Tips and tricks on the AffiniPay integration

Note 1. Synder currently imports gross amounts from AffiniPay, which means that fees and payouts need to be entered manually in your accounting system.

  • Fees: you may want to create one batch expense for all the fees for a week or a month instead of entering each fee.
  • Money transfers: you may need to create transfers in your accounting company from the AffiniPay clearing to your business checking account to zero out the clearing account and reconcile checking.

Note 2. Having the auto-sync mode enabled, your individual AffiniPay transactions, along with all the information they contain, will be automatically recorded in the AffiniPay (required for Synder) account (a Clearing account).
Note 3. Check out our 3 Must-Watch beginner guides to find out how Synder can help you automate your bookkeeping.
