When you create a subscription, the sales price is derived from the sales price setup that was created in the Sales price (subscription) form.

In the Sales price (subscription) form, you can create sales prices for a specific subscription or you can create sales prices that apply more broadly. For a sales price to be applied to a subscription, the period code and the currency of the subscription must be identical to the period code and the currency of the sales price.

If the period code and currency are identical for the subscription and the sales price, subscription sales prices are selected on the basis of the priorities listed in the following table. A blank cell in the table indicates an empty field and an X indicates a value that is equal to the value in the subscription from which the transaction is generated.

When a subscription fee is created, the sales price with the greatest level of detail, as noted in the table above, is selected as the subscription sales price.

You can update the subscription sales price by updating the base price or the index. You can update by a percentage or to a new value.

When you create a subscription fee, the sales price is based on the sales price setup of the subscription. You can either use the base price from the subscription price setup or create indexed sales prices.

You want to set up subscription sales prices of EUR 500 for a new project 9030. In the Sales price (subscription) form, you create a subscription sales price line as indicated in the following table.

Note that the Category and Subscription fields are empty.

You then create the following subscriptions.

Now you create subscription fees for both subscriptions in the subscription group Sub1:

  1. Click Service management > Setup > Service subscriptions > Subscription groups.

  2. In the Subscription groups form, click Function > Create subscription fee.

  3. In the Create subscription fee form, enter the appropriate information. For more information, see Create subscription fee transactions.

Subscription fees that have a sales price of EUR 500 are created for both subscriptions, as shown in the following table.

Later, you decide that you want to specify sales prices for the category SubCat1 for project 9030. Therefore, you create a new sales price line that has a sales price of EUR 550 for the combination of project 9030 and fee category SubCat1. There are now two subscription sales price lines for project 9030, as shown in the following table.

You repeat the procedure described above to create subscription fees for both subscriptions in the subscription group Sub1. The following table shows the transactions that are created for each subscription that is attached to the subscription group.

In the first transaction for subscription 00020_135, the sales price of EUR 550 derives from the subscription sales price that is set up for the combination of the specific project and category. In the second transaction for subscription 00021_135, the sales price of EUR 500 is used as the project subscription sales price because there is no price set up for the combination of project 9030 and category SubCat2.
