When I tried to pay customer invoice I got the error: "The account is not defined to be reconciled!"

To stop this error message I should open the account defined in my invoice, and set to active Allow Reconciliation check box in account form.

What it's mean? What's the impact to active reconciliation to a account?

Reconciliation refers to a process that compares two sets of records to make sure they are in agreement. In this case, the invoice amount should equal the payment amount - reconciliation is matching the two so that they 'cancel each other out' marking the invoice as paid.

Your system is not configured in a way that supports reconciliation on the account(s) you are using for invoicing.
