transactions missing someting

whatever shared this idea 1 year ago
Under Consideration

transactions are not really ideal right now.

right now anything is booked as "in" leaving an alwas positive and ever growing balance - that is wrong

also paying by credit balance also raises the balance - wrong again

everyting could have been so easy just with a very slight adjustment WHMCS could have get rid of all the headache

transaction should work like this.

payment comes in (either automatic or manual) record

amoutn x - IN - raises the balance

once you pay an invoice with it (or add payment to invoice)

amount x - out to invoice

in case you record something like a mail in payment to an invoice it should generate !!! 2 !!! transactions

one for money goes in, antoher for money goes out "into" the invoice

that would clearup the transaction balance

this would render "credits" redundant - a positive balance is already the credit

no need for additional functions or extra logic

just plain a simple transaction log, in and out properly and everything is solved.

further with a simple addon (currency id) whmcs could be properly and fully multicurrency able

just add a currency id into the transaction log, everythign is solved then

that would mean a customer would have virtually a seperated balance sheet for any different currency he used.

without adding any logic, jsut a different view / sql select

but right now transactions are simply broken. it cant be that a payment done by (transaction on credit balance) generates a frhter positive balance... were mssing the second side of every transaction, right now its just pure going in

Hi there,

Thanks for your feedback.

It sounds like you are suggesting WHMCS switched to a double-entry acocunting system? Is that correct?
