IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Delivery charge should be refunded for carry orders with non pre-paid tenders

The business requirement is to support order level promotional discounts(which applies to the whole basket) for Carry orders. For Carry order with non pre-paid tender (not pre-settled) and having header charges as promotions passed in the create order input xml to Sterling, we observed that the header charges gets refunded when the payment processing agent picks up.

Note: All the lines have the delivery method as CARRY. Also, we couldn't find any documentation on how payment processing works for carry

Customer should have the ability to pay for the delivery charge in case the carry order is shipped to the delivery location.

    Hi Deepak, I have discussed this request with support and engineering and my understanding is that an alternative solution approach was suggested and updated product documentation similar to what was included in the ticket is being worked upon. Please reach out to support if any further information is needed for the suggested approach.

    Hi Deepak,

    Thank you for submitting your idea. We discussed this internally and would like to gather some additional details to better understand your scenario. Is there a PMR related to this request that has any existing details?

    Your ask is that a header level delivery charge should be refunded for a carry order. In the description, you also state that the header charge gets refunded when the payment agents processes the order. One aspect I'm not clear on is why is there a delivery charge on a carry order to start with? Was this a delivery order to start with and is changing to a carry order? If that is the case, can the delivery charge be removed at that point?
