Hello everyone, I hope all of you’re doing a great job.
I was exploring a tool that can help me to generate sales invoices based on the subscription model. I found ERPNext, and have tried installing it on the localhost. To be precise, my mom operates a mini-restaurant (it may apply to any business like groceries, milk, newspaper or any kind of daily consumables). Actually, students mess.
Where a student joins us by purchasing a subscription, a monthly subscription, let’s suppose ₹4000 per month, which includes 2 diets off(vacation for us). If I calculate, per diet pricing for 58 diets, it is around ₹69, rounding off ₹70 per diet. But, If a student does not join us as a subscription, we charge ₹80 per diet.
All accounting software measurably fails here in this type of accounting management, might be I’m wrong or illiterate. I have played a lot with subscription feature, auto-generated invoice feature, sales invoice, everything. But, I failed and at last, I’m seeking everyone’s help. I found ERPNext easy to adopt, but quite tricky.
What I expect is a monthly invoice generated only for what student diet consumed, I mean if some students consumed 50 diets and not 58 diets, it means the invoice should be of sum ~3500 instead of 4000. I tried understanding all documents got to know about prorate pricing but couldn’t figure out, how to achieve this. Consider me as a noob, just 2 days back I got to know about ERPNext.
