One-Time Customer

Customers who only enter into a business transaction with you once are called one-time customers in the SAP R/3 System. It is not necessary to create a customer master record for these customers, since there remains no need for this master record after the business transaction has been carried out, and it would only require unnecessary storage space. For example, you order merchandise from a different vendor once, because your preferred vendor cannot deliver.You create collective master records for one-time customers.
