which is then removed by a 100% discount
during the next IMG activities.
This helps to show the process of sales deduction in Controlling (CO-

PA).

No Pricing
Pricing Standard
Pricing for Empties

Maintain Condition Type for 100% discount: <V/06>

In this IMG activity, you can create a new condition type. It serves as a
100% discount in the following IMG activity for maintaining pricing
procedures. This is why you should define the condition type as a
discount in per cent. The standard system contains condition type
R100 for this purpose.

Maintain Pricing Procedure for Pricing: <V/08>

In this IMG activity, you configure the condition that you have defined
in the previous activity as a 100% discount in the required pricing
procedure.
You assign requirement 55 (free goods) to the condition so that it is
only used for free goods.
Furthermore, you enter condition base value '028' so that you do not
need a condition record for this condition type.
In the standard system, pricing procedure RVAA01 has been
configured with condition type R100 as an example.

Pricing for Inclusive Free Goods Without Item Generation

If you have selected free goods category 3 (inclusive free goods


without item generation) in the free goods master record, the system
will not generate items for the free goods. In this case, the correct
discount is determined in pricing for the main item.
To do this, you can use the standard condition type NRAB. It is set up
as follows:
It does not determine the discount from the condition record. It
uses condition basis formula 029 in the pricing procedure to
determine a discount from the free goods factor.
The condition receives the new pricing requirement 059 in the
pricing procedure. This requirement checks whether free goods
have already been determined.
The condition type receives condition category f. This condition
category ensures that the condition is redetermined every time
the quantity is changed, since this can also mean a change to
the free goods quantity.
