Using Odoo’s multi-currency option, users can send, receive, and send sales invoices, quotes, and purchase orders in multiple currencies. If you enable this feature, you will be able to conduct foreign currency transactions, open foreign currency bank accounts, and produce foreign currency reports. Business users can generate reports on foreign currency activities with Odoo’s multi-currency system, which allows invoices to be issued, bills to be received, transactions to be recorded in different currencies, bank accounts to be set up in other currencies, and invoices to be received in other currencies.

Configuring Currencies


By default, the primary currency is defined by the nation of the business. To set the default currency for your accounting module, go to the “Currencies” tab in the “Settings” window from the “Configuration” menu. In the “Main Currency” field, set the currency.

In the “Configuration” menu, select the “Accounting” option and then select the “Currencies” option.

The “Automatic Currency Rates” field allows users to update exchange rates automatically. In addition, we can handle additional currencies for your business.
