How to apply different payment method for mutiple outgoing payment recipients in FS-CD

Hi experts,

In FS-CD, insurance object(catg. commission contract), in the tab Collections/Disbursements:

there is a checkbox - "Mutiple Alt. Payment Recipients" in the outgoing payments section.

But there is only 1 payment method can be filled. our customer want to specify different payment method for each recipients, is there any way to do that?

currently we are thinking 2 ways, one is to find some place to enhance the Insurance object editing, the other way is to try to split the many recipients to different IO when doing settlement, this also needs to find some enhance place. what do you think ?

Thnaks,

Huai Zhi

    Hi,

    Multiple Alt. Payment Recipients check box is used for credit splitting and is utilized by mass activity transaction VAZE (SAPLFKKAKTIV2). Usually VAZE is executed before running payment programs to split credit item with Multiple Alternate Payment Recipients so that the clearing doc contains a BP item for each of the multiple recipients.

    This is helpful while disbursing a single amount (say a claim amount) between multiple recipients. If this is what you want then you can activate this to fulfill customer requirement without making any enhancements at IO level.

    In FSCD, at CA and IO level only 1 payment method can be filled as part of standard functionality but you can define several payment methods which can be selected (by bank / card/ draft / check etc) and this is utilized downstream during payment processing, processing refunds/ returns, reporting etc. So making any enhancements out here is not recommended. And SAP shall probably not support any requests pertaining to such customer enhancements in case of issues.

    Splitting many recipients to different IO when doing settlement will impact mass processing programs in terms of performance in the long run and give rise to unnecessary maintenance of data. This is also not recommended.

    Thanks

    Hi Harry,

    Probably you can consider Logical tool ( settlement CD ) with custom ( Z * or Y* ) function module getting triggered during settlement from ICM point of view.

    Different payment methods can be defined while making the payment using FPY1 transactions.
