Allow Zero-Amount Paymentsby Blue Stingray
Allow Zero-Amount Payments
Track void/empty payments when needed.
The Allow Zero-Amount Payments module, developed by Blue Stingray, allows you to enter zero amount payments into the system. Typically Odoo and some other accounting systems do not allow you to do this since a 0 amount payment will not affect any accounts, but you might need it for tracking purposes. Keep the payments, make notes against them, tag customers, and keep the total payment amount zero.

Enter zero-amount payments.
This module allows you to enter and track zero amount payments through your Odoo instance. This is often used for registering payments for a refund and a standard invoice that have the same amount. You will encounter no process changes once you install this module. You will enter a payment or refund as you normally would and type zero (0) into the payment amount.

Installation and Configuration
1. Copy the files to your addons folder.
This step will depend on how your installation is configured, but essentially, once the new module is downloaded, you will need to move it into an addons folder on your server. If you are unsure which folder is reserved for add-ons, you can find that information on your Odoo configuration file.
The files can be placed on your server in multiple ways. We recommend using either SCP/SSH or FTP.
2. Restart your Odoo instance.
Whenever new applications are installed, Odoo will need to be restarted. We highly recommend that you do not do this during your standard hours of operations or in a production environment. There is always a possibility of module conflict, so take precautions to reduce the amount of time your system is unavailable to your users.
You can use the same method that you normally use when restarting Odoo. Typical commands we have encountered are:
# Using a service script on Linux
sudo service odoo-server restart
# Using Docker and Docker-Compose
3. Install The Module.
Once you have restarted your instance, navigate to the Apps screen within your Odoo instance and install the Allow Zero-Amount Payments module. This will open up all of the features for you to access.
That's it! You can now start using the new features!

Allow Zero Payments
The module is installed through Odoo's App interface. It does not have any dependencies.
Normally, Odoo requires that any payments be greater than zero. If you have a need for allowing payments of 0, either to customers or vendors, this module will allow that. You will make payments as you normally would.
