When you handle a return order, you must specify a reason return code to identify why the product is being returned. You must also specify a disposition code and a disposition action to determine what should be done with the returned product itself.

A disposition code can be applied when you create the return order, register item arrival or packing-slip update an item arrival, and end a quarantine order.

You can define any disposition codes that you need in order to support the business processes. The following table provides a set of typically used codes to assign return-item disposition.

Miscellaneous

For each disposition code that you define, you must select a disposition action. The disposition action determines the physical and financial implications of the disposition codes. For example, the disposition action determines the physical handling of the returned item, the financial effect of the returned item, and if a replacement item must be sent to the customer. You can define an unlimited number of disposition codes according to your business needs, but there are only six predefined disposition actions that you can select from. The following table provides the disposition actions and their definitions.
