Within SAP ECC, Price scaling is functionality within the pricing condition types. This helps the enterprise to increase their sales as well as revenue. By this functionality, we can sell a particular product to different customers at different prices. At a particular point in time if you want to sell the product, we can offer the discount price by using volume scales.

Understanding Volume Prices within SAP ERP

While creating each pricing condition, we can define the pricing scale. A pricing scale can be defined based on Quantity, weight, and volume, etc.

In this article, we can see how to set up pricing conditions based on volume and how it integrates with Magento.

Some important SAP transactions for price conditions

Following are some important SAP transactions to set up volume prices. Having them handy can help you process in an easy manner.

i) VK11 – Create conditions

ii) VK12 – Change condition

iii) VK13 – Display condition

Setup price conditions:
Launch the VK12 tcode. Select the condition type for which scales are maintained. In this, we have chosen the existing one. ZP01 is the condition which is shown in below screenshot.

Integrate-SAP-ECC-Magento-BannerUnderstanding prices within Magento:

Magento by default provides the Product price, special prices and tier prices for the product. If we want to provide discount prices based on bulk quantity default functionality will not support. However, we can achieve this by using a special price but we may lose some profit. Without losing the profit, we can achieve by using APPSeCONNECT connector which will support this kind integration with SAP.

Once the order is placed in Magento and it is synchronized with SAP, prices and conditions are automatically determined which is shown in below screenshot. In B2B business customers who are placing bulk orders will receive the discounts and it increases the sales of the product.
