How do I configure currency exchange rates?


If you want to work with currencies other than your master currency, you have to configure an exchange rate for the translation.

Example: You used the initial setup wizard to set your metasfresh system to USD, but you also want to work in EUR.


  1. Open “Currency Rate” from the menu.
  2. Create a new Currency Rate.
  3. Select a base currency (Currency) and a counter currency (Currency To), e.g. USD to EUR.

    Note: Each exchange rate must be configured separately, e.g. USD to EUR, EUR to USD etc.

  4. Enter either the factor to Multiply Rate by or the divisor to Divide Rate by.

    Note: The other operand will be automatically calculated, respectively.

  5. Select “Spot” as the Currency Type.
  6. Set a Valid from date.
  7. metasfresh saves the progress automatically.
  8. Repeat steps 2 to 6 for further currency translations, e.g. EUR to USD.

Error Message

If the currency translation is not configured correctly, an error message will appear when creating a goods receipt or an invoice that looks like this:

... Unable to convert from currency $ ... to currency € ...
