Tips and tricks on the Stripe integration

Note 1. Synder parses financial paydowns, adjustments, transfers – almost every transaction type from Stripe.
Note 2. Stripe payments made in the test mode will not show up in Synder. Syncing your live data from Stripe with Synder, you will always have an option to undo any action and the system will skip all the duplicates if you try to sync the same data twice.
Note 3. If your Stripe is linked to an eCommerce store, connect both your Stripe and eCommerce account to get all order and payment details synced to your books.

    Stripe net amounts must be payouts. Synder syncs both your payouts and your sales with fees. So after syncing them all, you can reconcile your Stripe account with the clearing account in QBO, where we sync your sales, fees and payouts.
