SAP Customer Checkout and SAP BusinessOne – Getting started

Hello Everyone,

This blog post informs you about integration of SAP Customer Checkout and SAP BusinessOne. It talks and points to the various resources that exists to help you understand and master the topic.

SAP Customer Checkout has out of the box integration to SAP BusinessOne. SAP Customer Checkout uses the B1if(SAP BusinessOne Integration Framework) for the integration.

During installation of B1if you can activate the scenarios needed for the integration. This activates the b1if scenarios and creates the necessary tables for Monitor. However this step of activation of scenarios and table creation can also be done later if you have an already installed B1if. We will talk and point to the resources for this topics later in this blog.

1.
In the below blog i explain you the different components for SAP Customer Checkout and how the integration to SAP BusinessOne looks like.

Ok, now its getting serious. You want to know the details about handling Price, Discount, Special Price, Period Volume Discount together with BusinessOne. Since this is a complex topic and for some only price is interesting, for some discounts, for some a mixture will exists, and for some multiple of these will exists. So i wrote several blogs which explains the whole topic is a very detailed way focusing on screenshot to convey the message, building one on top of another, so that you can  focus on the topic based your customer requirements.

Topic Blog Link          Basic Explanation (Details in blogs)
Basic for Pricing (Gross Prices or Net Prices)  LINK I want to have the same price like in SAP BusinessOne(meaning GrossPriceList) or If your pricelist in SAP BusinessOne is net price list.
Multiple Pricelist and Customer Specific Pricelist  coming soon You have multiple pricelist.. customer specific price list that you want to apply in checkout or cashier should be able to change which price list is taken.
Discount, Period Volume Discount and Customer Special Price.  coming soon You want to understand how these are applied in checkout. SAP Customer Checkout and SAP BusinessOne are two different calculations engines and different ways how discounts are interpreted.
When discounts, period volume discount and customer special price – All exists  coming soon What happens when there is a special price for customers but also discounts and Period Volume discount or other combinations
When multiple discounts matches(Article, Article Group, Customer Group)  coming soon What happens when there is discount for article, article group, customer, customer group – Are all applied?

There are always special scenarios.. For the out of the box integration to work, we expect that in article in SAP BusinessOne the tax codes are maintained. However for some country localizations this is not the case. They can still synchronize articles into SAP Customer Checkout with small adaptations which are explained in detailed below. Many partners/customers are doing that.
