PayPal import transactions
Banana has an import filter that allows you to directly import the PayPal transaction data into your accounting files.
The attached files are predefined with the accounts so that you can immediately start using it.
There are two template example files that you can download and open in Banana:
- Multi currency accounting with EUR as a Basic Currency
- Multi currency accounting with USD as a Basic Currency
Files suitable for
These example files are especially suitable in case you have PayPal transactions in different currencies and especially if you have set up your PayPal account to use and keep different currencies (see also PayPal template for normal Double-entry) .
The imported transactions will automatically be imported to the currency account, so that you can see all transactions separately and have a balance in the currency.
Even if you use another accounting software, you will find that is very efficient to keep a separate accounting in Banana and keep your PayPal accounting in it. Instead of recording all transctions in your accounting solution, you can keep a separated accounting in Banana and once a month or when needed, only record the summary movement for the period in your accounting solution .
