Define charge definitions

You can define charge definitions that you can associate with orders and invoices by creating charge categories.

These categories contain a group of related charge names that can be used when the particular category is used. When adding a charge to an order header or an order line, you must use the charge categories that you have defined here. The charge name that is used on the order header or on the order line may or may not be defined in the system. The charge name is validated, depending on the Validate Charge Name rule in the additional payment rules.

The default charge definitions of Sterling Order Management System Software are:

  • Shipping
  • Handling
  • Personalization
  • Discount

The default charge definitions are only available to the Hub organization at the time of installation. Any Enterprises that are created must create their own charge definitions.
