Purchase Management

3 Way Matching-Purchases, Receptions and Bills

In certain enterprises, you may get a bill from a merchant before receiving ordered products. However, it isn’t mandatory that you make the bill payment before product is received at your workplace.

To define whether the merchant bill ought to be paid or not, you can utilize what is known as the 3-way matching. It alludes to the comparison of the data showing up on the Purchase Order, the Vendor Bill and the Receipt.

The 3-way matching encourages you to abstain from paying erroneous or deceitful vendor bills.


Go in Purchase > Configuration > Settings and activate the 3-way matching.

Would it be a good idea for me to pay this vendor bill?

When this setting has been enacted, another data shows up – Should be paid on the vendor bill.You can find the new line under Other info tab.

This way Odoo directs you whether to make the bill payment or not.
