Synder’s Detailed Breakdown of Stripe Invoice Statuses
|Draft||These invoices will be imported into Synder as “Pending.” Once the invoice is finalized (e.g., sent to the customer), Synder will sync the invoice to your accounting company.|
|Open Invoices||Stripe invoices in the “Open” status will be synced to your accounting company as open invoices. When a payment is received for an open invoice, Synder will sync the payment and close the outstanding invoice in your accounting system.|
|Paid Invoices||Stripe invoices marked as “Paid” will be synced to your accounting system as closed invoices with payments. Synder will match the payment with the respective invoice and mark it as paid in your accounting company.|
|Uncollectible Invoices from Stripe||Stripe invoices categorized as “Uncollectible” will be synced as open invoices into your accounting system. Synder will ensure that these open invoices are reflected accurately there.|
|Voided Stripe Invoices||If a Stripe invoice is voided, Synder will roll back the corresponding entry from your accounting system. The voided invoice will be removed from there to maintain accurate records.|
|Canceled Stripe Invoices||Synder will also roll back any canceled Stripe invoices from your accounting company.|
