Goodwill order details

goodwill are intangible items then what is the difference between creating a goodwill order with and without material.

How is a goodwill order created without material and what is basic significance for the same.

I need a clear explanation from the order and accounting point of view as this is confusing me a lot.

    Dear Arnima,

    Iam just giving my view try this ..

    You just create material for Goodwill with Service material type LEIS -Service w/o Delivery.

    Define the Goodwill sales document type through copying the Standard OR

    Define the Goodwill Billing document type through copying standard billing type F1(Copy the copy control settings also)

    Maintain the itemcategory settings through VOV4 transaction for the combination

    Goodwill sales document type+LEIS---->Service itemcategory(TAD is the standard)

    If you want you can define the New peicing procedure and you can determine that with new Goodwill document pricing procedure through this IMGpath

    IMG>Sales and Distribution>Basic functions>Pricing>pricing control

    Define Condition Tables

    Define Condition Types

    Define Access Sequences

    Define And Assign Pricing Procedures

    You do the proper G/L accounts assignment for the Good will sales through VKOA transaction

    Now you can create sales order for that Goodwill material you can enter price manually in the sales order or you can maintain condition record to get automatic pricing.

    After creation of the delivery you create billing with refrence to the order no need to create delivery because material is intangible.

    I hope this will help you,

      Thanks again for your reply.

      Can you just clear my below doubt..

      Does goodwill orders include a scenario where a particular product like suppose a kit is given free of cost to customers?if yes is it for a particulat customer or any regular customer.How is it decided.

      How is a particular material customized in SAP or chosen for a goodwill order?

      because i just created a goodwill order where the system prompted saying only material x and y can be used .

      Please explain.
