Distribution Channel Vs Sales Document Type


Dear All,

I have a confusion over my configuration process. My customer has the following types of customers:

1) Distributors, 2)C&F, 3)Institutional Sales, 4)Modern Sales, 5)Employee Sales, 6)Scrap Sales, 7)Sale of raw materials and 8)Exports.

Now I have an option of either creating 8 distribution channels and maintain one Sales document type or I can define one Distribution channel and define 8 sales document types.

My requirement can be achieved by both means but I wish to know which would be a better approach. Whether creating multiple Distribution channels or creating multiple sales document types. Can you please suggest me a better method among the two with advantages and disadvantages if possible?

As far as pricing condition records are concerned, I anyways have to maintain in the key combination either sales document type or distribution channel. So i am a little confused over which is a better approach
