RE:[sap-log-sd] Accrual without Rebate Agreement

I can't see SAP providing anything remotely like the business scenario you've mentioned. Dutch's suggestions might be about as close as you could get, but then how would you stop the next sale being used against credit from accruing more against the "funds"?

Additionally I have issues with the whole process; sales of some materials accrue to funds which can then mean free sales of totally unrelated materials. I'm not sure if your client tracks material profitability, but you won't get accurate with the process described.

I can't even see how this might even be achieved with an incredibly complex development.

I look forward to anyone else's contributions.

I encountered with the business scenario like this:

1) For buying products from the client, customers accrue Fund-1 at the rate of 5% and Fund-2 at the rate of 10%. So, after buying material X for $100, Fund-1 balance is $5 and Fund - 2 balance is $10 for customer Y. Customers can buy any materials and earn the fund.

2) Later, customers can place orders and use the fund to buy any materials they wish. So, in above scenario, customers can place orders for $12 worth of materials and use the Fund-1 fully ($5) and Fund-2 partially ($7) to pay for. Thus, Fund-1 is fully utilize and Fund-2 still has a positive balance of $3. Customer can request check for $3 to redeem the Fund-2 remaining balance.

3) Customers frequently make inquiries about the fund balances before placing the orders.

How to generate the accrual fund and expense the fund to buy materials later on?
