Consignment Sales Process in SAP SD – Step by Step Process

Consignment Sales Process in SAP SD

Consignment fill-up (send materials to customer consignment).

Here you have a consignment fillup order and a consignment fillup delivery. Consignment issue (issue materials from customer consignment to the customer).

Here you have a consignment issue order, consignment issue delivery and a consignment issue invoice. (the flow is very similar to a normal OR flow, but the materials are issued from the consignment stock instead of plant stock unrestricted). Consignment return (return materials from customer ownership to customer consignment).

Here you have a consignment return order, consignment return delivery and a consignment return invoice. (the flow is very similar to a normal RE flow, but the materials are returned to the consignment stock instead of plant stock returns). Consignment pickup (pickup consignment stock and move it to plant stock).

Here you have a consignment pickup order and a consignment pickup delivery.

Note that in consignment fillup and consignment pickup there are no invoices since there is no change of ownership for the materials.

How to Perform consignment order?

In consignment orders you are allowing the stock to sit in your customer location. Once he informs that he used the stock you will invoice him. If he returns the stock you will accept the stock to take it back.


It is defined in 4 steps.

1. Consignment fill up:

Sales document type is KB

Item category KBN
shedule line category E1

In this step, you are not invoicing the customer. document flow is sales order —- delivery item category. It will not be relevent for billing and pricing because you are not charging money for these goods in this step.

In schedule line category, you will set movement type 631 & set for availability check and TOR.

2. Consignment Issue.
Once the customer informed you that he used all the goods or partial goods then you will create consignment issue for used goods.
