Pricing Rules of different types can be combined. Discount, Brand and Product Group Level Rules are additive.
The addition algorithm offers two distinct modes:
- Linear-additive - Linear-additive adds rebates in a linear fashion, taking the sum of all rebates and applying them to the total. For example, a line discount of 35 percent plus a brand discount of 5 percent equals a 40 percent overall rebate.
- Price-additive - Price-additive rebates use an iterative calculation. For example, a line discount of 35 percent plus a brand discount of 5 percent equals a 38.25 percent overall rebate. The initial discount of 35 percent is deducted from the total, and the new total is the starting point for the 5 percent discount.
Price-additive calculation is the default behavior. It can be switched to linear addition by enabling the Veeva Setting Enable Simple Rebate Addition.
Configuring Combining Pricing Rules
To enable this feature:
Ensure initial configuration is complete.
Set the Rebate_InLevel_Addition_vod Veeva Setting to 0 for linear-additive pricing, or to 1 for price-additive pricing. The default value is 0.
A null value is treated as 0.
Using Combining Pricing Rules
Inline Price-Additive Calculations
With the Rebate_InLevel_Addition_vod Veeva setting, users can indicate whether multiple rebates in the same discount level on an order should use linear-additive or price-additive behavior.
This setting applies to the following Order_Line_vod discount rule fields:
