Key used to specify the payment conditions, in the form of discount percentages and payment periods.


The key is used in orders, purchase orders and invoices. The relevant payment conditions provide information for the cash management and forecast, dunning and payment transactions.


When entering a business transaction, you can fill the payment conditions key field in different ways:

  • For most business transactions, the system proposes a key previously saved in the business partner master record.
  • When entering a credit memo in Financial Accounting, you can save a special key in the master record. If no such key exists, you can copy the key intended for the invoice from the business partner master record, by entering "*"
  • Independent of whether a key from the master record has been proposed, you can specify a key during business transaction entry:
    • For orders at item level
    • For purchase orders and invoices at header level


Master records have seperate areas for Financial Accounting, Sales and Distribution, and Purchasing. You can save payment conditions keys in these areas. When entering business transactions, the applications use the key that is in the master record area.
