credit control

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to do a credit check on the 'sold to' partner function instead of the 'bill to'?

    Hi Paul,

    In one word - No.

    As you must be aware the Payer is the one who is going to ACTUALLY Pay for whatever he has purchased and owes you.

    Sold to Party is just someone who will place the order and Bill To Party is the one who is the one who receives the Bill.

    Technically, the Credit Related Master Data is tied to Payer and Payer is the Partner Function which is in the Billing Document not Sold To Party. All the Customer Balances are tied to the Payer through the Billing Document.

    Many a times, it is the Sold To Party who is the Payer too.

    Hope this explanation helps.

    From my side, I am curios to know, what is the reasoning for asking such question ? 😭

      The reason for this question is the following. We use a specific sales flow for sales to another country. All these sales are invoiced to an intercompany (trading partner), but with the end customer as 'sold to'. In this case it makes sense to do a credit check on the sold to. A credit check on the bill to is then irrelevant.
