Activation of an In Advance product

Dear CC experts,

we have a scenario where we want to create a product that the MRC are generated in Advance. Meaning that if the contract is created on the 15th of January, on Activation 2 BITs should be created. One prorated BIT 15 - 31 January and one advance BIT 1-28 February. Then on the 1st of February, a BIT should be generated for March and so on.

Would the 'Prepaid Period Number' on the Advance tab on the Recurring Rate be an option?

Thank you,

Doris

Hi Doris,

Yes, the checkbox labelled "Prepaid period number" is meant to compute the fee for several periods in advance.
The official documentation for this is given in Core tool's reference, in section "Recurring rate":
https://help.sap.com/docs/Convergent_Charging/95b76ba4f60b42cdbf0ff25f790538c5/c5fa314e1bd7445995c2a...

We also have more detailed explanations in SAP note 2652287 ("Recurring fees in SAP Convergent Charging").
This note contains a PDF attachment, and this topic is addressed page 20 (there's an example with two periods charged in advance).

Can you please read these documents and let us know if you need more details?

Best regards.

Hi François,

as always you are very informative, precise, and very helpful. After setting the "Prepaid period number" to value 1 we could achieve what we wanted and on each of the 1st of the month X, a full MRC of the month X+1 was generated.

Thanks a lot for the help, the links and the documentation was very helpful.

Best Regards

Doris
