It is common practice in the industry to sell lots. Normally, the pre-order phase is interactive between buyer and seller. With EDI, the lots in the ORDRSP are then resolved directly and treated individually. Some manufacturers also have EANs for these shopping lots, but these do not usually appear in the messages.

There are possibilities to process this lot topic in some enterprise resource planning systems. However, this usually only takes place in close cooperation with, for example, Intersport dealers with the dedicated Intersport merchandise management solution.
