Hi Gurus

Can you please help me with the following scenario?

The scenario is "Prepay invoice". First , a sales deal is created and the customer pays the entire amount upfront. After that, when a sales order is created with reference to that sales deal, it should have an invoice posted to that sales order (in order to complete order to cash cycle). Our requirements are the following two.

a) How to generate an invoice against a sales deal so that customer can pay against it ?

b) How to set up the "special invoice" against the Sales Order? (this "special invoice" will be just a document to complete the order to cash cycle, however, it should NOT trigger the payment activities, since customer has paid already against the sales deal)

There is probably some misunderstanding of SAP terminology.

Sales deals in SAP are created with transaction VB21 and are basically a way to maintain special pricing conditions linked to a promotion. There are no quantities in it and quite often the conditions do not refer explicitly to specific products, you may have for example a couple of percentage-based discounts on customer and product hierarchy, which means that you do not have enough information to create an invoice and request advance payment.

There are already standard processes for down payment/advance payment/contracts in SAP.

What is the reason why these are not acceptable for the client?
