Free Goods Determination in Sales Order

Free goods has the following limitations:

- Free goods can only be supported on a 1:1 ratio. This means that an order item can lead to a free goods item. Agreements in the following form are not supported: ‘With material 1, material 2 and material 3 are free of charge‘ or ‘If material 1 and material 2 are ordered at the same time, then material 3 is free of charge‘.

- Free goods are not supported in combinations with material structures (for example, product selection, BOM, variants with BOM explosion).

- Free goods are only supported for sales orders with document category C (for example, not quotations).

- Free goods are not supported for deliveries without reference to a sales order.

- Free goods cannot be used in make-to-order production, third-party order processing and scheduling agreements.

- If you defined a free goods for variants in a generic article (only SAP Retail), you can only process the variants in the purchase order and goods receipt individually (as single articles). In other words, you cannot process them using the generic article matrix.

Not all Sales Order can be used for free goods determination. You have to check the SD document category if it does not work. Only category 'C' are supported. Check transaction VOV8.

Assume that you want to configure an inclusive FREE goods routine. Customers must order a minumum quantity of 5 before any free goods can be assign. For every quantity of 3, the customer will be given 1 free goods.

Hi

1.Run trans. VBN2 to first create master record for free goods as follows:

Enter following information in selection screen:

- Free goods type: NA00

- Sales org, distribution channel, customer # and execute.

Now in next screen create the record as follows:

- First select the exclusive button and verify that you are in exclusive view.

(that is if you want exclusive)

- Material#, Min qty - Say 34 cartons. (check in what units you want to manage)

From: 34 cartons

unit of measure:

Free goods: 12 Pcs

Unit of measure: Pcs

Calcualtion type: 1 or try the other options

Deliver control: Blank or any of the other options suitable to you.

Now save and exit.

Now run VA01 for 34 cartons and press enter. The system will automatically propose the free goods

item at no additional charge. Try higher order qtys and see if the free goods qty are scaling up.

If not adjust the calculation parameters in the master record screen

It should be transaction VBN1. Sorry for the error.

VBN2 is to change the record. VBN1 creates it.

If you want to give free goods to some of the customers than

1. create a customer group say 99 for FREE GOODS

In Free Goods Menu:

2. add a feild catalog for CUSTOMER GROUP

3. create a condition table (free goods) say 555 only for customer group

4. create a sequence say FREE with condition table 555

5. create a condition type say FREE with

6. maintain pricing procedure say ZFREE with condition type FREE

Now assign:

7. Active Free goods Determination or Assign with your sales organisation this procedure ZFREE

8. Create free goods determination with transaction code /nvbn1 for FREE with Key Csuomer Group

99 for exclusive

Give customer Group say 99 and from 34 to 34 free 12

U can send ur email id to me. I will send u the entire document with screen shots. it will be more helpful to u.
