Technically, you can either chose one or 2+ accounts. I prefer to have separate accounts (one for reporting currency and one per foreign currency).
Option 1: 2 payment vouchers, one per currency (using separate currency/account in journal): in v8 a pain in the a$% because the amount is converted to currency in payment voucher.
Option 2: 1st payment in the invoice currency + one accounting entry to transfer from foreign currency to invoice currency + 2nd payment in invoice currency.
Option 3: direct accounting entry with all payments. less fancy but more flexible. You have to calculate all FOREX differences though.

This is quick enquiry about multicurrency environment company, what is the best when dealing with partners paying invoices in two currency in same time.

Option1: make two accounts each one with its currency and reflect that on journals
Option2: add second currency to e.g. cash account and create journal with this currency
