SAP IS-U Price Transport Control

Most of you working on SAP IS-U project as billing consultant knows the fact that managing and transporting Billing Master Data is a bit tricky.
There are standard tools provided by SAP to move these efficiently across Development -> Quality -> Production, few of them are below:
EA_TRANSPORT – Complete Transport
EA_DOWNLOAD – Download Selective Master Data
EA_UPLOAD – Upload Selective Master Data
Where from the source system you execute Complete Transport which will ask for a new Request and this will be used to move to target system.
Again under EA_TRANSPORT (or EQ82) there is an option to include the Price and Discount changes as well. There are Price-only transports like EPRICE_UPLOAD, REA_PRICE_DOWNLOAD, REA_PRICE_UPLOAD available which can also be referred.
