What is a Consignment Process in SAP?

SAP  Consignment Process is a method used by any vendor when he provides the company materials on loan. The materials of the company are kept in the warehouse until you withdraw the said materials for processing. So a liability is generated for the vendor, and payment is done by the customer on agreed intervals, for example, weekly or monthly.

The customer and vendor must agree to a mutually decided price in a vendor consignment process. The prices are kept in consignment info records in the SAP system.
