Free goods instead of Credit Note for Rebate

Hi All,

I have a business requirement wherein Free Goods will be given to the customer instead of Cash/Credit Note if they were able to buy cetain amount of products for a specific period of time. For example,

Volume-based:

If customers bought 10 boxes of product A and 5 boxes of product B over a certain period of time, he gets a free goods of 1 Box of A or 1 Box of B.

Value-based:

If customers bought $1,000 worth of product A and $500 worth product B over a certain period of time, he gets a free goods of 1 Box of A or 1 Box of B.

I know that the Rebates Processing functionality of SAP only allows credit note as settlement. However, I would like to seek inputs from you in case you have met such requirements before.

Thanks!

    You can also think about developing a custom report to handle this requirement. The selection screen can have both the options 'Volume-based' and 'Value-based' with radio buttons so that the same report can be used for both. Based on your need...customer based or material based...with details in the input screen...the report program will do the calculations for the given period and will display the eligible quantities of free goods for the customer. The report output should have an Execute Icon on the Application tool bar for creating the Order for free goods. User can select the line items (check box) and click on the execute icon. Then the Order for free goods should be created in the back ground and display the order numbers as log in the next screen. You can design the input/output screens and processing logic based on the exact requirement.

      I suppose custom solution is the only way to go for this requirement. Your suggestion is definitely helpful. Thanks!

    May be you can explore Quantity Contract and Value Contracts functionality.  Once the set target is achieved, then you can generate Subsequent Delivery Free of Charge with document type FD
