In my company we sell items online, and its like this:
- Customer starts the order on the Website and pays in that moment on a Payment Platform (MercadoPago)
- We receive the order details automatically, start the manufacture and we see the approved payment, but the money will be available 15 days after that.
If I understood right, we need to add that payment in the first day on Accounts Receivable(AR) and then, 15 days later, “transfer” that to bank/cash. (simplified)
The Question: Is there a way to automate the last part? Do I need to manually insert the passing from AR to Bank 15 days after the sale is made? Cant I set a record at the same time the Sale is born?
How are you doing it?
PD: I want to record when is the money going to be available at the sale creation, so I can know before hand, for example, how much cash is going to be available the next week.
