Support for mutliple Currencies

Dear Kovah,

This tool is amazing and i am very grateful that you guys have made this open source.

i am planing to use this for an oil field services and supplies company in inited arab emirates, my biggest problem is that i have to deal with at least two different currency’s (USD & AED) when we deal with international companies, or sourcing equipments from an international company we have to quote in USD, but for Local Quotations it should be in AED, i have no problem with the language.

is it possible to do this ? Default Currency is AED, but to change it for specific Quotations/invoices only when needed, like when you are making the quotation is there a way to choose the currency ?

in my case, i have no requirement of online payments and stuff,

Does anyone know when will it be available ?

the main dev doesn’t have time to add features.

maybe you can ask help to someone here:

Multiple currencies were planned for InvoicePlane 2 but the development was stopped recently so this feature will not be included in the near future.

I’d second that request. I just started using invoiceplane and I really like it - it’s a great tool!

I am a single entrepreneur living in the EU and one of my first customer, which does not reside in the EU expects an invoice in USD, so I need an option to choose the currency of each invoice.

What would be the best way to go about it? Could I use custom fields and/or a custom template?
If invoiceplane doesn’t have that feature out of the box, I’d be willing to get my hands dirty and hack something together, perhaps in a custom template so that it may survive a version upgrade?

I am proficient in javascript/css (but not php) and it need not to be pretty.

What would you advise?

Take care,
Martin

Hello MDK,

i couldn’t get it done, since the development team is busy with other developments this feature won’t be available any soon, so i had to replace my invoicing system with a very similar alternative and it will cost you couple of bucks but it still supports multiple currencies.

and there is a second option. you can hire a developer to make that feature for you which in invoicePlane, there was a developer who was on this forum and he offered me that he will be able to do it but at that time i have already bought the alternative version.

please let me know what happens…

Wish you good luck.

Hi Thisara,

thanks for your feedback!
Do you mind telling me with which solution you settled and how much it cost?

If it’s self hosted I am willing to spend a few bucks, although it would need to be rather inexpensive as I am sadly no oil firm. :wink:

Thanks a lot!

Take care,
Martin

Hi,
wait - my googlefu brought me to https://fusioninvoice.com - I bet your talking about this.
I tried the demo and it has the option to select currencies, thanks for the hint!

Take care,

Dear MDK,

Yes, fusininvoice is what i use now, hope you have found out the cost already, i was told by a invoice plane member that fusion invoice also was a fork of invoice plane but then they went in a separate direction and they are no more open source.

if you would like to try fusion invoice please e mail me - thisara@hikkaduwanet.com

Just to clarify: InvoicePlane is the official successor of the first version of FusionInvoice that was an open source project two years ago.
The second version of FusionInvoice that is now offered is a commercial product.

Hi Kovah,
Hi Thisara,

I’ve bought & installed FusionInvoice as well and I am currently evaluating both! :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot for your help and your replies!

Take care,
Martin

This multi-currency issue is quite important!

You should prioritize this implementation…

BTW, I’ve just installed it and I have to congratulate you for the work done so far :smile:
