1871107 - You Want to Maintain your Pricing Components Using a Fixed Amount Instead of a Percentage


You want to maintain your pricing components using a fixed amount instead of a percentage.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

In your sales document, such as a sales order you would like to maintain a product discount using a fixed amount.

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to the Implementation Projects view.
  3. Select the relevant project.
  4. Select Activity List
  5. Go to the Fine tune phase.
  6. Select and open the fine tuning activity Configure Price Strategy.

You are able to maintain the product discounts only in percentage for the Product Discount.


In the current version, it is possible to maintain the product discount only in percentages. In the fine tuning it is not possible to change the product discounts from percentage to fixed amount.


It is however possible to select fixed amount for the Overall Discount. It is not possible to mixed both options (fixed amount and percentage) in your sales documents, only one selection is supported at a time.

Please note that once the Overall Discount is used, it cannot be changed anymore.

However, with release 2008 we enabled a feature to Maintain Absolute and Percentage based Overall Discounts in ByD CRM.

You can enable this in your scoping in the Questions section under the Path General Business Data -> Product and Service Pricing -> Sales Price Specification

In the section Absolute and Percentage based Additional Overall Discounts you have to enable the Question:

Do you want additional discounts at document level

Once you activate this you can add an Additional Overall Discount with an absolute amount.
