POS stock transfers


Special goods movements are transactions in the POS systems that involve goods movements but no financial transactions, for example:


  • Stock transfers

  • Consignment goods on approval at customer

  • Consumption posted to a cost center


These goods movements are modeled in SAP Retail in Inventory Management.

The various retailing transactions in the POS systems are identified in SAP Retail using movement types. Movement types control how goods movements are processed in Inventory Management.

Inventory Management can be carried out on an exact article basis or at higher levels such as merchandise category level. Stock can be valued both on a quantity and on a value basis, at purchase (delivered) price, and at sales price. Valuation at delivered price is necessary for postings to the financial accounts in Financial Accounting.

Each process has it's own questionaire as an initial document to initialte the configuration of the process.
