When I go to
Cash Accounts >
Spend Money and change the account to
Supplier credits and select my supplier, I have to manually go to
Suppliers and copy-paste the amount owed.
This seems to be a quite a bit of effort for something that could be pretty automatic. Simply select the Supplier, select the purchase invoices attributed to that supplier that you wish to pay and then have an option to Pay.
The eventual outcome of this process would be a summarized Payment form listing the purchase invoices that were paid for including details such as:
- Reference or Purchase Invoice #
- Description from the purchase invoice
- Total amount from the purchase invoice
And at the bottom of that page would be a total amount indicating the total amount of the payment. I hope this makes sense. I’m using this from a drop-shipping point-of-view where we take orders for suppliers, calculate the total orders for a period of time, deduct a commission, and pay the supplier for all orders minus commission.
My situation is unique in that we’re the ones that receive the money for the orders and generate something like a reverse Purchase Invoice where we inform them how much we owe them and pay them back accordingly. There are regulatory reasons for all this that are a bit too lengthy to go into here.
