Synder can connect your Authorize.Net payment platform to your QuickBooks/Xero company for automated bookkeeping. You will see the gross amount of sales in your accounting company after the synchronization and the reconciliation will take several clicks.

Please note: Authorize.Net has a monthly fee for its services, not per-transaction fees, which you will need to create manually in your bookkeeping system.

Please note: Synder will automatically sync any sales transactions only AFTER the funds they compose were paid out from to the bank (after the settlement went through). So several most recent transactions may not show up right away, but they automatically will in the future.

Please follow these steps to connect Authorize.Net to Synder.
