Choosing an existing vendor bill will add the corresponding products of that bill to the current invoice bill inside the ‘Invoice Lines’ tab section. Then, save the form data and confirm the bill using the ‘Confirm’ button.

After confirming the vendor bill, we can move to the next procedure. To register payment for a vendor bill, click on ‘Register Payment’ and select the journal, payment method, amount, and currency. Odoo fills the Memo field automatically if the Payment Reference is set correctly, but if empty, use the vendor invoice number. An In Paymhent banner appears on the bill until it's reconciled.
