Stripe is an online payment processing company. It accepts credit and debit cards payments, digital wallets, and bank transfers. As Stripe is a trusted platform by many users to process their payments, many large e-commerce businesses opt for Stripe as their payment gateway partner to facilitate online recurring payments on their website. Having a payment gateway partner that a majority of users are familiar with helps them make purchases without any issues.
To partner with Stripe as a payment gateway partner a certain fee and tax has to be paid to them for each payment processed. Since a huge volume of transactions is processed every day, the fee and tax amount charged could be incorrect for a few of the transactions. In order to avoid making a loss it is necessary to reconcile these transactions.
When reconciling data manually a lot of effort and time is spent by the finance team. To simplify this task an automated reconciliation system can be used. Cointab Reconciliation is one such software that can automate the reconciliation process completely to generate accurate results. It calculates the fees, tax and settlement amount and reconciles it with the invoice to display reconciled and unreconciled transactions with ease.
