Amazon Pay is a payment services provider application owned by one of the largest companies in the world i.e. Amazon. It provides all the payment-related functions like money transfer, bill payment, recharge, loan payment and insurance etc. This facilitates all these payment services but it started with the intention of giving amazon account users the opportunity of making bill payments easier for them on any shopping site. Since many people are Amazon users, a large number of other online businesses find it necessary to offer AmazonPay as a payment option. Thus, many businesses partner with Amazon Pay as a payment gateway partner.

However, Amazon Pay requires a fixed fee and tax to be paid on each payment in order to access its services. It could be exceedingly challenging for businesses to track the fees and taxes incurred for each order. And also keep track of the final amount settled in the bank. So, to verify these payments, our automated reconciliation is very helpful. Our software verifies the amounts charged and then shows how much is overcharged or uncharged or if the amount paid is wrong. This in turn will help you avoid the unnecessary extra fee or tax payments.
