In SAP, it is possible to create a "One-Time Customer" master record for customers with whom the business does not have frequent transactions and for whom you do not want to maintain separate master records. Instead of creating a traditional customer master record with detailed information, you can create a simplified version of the customer record during the transaction itself.
What is SAP One-Time Customer?
SAP One-Time customer refers to a customer with whom the business does not have a regular or ongoing relationship. These customers are typically infrequent buyers or engage in non-recurring transactions, and their specific details are not saved as master records in the system.
SAP t-code FD01 is used to create a one-time customer in SAP GUI.
