Reports needed for reconciliation:
Hopscotch Invoice Report
All the transaction order details between the seller and the marketplace are recorded in this report.
Hopscotch Payment Report
This report records all the transactions where the payments are done via the Hopscotch marketplace to the seller.
Hopscotch Debit Note
In case an order is returned or canceled the details of each such order are present in this report.
Only a few days after an order is delivered to the buyer do sellers receive payment. It is exceedingly challenging to keep track of these transactions because they occur at such a high rate every day. This procedure is crucial because, without it a seller would not even be aware of when and how he is losing money, let alone be able to take action to make up for it. The Cointab system facilitates this vital and challenging task. On the basis of this report, the system links the reports and creates a summary. This summary includes every order detail, including the item price, charges that were applied, and the amount of payment that was received. Following this, the summary is added up, and the findings are shown in a very readable style. For the seller, analysis is made simple by this.
The Result Displayed is as follows:
For reconciliation, the invoice amount is matched against the sum of the paid amount, the return to vendor amount, and the short shipment amount (which is when goods of a certain amount have not been delivered to the customer). These amounts are present in the payment report.
Invoice Amount = Payment Amount (Paid Amount + Return to Vendor Amount + Short Shipment Amount.)
The following results are calculated based on this:
Total Invoice amount
Total Transactions in the Invoice Report are recorded here.
Received proper amount against invoice
Using the above Formula the payment amount is equal to the invoice amount they are recorded here.
More Amount received against the invoice
The payment amount is more than the amount recorded in the invoice report.
Less Amount received against the invoice
When the payment amount is less than the invoice report amount it is recorded here.
For return orders the reconciliation is done using the debit notes. The return order amount is recorded in the payment report as return to vendor for which a vendor issues a debit note. This return to vendor amount is verified against the debit note amount to check if the proper amount is received for returns.
After the Payment reconciliation process bank reconciliation is an important process for reconciliation. Bank reconciliation is done to make sure that every payment sent by Hopscotch is received correctly in the bank. Sometimes due to some errors technical or humane, payments either don’t get credited or are inaccurately credited. If this happens for a few transactions every day it can amount to huge losses for a seller. This important process is also precisely done by the system. The system links the settlement report with the bank statement and matches every transaction amount and verifies whether payments are received accurately or not.
