Tips and tricks on the Clover integration

Note 1. Synder currently imports gross amounts from Clover, 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 Clover clearing to your business checking account to zero out the clearing account and reconcile checking.

Note 2. Synder mirrors real money flow in your accounting by recording live sales in the Clearing account (Clover (required for Synder) in your books) that Synder creates automatically during the initial setup.

Note 3. Synder protects your data with two flagship features: duplicate detector and rollback. You can give yourself peace of mind knowing that all the power is in your hands and your accounting is secured.

Note 4. Get familiar with the software in our 3 Must-Watch beginner guides and Features of Synder taking your experience to the next level to find out how Synder can help you automate your bookkeeping.
