Allow Zero-Amount Payments
Track void/empty payments when needed.
The Allow Zero-Amount Payments module developed by Blue Stingray allows you to enter 0 amount payments into the system. Typically Odoo and some other accounting systems do not allow you to do this since a 0 amount payment will not affect any accounts, but you might need it for tracking purposes! Keep the payments, make notes against them, tag customers, etc. and keep the total payment amount 0.

Enter zero-amount payments.
Allow employees to enter and track 0 amount payments through your Odoo instance. This is often used for registering payments for a refund and a standard invoice that have the same amount. There is no process change between how you use Odoo when installing this module. Just enter a payment or refund as you normally would and type 0 into the payment amount.

Installation and Configuration
1. Copy the files to your addons folder.
This step depends on exactly how your installation is configured, but you will want to place the blue_allow_zero_payments module that is provided on download into an addons folder on your server. If you are not sure about what folders are considered addons folders then you can look at your odoo configuration file.
You can place these files on your server multiple different ways. We recommend either SCP/SSH or FTP.
2. Restart your Odoo instance.
Whenever installing new applications, you will need to restart your Odoo instance. We highly recommend that you do not do this during your standard hours of operations, and in a production environment. There is always a chance that modules can conflict, and you do not want to take down your system for any amount of time like this.
Use the standard method that you would normally use to restart your Odoo instance. There are multiple different methods for this depending on your setup but we typically see something like the following:
# Using a service script on Linux
sudo service odoo-server restart
# Using Docker and Docker-Compose
3. Install The Module.
Once you have restarted your instance, you can navigate to the Apps screen within your Odoo instance and install the Allow Zero-Amount Payments module. This will open up all of the feature for you to access.
That's it! Start using the new features!

Allow Zero Payments
The module is installed through Odoo's App interface. It does not have any dependencies.
Normally, Odoo requires that any payments be greater than zero. If you have a need for allowing payments of 0, either to customers or vendors, this module will allow that. You will make payments as you normally would.
