how to register payment in Euro for vendor bill in USD

on 6/17/16, 7:49 AM 624 views

I'm using odoo 9 and I have a supplier list with products in USD.

I've made an order with a total amount of $477,  for which I paid 440€ via paypal. I created the bill in Purchase / Control / Vendor bills, with prices in USD taken from the supplier list.

Problem arises when I try to register payment : I would like to register the final amount of 440€ so I change the currency to EUR, but then it asks how to deal with the payment difference of 39 € : keep open or mark bill fully paid and post difference somewhere.

I must have taken a wrong path. Could someone give me a hint of how deal with that in a better way ?

Did you read the documentation about how multi-currency is working in Odoo? https://www.odoo.com/documentation/user/9.0/accounting/others/multicurrencies/invoices_payments.html

 Purchase order with 477$ , Paid amount through paypal 440  .

Suppose when you receive statement from paypal you import in system. and select Euro Journal.

Now, two things happen

- either you paid full amount(based on your currency rate 477$  == 440 ) then no issue full amount will be adjusted.

- if you have a difference then the difference amount you have to transfer to "foreign exchange gain/loss account".

That's it.

Read similar things, but not this one, thanks !

Well, I read it and thought everything looked good and I marked the vendor bill as completely paid (in USD). But then, the payment appeared under "Accounting/Purchases/Payments" as "Posted"  with a payment amount of 477 EUR.

I have probably made a mistake somewhere and will make another try later.
