2716117 - Sales Kits Are Not Supported in Point-of-Sales Transactions


You want to create a Point-of-Sale Transaction with a Sales Kit item, however, this is not possible.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

You create a Sales Transaction via the web service PointOfSaleTransactionProcessingPointOfSaleTransactionIn using a Sales Kit.

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Select the Point-of-Sale Transactions view and the Sales Transactions sub view.
  3. The newly created Sales Transaction is in status Inconsistent.
  4. Click on the Check button
  5. The following errors are displayed:
  • Sales Item XY - A:  Type of product  not valid (where XY is the ID of the Sales Transaction and A the line item).
  • Sales Item XY - A:  The product ABC has the logistics status Initial or In Preparation (where ABC is the ID of the Sales Kit).
  • Sales Item XY - A:  The product ABC in the planning area XYZ has the planning status Initial or In Preparation (where XYZ is the ID of Planning Area).


The PointOfSaleTransactionProcessingPointOfSaleTransactionIn, when you create a Point Of Sales Transaction (Inventory Material), it's necessary to pass Site ID and Logisticas Area ID. So, for a Sales Kit this would not be possible, because the sub items could have different LogisticsAreaID. 


As a possible solution for this scenario, you can add each sub item of Sales Kit seperately to the POS (Point-Of-Sales) transaction.
