Define Risk Category and Sub-Catagory

In this SAP tutorial, you will learn about the risk category in SAP and also the step-by-step procedure to define risk categories and risk sub-categories in SAP. 

What is a Risk Category?

The risk category is the segregation of customers into various categories like low-risk customers, medium-risk customers, high-risk customers, etc. With the help of these risk categories, the SAP system decides its action on any customer when they reach credit limit. A customer in the high-risk category gets blocked when he/she exceeds their credit limits and gets unblocked for further purchasing only when he/she pays the previous amount.
