In this topic, we described about the Define Risk Categories process along with technical information.
In some scenarios, it is required to categorize the customers based on their payments history, track records etc.
SAP provides an option called risk category to categorize the customers. The customers can divide into various categories like low risk customers, medium risk customer, high risk customers, etc. Each risk category has defined with certain limits.
If the customer exceeded the limit the system automatically changes the risk category from low to high. If any customer reaches to high risk category, system blocks the customer for the further purchases. Once the customer clears the due amounts then the system changes the risk category to low and allows him to the further purchases.
