quote approval based on gross profit
We have been asked by our customer to have a gross profit-based approval process for quotes.
We know there is an option to use profit margin as a condition to the approval process, however, we couldn't find how to add a cost to products, therefore, the margin is always 100.
Where can we tell C4C the cost for each product?

Cost determination usually cannot be simply derived from product master. Cost can depend e.g. on selected vendors, plants, locations, distances etc. To add "internal" cost to a product in a sales quote/sales order you require implementation effort via SAP Cloud Applications Studio in order to fill the Cost condition in C4C automatically.
Alternatively you can use External Pricing that derives the Cost automatically from SAP OnPrem system. This approach also requires adjustments in SAP Cloud Applications Studio in order to use the external Profit Margin as approval condition.
