Vendor charge IDPartners should add the unique identifier for the product being sold that is used in the partner’s inventory control system or price listing. In short, the SKU for the product being sold. If the partner does not have a unique ID then a Red Hat Marketplace Onboarding Specialist will enter a unique ID on behalf of the partner.
IncrementProvides the ability to sell charges in “bundles.” While a product may be sold in some contexts in increments of 1, there are times low cost items (for example, a $1.00 charge) are sold in a bundle of 3, 5, 10, and so on. The increment number multiplies the per unit cost. So a $1.00 unit sold in a bundle of 10 is \$10 dollars. In some cases units already come containing more than 1. So a unit could be equal to 10 GB, 15 VPCs or 100 server calls, etc. In this case the increment would be 1 unless otherwise requested.
