Still getting my head around how ERPNext works, it’s confusing at the beginning but things starting to make some sense now!
I’m a lil bit confused though, I’ve figured out I can use a Journal Entry to input expenses. Like I paid £31 for access to a CSV sheet of data to use in my program, and my current process is:
Import Bank Transaction
Go into bank transaction and add a Journal Entry to that, debit the expense account and credit the bank account used to pay it (via debit card)
That works fine - but then there’s no record of the company I paid for this CSV file?
Is there anyway I can associate a payment with a company?
I looked into Payment Entries - which seemed like it would be suitable but if I’m correct, you need to make an associated Purchase Invoice for that, right?
I don’t mind doing that - but is that how it is supposed to be done in ERPNext? The Purchase Invoice is just for my internal reference right? The company invoices me via email/PDF so I don’t need to send them anything.
Is the “Supplier” doctype meant for this type of contact as well? I think I’m getting a bit confused because from what I’ve read the supplier is meant for direct expenses for items you use in manufacturing/items to sell on, but I am primarily a service based business, so the “supplier” in this instance would just be someone I bought something off, whether it be a software license, or some useful information.
Any help is greatly appreciated once more
Thanks for all the effort this community puts into it’s project, once I’m up to speed, I’d love to help contribute towards some documentation
