Interaction between SAP Customer Checkout and SAP BusinessOne

Hello Everyone,

Very often i hear the question in our partner events, ticketing systems, support inbox, and community  about integration with SAP BusinessOne and more specially partners looking for a list of supported integration scenarios with SAP BusinessOne. So I am writing here a blog post providing you exactly this information.

Some general thoughts about integration .
SAP Customer Checkout is an independent product. SAP Customer Checkout is integrated to SAP Customer Checkout manager, SAP BusinessOne, SAP ByDesign, SAP Retail, and SAP Event Ticketing.
SAP Customer Checkout has its own calculation engine . It is not the same calculation engine used in any of the product to which it is integrated. And it is not an add-on/PlugIn of SAP BusinessOne, SAP ByDesign, SAP Retail or any other SAP product. Hence the price findings and calculations between these integrated systems and SAP Customer Checkout might not match exactly one to one. There probably exists cases where there will be differences between calculations of these systems.

Also when we send the receipt back to these ERP systems, the receipts might be treated differently by these integrated systems. Some systems recalculates(for example SAP BusinessOne) while others like accepts all values like we send it(example SAP ByDesign) and do not re-calculate, while some system might offer multiple possibilities.

For example: For SAP BusinessOne if the receipt is re-calculated by SAP BusinessOne, this can mean that sales item amount or in the tax amount there might be small differences. However the total amount of the transaction remains the same between SAP Customer Checkout and SAP BusinessOne.

Though it is hard to make any general statement, based on my experience and testing of different integrations, I see that based on net/gross amount, absolute or percentage discount, quantity, number of decimal places and other factors  a difference of 0,01 cent per sales item quantity is possible/seen/experienced. This can happen in price calculation differences  and/or in receipt posting. Again this is just my personal observation and not something I can prove in a consistent way.

  • Hello Bikash Bansal

    There seems to be a discrepancy regarding Discounts on manufacturer (OITM.FirmCode) between this blog, Note 2593967 and the Help Source. I have tested (FP09) Discounts on manufacturer  for specific BP, all BP and BP Group and worked fine until B1if Scenario updated to 4.0.16. Could you please clarify?

    Best Regards

    Klaus

    • Hello Klaus Frick,

      From the top of my head,  we never supported OITM.FirmCode. Yes, we did some changes in 4.0.16 for sync of discounts because these discounts were getting applied always.

      However let us investigate in detailed way and come back to you.

      Best Regards,
      Bikash

    • Hello Klaus Frick,

      You were right. OITM.FirmCode and its related manufacturer discount was supported in SAP Customer Checkout as expected.  The changes we(I) did in 4.0.16 broke that. Now we fixed it in 4.0.17. The services are already available in the SAP Note.

      Also we updated this blog and SAP Note 2593967, so that now all of them speak consistently that manufacturer discount is supported.

      Thank You for pointing this out. I highly appreciate your deep knowledge about SAP Customer Checkout.

      Incase of any other open question related to this topic, feel free to get in touch with us.

  • Hello Bikash Bansal,

    I Have a problem with discounts when receipts are synchronized to SAP Business One.

    The discounts in the Items Lines made in Customer Checkout Receipts are stored in SAP Business One Invoices as a Header Discount and It is not convenient because in the same receipt I may have two or more Items that all aren’t discounted.

    It Happens with SAP Business One 9.2 PL 07 (SQL) and SAP Customer Checkout 2.0 FP06 PL08

    Would you please help us resolving this issue?

    Best Regards,

    Mohamed Baccar

    • Hello Mohamed Baccar

      Items discounts are transferred to SAP B1 as item discount and
      Header discount are transferred to SAP B1 as header discount.

      We do not automatically convert header discount into item discount.
