problem - You can only use one foreign currency per transaction

Hello,

 I have strange situation.

 I convert in PayPal, from 2000EURO to 2049.22USD, then from PayPal USD I withdrawn only 2000USD into Bank account..

I tried to use "Transfer" in QBI, but I got error like: "You can only use one foreign currency per transaction.", maybe because company is registered in UAE.

How can I solve this situation?

Seems QBI not support this, even I have multi-currency activated.

Check screenshot from attach.


Thanks for help in advance.

I have some tips to make your transfer successful, Mihaita.

 

QuickBooks Online (QBO) will only use one foreign currency at a time when moving funds. Alternatively, create a contra account in your home currency to transfer from USD currency to your Contra account (UAE currency). Then, from the Contra account to your EURO account. This ensures that moving funds in and out will go through and doesn't give you an error.

 

You can also utilize a third-party application that allows you to transfer funds between foreign currencies. Go to the Apps menu on the left panel and click Find apps to search for one. 

 

Furthermore, learn how QuickBooks suggests categories based on how you categorise similar transactions. I've added this article for more details: Categorise Online Bank Transactions in QuickBooks Online.

 

Let me know if you need further assistance when transferring funds using multiple currencies. We're here to get you covered.

I am sorry but this solution I do not see it correct because it doesn't reflect the right activity.

Looking for much better answer or for QBI update to implement this function to be able to transfer correct amount from one account to another.

Thank you for your time.
