In a standard SAP system, price is defined as gross price of a material. Below are the predefined price types in a system −
By default, the system takes gross price in the automatic pricing for a business transaction. In a standard SAP system, system takes customer specific price. If no such price exists, system checks for a valid price list type. If this is also not present in the system, it takes the material price.
When material price is created, it means – the price for a specific material or pricing for a specific material type. A combination of sales organization and distribution channel for which material price is valid.
As per your business requirement in an organization, you can define your own price list.
Example − Price list can be created as per the customer type like Retail, Wholesale customer and so on. Price list can also be created as per currency type.
Customer Specific Prices − You can also create pricing records for specific customers. You can assign pricing record for specific combination of customers and material type.
