Freegoods(A+B=C)

Hi,

In Free goods scenario....

EX : if Customer Orders A+B(Materials) then C(Material) should be Free.

If the above said is possible in standard SAP, how can we Map this. if not is there is any other way to meet this Client requirement.

    Hi,

    As per my understanding this is not possible directly n SAP SD.

    one option is you may create a new material code and consider it as A+B, then you can give C as free goods.

    Regds,

    Hi

    There are restricitons for free goods functionality. The free goods can be offered only as 1:1 but not possible as 1:2 or 2:1 combinations. There are many other restrictions like SD document category should be C...etc., Please make a small search in the forum and you can find many threads clearly explaining the above.

    Thanks,

    Ravi

    Hi

    Constraints of Free goods in R3

    Free goods can only be supported on a 1:1 ratio. This means that an order item can lead to a free goods item. Agreements in the following form are not supported: u2018With material 1, material 2 and material 3 are free of chargeu2018 or u2018If material 1 and material 2 are ordered at the same time, then material 3 is free of chargeu2018.

    Free goods are not supported in combinations with material structures (for example, product selection, BOM, variants with BOM explosion).

    Free goods are only supported for sales orders with document category C (for example, not quotations).

    Free goods are not supported for deliveries without reference to a sales order.

    Free goods cannot be used in make-to-order production, third-party order processing and scheduling agreements.

    If you defined a free goods for variants in a generic article (only SAP Retail), you can only process the variants in the purchase order and goods receipt individually (as single articles). In other words, you cannot process them using the generic article matrix.

    These are Taken from SAP library and answers your query

    But With IS Retail bouns buy schemes this is possible

    Regards

    Hi Lakshmi,

    This functionality is not available in the standard system.

    In Retail, that's supposed to be called "bonus buy" but I did not evaluate it (none of my Consulting Customers has licensed SAP Retail).

    Solution: You might first create the sales order as blocked for delivery, run a custom program (Z*) that looks for items that should be offered to the customers and switch them automatically to free goods, before releasing the sales order to delivery.

    The special free goods condition should be also maintained as a development (Z table).

    Regards,

    Franck
