Creating a Subscription Product using PCS in SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud

In order to create a Subscription product in SAP S/4HANA Cloud, you first need to setup the Product Master data in SAP Subscription billing application using Price calculation. Once the product is successfully created & published in Subscription Billing, then you need to deploy the IFlow to replicate product master data to SAP S/4HANA Cloud. With this IFlow, Material master will be created with Basic data, then you can extend the Sales views of this material & execute the sales transactions like Sales Order, Subscription etc using Solution Order in S/4HANA Cloud.

Now we will understand, how to create a Subscription Product with Price Calculation (PCS).

For this, you first have to create a rate plan template using price calculation.

Click on Rate Plan Template Fiori Tile & Select Create option with Price Scheme.

Then you enter Rate Plan template Description, Billing Cycle, Billing Profile, Currency & the Pricing scheme that you wish to use.

Rate Plan Template

Here you also select what kind of charge you want to create in this rate plan template.

  • One-Time
  • Recurring
  • Usage-Based

You can have all the charges in one rate plan for a product or individual charges as per your product pricing requirements.

Charges

Here you have to select the Rate element for each of the charge type that you have defined in the business configurations in Subscription Billing.

And for recurring charge, you also need to select the relevant check boxes.

Once you are ready with your rate plan template, you go back to Product Fiori Tile & Create a Product in Subscription Billing, there you will find an option to choose a Rate Plan.

In Rate plan, under a product you need to select the market first & then add your rate plan template you created in above steps.

Finally we save the product & publish it for use.

Then we deploy the IFlow (Replicate Products to SAP S4HANA Cloud) to replicate this product master from SAP Subscription Billing to SAP S/4HANA using SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI).
