Sales channel account^

Add the sales ledger account to your invoice. If you leave this column blank, the system will automatically assign the last account in each group. For example, if you have generated 11 Sales and Income ledger accounts, 700000011 will appear.


Includes the currency of the invoice

Currency exchange

Fill in this field if you need to keep the change of the currency

In case you leave blank lines between invoices, the template will not be imported. It is important to add the data without leaving space and correlatively, since lines from different invoices cannot be combined.

Invoices per item

If what you need is to import invoices with more than one item, you will have to use this same template adding a line for each product and using the same number of invoice. For example, if you have 10 different articles, you will have to add a line for each one, indicating the relevant information, such as the SKU and the concept, for a total of 10 lines with identical billing numbers.
