Document type without COGS / Inventory Movements

Hello All,

What SD document type can i use to invoice a customer for this scenario.

We sell products to a customer (essentially another company). That customer sells those products to his customers at a higher price. Our company needs to get a part of those profits. The amount is accrued over a period and then billed. This needs to be reported as Gross sales in our company. What order type should i start with? No inventory movement or COGS is in the picture.

Thanks

    One major challenge, which I see in your process, is that you do not have information in your system about the sales, which your distributor made to end customers.

    You need somehow to get reliable information on that, because it serves as business volume basis to calculate how much the distributor owes you and be able to accrue over certain period.

    If I were tasked with such scenario, I would take a look at condition contract functionality. It seems to be possible with it to use external data sources to determine business volume and post accruals.

    Thanks. Capturing the sales is not an issue. The customer will provide that proactively. I need to know what order type and billing type will i need to use?

    Regards
