Credit Limit

Different businesses might have their own credit management needs. In SAP you can set up automatic credit checks. Credit management allows you to reduce the credit risk by setting up the credit limit for your customers. If a customer places an order which exceeds his or her credit limit set in SAP, a customer will see a warning alert in the shopping cart of the Sana web store.
