Routing the Product Sales to a specific Sales Account

We often need to separate the sales of certain products from the default sales account, so that we can  track the movements and sales of these products more accurately. This helps you to track your products and review their profits separately.

To implement this mechanism, you can follow the steps explained sequentially.
