Business value

With this release, Commerce customers with operations in Russia will be able to move to the modern Dynamics 365 Commerce service and ensure their implementation is compliant with local regulatory requirements in Russia.

Feature details

Commerce localization for Russia includes features critical for implementations of Dynamics 365 Commerce in Russia, such as handling of cash payments, prepayments, and customer returns, and processing of gift card operations and loyalty point redemptions according to local requirements. It also includes a sample of integration of point of sale (POS) with fiscal printers.

At the time of general availability, this functionality will provide the following capabilities:

  • Processing of cash payments using petty cash journals in Commerce headquarters.
  • Processing of prepayments and posting of VAT for prepayments in Commerce headquarters.
  • Handling of customer returns according to local requirements.
  • A sample of the integration of the POS with a fiscal printer.

The fiscal printer integration sample leverages the fiscal integration framework, supports one of the popular fiscal printer models available on the Russian market, and enables registration of sales in various cash-and-carry and customer order sales scenarios. It also provides options for error handling in basic scenarios such as when retry is possible, as well as more advanced scenarios such as registering a completed transaction that was not previously registered in the fiscal printer. The sample is a part of the Retail SDK and can be built and used as-is. Implementation partners can also extend the integration functionality to cover all required retail scenarios or build integration with other fiscal printers based on the sample.

The following capabilities will not be available at general availability, but may be made available in later updates:

  • Support of customer orders in fiscal printer integration.
  • Restrictions on returns of items that belong to selected item groups.
  • Aggregation of sales and returns that are registered within one shift.
  • Processing of issued gift cards as prepayments and a fiscal printer functionality to support this.
  • Processing of a loyalty point redemption as a price discount in a retail transaction and a fiscal printer functionality to support this.
  • Payment integration.
  • Cash collection from retail stores.
  • E-commerce capabilities for Russia.
  • Gift card policies.
  • Pricing enhancements.
  • Labeling enhancements.
  • N-1 support for upgrade from AX 2012 R3.
