Topic: Can I create customer with multi currency

Hi,

Can one customer have more than one currency.

If yes how can I do it?

Thanks

Re: Can I create customer with multi currency

There are two possible ways.

1. Change it with customer ( debtors_master ) table.
2. Customer branch level.

But both are really a bit of tricky and lengthen the process.

You need to record the currency in debtor trans tables and it's customer allocations table.

So you need to pass it overall sales module to get it working.

Alright, you can get some other idea from any other expert in our community. Let's wait for it

Re: Can I create customer with multi currency

For me, I created another account for this customer but with a different short name for another currency:

For example,
Company name:  ABC Co., Ltd
Short name:  ABC-USD

The second account would be:
Company name:  ABC Co., Ltd
Short name:  ABC-SGD

So long as you use a different short name, the system is able to handle it.

Yes, that is the way to go for now since currency is on a per customer basis as of FA 2.4.8. Maybe, FA 2.5 can have currency per branch. There exists a default branch bank account but may mix up currencies and exchange rate computations if used for a single customer!
