Maintain card categories

In this step, you

1. Define card categories
2. Determine card categories

Defining payment card categories

Standard settings

The standard system contains:

There are two settings, "One card per transaction" and "Additional data" that have been designed for procurement cards.

Determining card categories

You define number ranges for each card type.

The system uses these ranges to automatically determine the category of a card when you enter a card number in the sales order. The system processes the card according to the card category.

Activities

1. Specify one or more card types.
2. Assign numbers to each entry to indicate the order in which the system is to determine card categories.
3. Assign a card category to each card type.
4. Specify a card number range.
Choose Limit to enter your card numbers and dynamic selections.

Example

A card issuer publishes number ranges for its payment cards. All cards that begin with the number "91" are procurement cards. All other cards issued by the company are standard credit cards.

Wanting to reflect this in your SAP system, you make the following settings:

1. You enter card type CARD.
2. Because you want the system to check first for procurement cards, you enter 10 in the sequence field and 02, the key for procurement cards, in the category field.
3. You specify the number range for all cards beginning with "91" by choosing Limit and entering 91*.

You then make settings for standard credit cards:

1. You enter card type CARD.
2. You enter 20 in the sequence field and 01, the key for credit cards, in the category field.
3. You specify the number range for credit cards by choosing Limit and entering * . This means that all card numbers, other than those beginning with "91", are credit cards.
