Configuration in ERPLY Books Accounting Software. ERPLY Books is an accounting software that is constantly improving: our development team makes changes every week in order to make customers’ life easier. You can find most of the rules in ERPLY Books software in “Settings” > “Configuration”. This manual explains the meaning of these rules and settings and gives recommendations when you should use these.

You can change, remove and add all the settings whenever you like. If you have made all the needed changes, then save and log out and in. Then the added settings will take effect.


  • Language – add a language that you use on your account.
  • Currency – add a currency that you use on your account.
  • Default overdue (% in a day) – interest for a late payment that your debtors will pay.
  • Days to deadline – If you create an invoice in ERPLY Books and you don’t determine a deadline, then the system creates automatic deadline (amount of  days that you set here). You can determine payment deadline that is based on customers. For example, when you have customers who’s payment deadline is different then others, then you have to make changes in customer’s card. Customer’s card rules are higher than configuration rules.
  • First invoice no. – determine, from which number the invoices, that are created in ERPLY Books, will begin (that means default numbers, if you don’t add numbers manually. Invoice number can be in 100-digit (numbers and letters).

This email is important for customers who use purchase inbox.
