Residual standalone selling price (RSSP) is a type of SSP, which can help determine residual allocation in the revenue contract. The maximum is allocated to SSP lines and the remaining value is allocated to RSSP if there is any. This situation usually happens when the product is never sold as a standalone product or the product is new to the market. The residual allocation process is performed by RevPro on the lines that are considered as the RSSP type to determine their selling prices.
For RevPro to perform residual allocation on the RSSP lines, you must first upload the RSSP stratification group to RevPro. The procedure of uploading RSSP stratification in the UI is similar to uploading SSP to RevPro. The steps are outlined as follows.
Create an RSSP template and download the RSSP template. Remember to select RSSP as the SSP type. For detailed stepbystep instructions in the UI, see Create and download SSP template.
In the downloaded RSSP template, fill in the following RSSP information for the stratification fields for each RSSP line.
Column header  Description 

RSSP Min Type 
Specifies the method to derive the minimum RSSP values for the RSSP lines. The result determines whether the residual method can be applied. Possible values are as follows:

RSSP Min (Amount) 
Required when RSSP Min Type is set to CUSTOM. Specifies the amount to be used as the unit RSSP Min amount for the line. 
RSSP Min (%) 
Required when RSSP Min Type is set to LIST PRICE. Specifies the percentage of the linelevel List Price, which is to be used as the RSSP Min amount for the line. 
RSSP FV Type 
Determines how to allocate the remaining transaction price (Total Transaction price  Allocated value of SSP lines) across all RSSP lines in the case of residual allocation. Possible values are as follows:

RSSP FV (Amount) 
Required when RSSP FV Type is set to CUSTOM. Specifies the amount to be used as the unit RSSP price for the line. 
RSSP FV (%) 
Required when RSSP FV Type is set to LIST PRICE. Specifies the percentage of the linelevel List Price, which is to be used as the unit RSSP price for the line. 
Alternative SSP Type 
Determines how to allocate the total of minimum RSSP amount across all RSSP lines based on the RSSP price in the case when the residual method cannot be applied. This column takes effect only when the remaining transaction price of the RC is less than the total RSSP Min amount. In this case, standard SSP analysis must be performed across all allocation eligible lines based on the SSP values for all SSP lines and the alternative SSP values for all RSSP lines. Possible values are as follows:

Alternative SSP (Amount) 
Required when Alternative SSP Type is set to CUSTOM. Specifies the amount to be used as the unit SSP price for the line. 
Alternative SSP (%) 
Required when Alternative SSP Type is set to LIST PRICE. Specifies the percentage of the linelevel List Price, which is to be used as the unit SSP price for the line. 
Create an RSSP batch based on the template to upload the RSSP stratification file. For stepbystep instructions in the UI, see Create SSP batch to upload SSP data.
After the RSSP stratification is uploaded to RevPro, the allocation process logic is applied as follows:
Total TP = sum (all linelevel Ext. Sell Price)
Total SSP = sum (initial SSP for all SSP lines)
Remaining TP = Total TP  Total SSP
RSSP Min Type  RSSP Min calculation 

CUSTOM  RSSP Min = RSSP Min (Amount) * Quantity * Term 
LIST PRICE  RSSP Min = linelevel List Price * RSSP Min (%) * Quantity * Term 
SELL PRICE  RSSP Min = linelevel Sell Price * Quantity * Term 
Total RSSP Min = sum (linelevel RSSP Min)
RSSP FV Type  Ext. RSSP calculation (for RSSP lines) 

CUSTOM 
RSSP price = RSSP FV (Amount) Ext. RSSP price = RSSP price * Quantity * Term 
LIST PRICE 
RSSP price = linelevel List Price * RSSP FV (%) Ext. RSSP price = RSSP price * Quantity * Term 
SELL PRICE 
RSSP price = linelevel Sell Price Ext. RSSP price = RSSP price * Quantity * Term 
HIGHER OF SP OR RSSP MIN 
RSSP price = max (linelevel Sell Price, linelevel RSSP Min Amount) Ext. RSSP price = RSSP price * Quantity * Term 
RSSP MIN BASIS 
RSSP price = linelevel RSSP Min Amount Ext. RSSP Price = RSSP price * Quantity * Term 
Alternative SSP Type  Ext. SSP calculation (for RSSP lines) 

CUSTOM 
SSP price = Alternative SSP (Amount) Ext. SSP Price = SSP price * Quantity * Term 
LIST PRICE 
SSP price = linelevel List Price * Alternative SSP (%) Ext. SSP Price = SSP price * Quantity * Term 
SELL PRICE 
SSP price = linelevel Sell Price Ext. SSP Price = SSP price * Quantity * Term 
When alternative SSP is applied, the SSP type of the original RSSP lines will be flagged as ASSP and the RSSP Fail field will be updated to Y.
Before the above derivation process begins, RevPro checks the setting of the ENABLE_RSSP_FLOOR_METHOD profile. If the ENABLE_RSSP_FLOOR_METHOD profile is enabled, RevPro will compare the linelevel Ext. Sell Price with the linelevel RSSP Min amount. If the linelevel RSSP Min amount is greater than the linelevel Ext. Sell Price, the line will be treated as SSP line even if the line is eligible for residual allocation. In this case, the Ext. SSP price for this line will be the Ext. RSSP Min amount.
Two examples are provided to help you understand how RevPro performs residual allocation or alternative SSP allocation to determine the RSSP price for RSSP lines.
In this example, the RSSP stratification that is uploaded to RevPro is as follows:
Line Item #  RSSP Min Type  RSSP Min (Amount)  RSSP Min (%)  RSSP FV Type  RSSP FV (Amount)  RSSP FV (%)  Alternative SSP Type  Alternative SSP (Amount)  Alternative SSP (%) 

SUB1  CUSTOM  6000  CUSTOM  6000  CUSTOM  5000  
SUB2  LIST PRICE  60  LIST PRICE  60  LIST PRICE  60  
SUB3  SELL PRICE  SELL PRICE  SELL PRICE 
There are five allocation eligible lines in the following revenue contract, which includes two SSP lines and three RSSP lines.
SO Line #  Line Item #  FV Type  Qty  Term  Ext. List Price  Ext. Sell Price 

1  SW1  SSP  1  1  30,000.00  20,000.00 
2  SW2  SSP  1  1  15,000.00  10,000.00 
3  SUB1  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  75,000.00 
4  SUB2  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  85,000.00 
5  SUB3  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  90,000.00 
Total  345,000.00  280,000.00 
The total transaction price (Ext. Sell Price) of this RC is 280,000.00. For the two SSP lines, the SSP prices are derived based on the SSP setup and the SSP percentage of the two lines are 60% and 80%.
SO Line #  Line Item #  FV Type  Qty  Term  Ext. List Price  Ext. Sell Price  Ext. SSP 

1  SW1  SSP  1  1  30,000.00  20,000.00  18,000.00 
2  SW2  SSP  1  1  15,000.00  10,000.00  12,000.00 
3  SUB1  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  75,000.00  
4  SUB2  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  85,000.00  
5  SUB3  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  90,000.00  
Total  345,000.00  280,000.00  30,000.00 
The remaining transaction price equals to the total transaction price (280,000.00) minus the total SSP price (30,000.00), which is 250,000.00.
The RSSP Min amount for each RSSP line is calculated based on the RSSP stratification as follows:
SO Line #  Line Item #  FV Type  Qty  Term  Ext. List Price  Ext. Sell Price  RSSP Min 

3  SUB1  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  75,000.00  60,000.00 
4  SUB2  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  85,000.00  60,000.00 
5  SUB3  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  90,000.00  90,000.00 
Total  345,000.00  250,000.00  210,000.00 
The remaining transaction price (255,000.00) is greater than the total RSSP Min amount (210,000.00). So, the residual method is applied to determine the RSSP price based on the RSSP FV Type settings in the RSSP stratification.
SO Line #  Line Item #  FV Type  Qty  Term  Ext. List Price  Ext. Sell Price  Ext. RSSP  Ext. RSSP% 

3  SUB1  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  75,000.00  60,000.00  0.2857 
4  SUB2  RSSP  10  1  100,000.00  85,000.00  60,000.00  0.2857

Total  345,000.00  250,000.00 
The SSP allocation for all the five lines in the RC is as follows:
SO Line #  Line Item #  FV Type  Qty  Term  Ext. List Price  Ext. Sell Price  Ext. SSP  Allocated 

1  SW1  SSP  1  1  30,000.00  25,000.00  18,000.00  18,000.00

Total  345,000.00  250,000.00  345,000.00 
In this example, the RSSP stratification that is uploaded to RevPro is as follows:
Line Item #  RSSP Min Type  RSSP Min (Amount)  RSSP Min (%)  RSSP FV Type  RSSP FV (Amount)  RSSP FV (%)  Alternative SSP Type  Alternative SSP (Amount)  Alternative SSP (%) 

SUB1  CUSTOM  1000  CUSTOM  1000  CUSTOM  2000

Total  195,000.00  77,500.00 
The total transaction price (Ext. Sell Price) of this RC is 77,500.00. For the two SSP lines, the SSP prices are derived based on the SSP setup and the SSP percentage of the two lines are 100% and 80%.
SO Line #  Line Item #  FV Type  Qty  Term  Ext. List Price  Ext. Sell Price  Ext. SSP 

1  SW1  SSP  1  1  30,000.00  20,000.00  30,000.00

5  SUB3  RSSP  10  1  50,000.00  20,000.00  
Total  195,000.00  77,500.00  42,000.00 
The remaining transaction price equals to the total transaction price (77,500.00) minus the total SSP price (42,000.00), which is 37,500.00.
The RSSP Min amount for each RSSP line is calculated based on the RSSP stratification as follows:
SO Line #  Line Item #  FV Type  Qty  Term  Ext. List Price  Ext. Sell Price  RSSP Min 

3  SUB1  RSSP  10  1  50,000.00  12,500.00  10,000.00 
4  SUB2  RSSP  10  1  50,000.00  15,000.00  30,000.00 
5  SUB3  RSSP  10  1  50,000.00  20,000.00  20,000.00 
Total  150,000.00  47,500.00  60,000.00 
The remaining transaction price (37,500.00) is less than the total RSSP Min amount (60,000.00). So, the residual method cannot be applied. Instead, RevPro performs a standard SSP analysis across all allocation eligible lines. The Alternative SSP settings in RSSP stratification are used to determine the SSP value for the RSSP lines.
