Expense Refunds

Hello I have a question? I bought something on amazon for 106.72 and marked it in expenses. I returned the item to amazon, which they put back 106.72 into my business account. I went back into Expenses and clicked new expense I noticed I could no longer use a negative number for amount in expenses. I can't put this under revenues because it will be shown as income and it doesnt relate to any customers it relates to a vendor. Whats the proper way to do this please help..

I noted this in a git hub post but my post was deleted and I was banned (?). Anyway, this was discussed in a thread that has been deleted (?). In the discussion, I suggested creating a payment with negative amount. This worked, but the new version doesn't allow a negative value. Probably just as well because a negative payment not attached to a bill could cause problems in reporting. Further, there's a new credit note app that's reasonably priced, so the akaunting team recommends that.

As I use this program, it seems that the free version comes with the most basic accounting features, and anything further - such as this - requires app purchases. This is fair because there's a lot of development into this software and it's one of only a few self-hosted cloud accounting programs.

I gotta say I feel like this should be included in the base version. With this addon I'm now paying more monthly for Akaunting than I would be for QBO, where all this functionality and more is included. I'm disappointed. Wish this was at least less expensive b/c I'd have liked to self-host a piece of FOSS software but it's no longer financially advantageous to do so.
