Dynamic pricing was enabled in Siebel (8.1.1) and a reader has problem in enabling contract-based pricing. Lets look in to complete query and its resolution suggested by us.
Query: Hi there, could you please shed some light about how to enable (and use) contract-based pricing is Siebel (8.1.1)? Dynamic Pricing is already enabled (I have both a vanilla server environment and PSP signals-fixed sample at hand to experiment with). In relation to this one, shall I do something to get Discount Matrix pricing to work? It does not seem to do (aggregate discounts are ok, so dynamic pricing is enabled). How is the discount matrix related to the price lists?
Thank you in advance. Istvan
Contract-based pricing: you will need to configure it yourself, there is no vanilla functionality for this. I plan to write an article on this but not at the moment.
For matrix-based pricing: yes, it doesn’t in Siebel vanilla, Siebel forgot to add it to the workflow process!!! again, It’s in my long list of things to do. However, both types of discounts are very similar. you need to add a workflow process step with business service Row Set Transformation Toolkit with method “Simple LookUp Transform”. contract-based pricing would require you to create a separate list of products and price adjustments (Price List is a perfect place to store this), and again, add a step based on the same business service/method I just mentioned.
