How can I use Customer Invoice to pay for a Vendor Bill?
I saw the option to "Extend as Vendor"  on customer screen and "Extend as Customer" on vendor screen but I didn't find how do I apply a vendor bill to a customer invoice...
I would appreciate any suggestion.

Hi @peterpino91 

Here is a workaround you can try, as there is no direct option :

  • Create a dummy clearing/ cash account used exclusively to apply AP bill to an AR invoice
  • Create a payment method , enable use on AR and AP module, link it only to above cash account
  • Make a payment for AP bill using above payment method
  • Receive payment using this payment method on AR invoice
  • Net balance on Cash account will be zero ( the dummy clearing account )

Hope this helps,


Hello Vijay, thanks so much for your response! I appreciate it.
