I'm trying to set up Odoo 8 but I face an issue with the product prices. I can set the sale price and cost price but I don't know how to set the currency. The currency might be different for cost and sale and it is not relating to a specific customer but to a specific product.
How can I, when creating a product, set up the price AND the currency without having to go into the price lists settings (which are really complicated to understand). I'm probably missing something... It cannot be so hard to set up a cost for each product.
Thank you for your help !
You can buy and sell the products in different currencies, but the cost of the product will always stay in the base currency in which you are working. This is because Odoo calculates the exchange rate losses and gains. So you should set the company currency and sale price, and purchase price will be in that currency. Than you can have pricelists in different currencies or otherwise your prices will be in the base currency. Otherwise you will not able to calculate exchange rate losses and gains. If you dont want to go everytime to pricelists, just use same pricelists for different customers and products in the currency you want or hide the 'Pricelist" field and use "Currency" field(This needs minor work on code")
Thank you for your answer. Is there a way to make it easy ? Without modification, how should I fill the form ? I have no Pricelist field appearing...
For example, my base currency is EUR. If I receive a quotation in USD should I convert myself from USD to EUR and fill the "cost price" field with the Euro converted amount? What about the sell price if it is in GBP?
Thanks again for your help
