Swiggy Reconciliation along with Charges Verification

Swiggy is an online platform for ordering food and delivering the food to the customer’s doorstep from different restaurants. It operates in hundreds of cities nationwide. It also has thousands of restaurants available to customers on its platform. Due to this, it has been able to garner a lot of users. Hence restaurants that sign up to make themselves available through Swiggy have to deal with a lot of transactions that happen through the platform.

Due to this, it becomes extremely necessary to verify all the order payments are done correctly. Plus, all the various taxes charged by Swiggy need to be checked too. For a restaurant to do this themselves might be very time-consuming since it is very difficult to analyze the various reports. Here, Cointab’s software could be helpful. It reconciles the Swiggy report, Urbanpiper report and the POS report with each other. From this, the software can find out if the payments made are correct.

Reports used for Reconciliations

Swiggy Annexure

It contains a record of all the orders placed on the Swiggy site, the Swiggy payout and coupon information.

POS orders

This is a record of the order details collected from the POS end.

Store master

This contains the commission rate to be charged on orders placed on Swiggy.

Swiggy Reconciliation Process

Cointab’s software reconciles POS with Swiggy so that company can find out how much of the amount is actually paid by Swiggy. The various charges like TCS, TDS, Commission, Packing and cancellation are also calculated by the software and then checked if they are rightly paid. Lastly, it checks how much of the settlement amount paid by Swiggy actually reaches the bank account.

These transactions are found in both the POS report and the Swiggy report. It means that these transactions are reconciled as the restaurant will receive payment for the orders fulfilled.

These transactions recorded in the POS report are also found in the Swiggy report. But Swiggy has paid the restaurant more than the bill amount.

Swiggy Charges

Swiggy charges the restaurant a couple of fees on every order placed and delivered on their platform. Since thousands of orders are placed every day, it is very hard for restaurants to keep track of whether the charges levied by Swiggy are correct or not. Hence Cointab can reconcile these charges and display the amounts charged; extra or less in the resultant report. Let’s take a look at every charge in detail.

Commission

For commission verification, Cointab reconciles the report given by Swiggy and the store master report. The Swiggy report consists of orders placed in the restaurant and the total Swiggy Service Fee. Since the merchant ID is not given in the Swiggy report it is taken from the file name. The store master report provides the commission rate on each order. Using these reports the calculation for the expected commission is found, using the formula given below.

Expected Commission = (Swiggy Platform Service Fee Chargeable On x Commission Rate) + Call Center Service Fees + Merchant Cancellation Charges.

Cointab’s software does the necessary calculations, reconciles the reports and presents the result as given below.

Commission Correctly Charged

Here the orders for which the right amount of commission is charged are shown. It means that the actual commission charged is the same as the expected commission value that we arrived at.

Commission Overcharged

Here the orders on which the commission charged show more than the expected commission value that we calculated are displayed. It means that extra commission is charged. This gets highlighted so that company can keep a track of these orders and get the amount reimbursed

Commission Undercharged

Here the orders on which the commission charged show less than the expected commission value that we calculated are displayed. It means that a lesser commission is charged. This is shown here so that company can keep a track of the amount underpaid and so that they can make the payment quickly.

TCS and TDS Verification:

Here, we verify is the TCS and TDS amounts charged on the orders are correctly charged or not. Swiggy charges TCS and TDS based on the platform service fee. It charges x % of the service platform fee. The same formula is used to calculate the expected TCS and TDS. The differences are calculated between the expected amount and the actual charges using the formula given below.

Difference(s) = Swiggy Platform Service Fee Chargeable On x 0.01 – TCS/TDS

After the calculations are made, Cointab’s software verifies the TCS and TDS amount. It displays in its result table the is the amounts charged are correct or not along with the overcharged and undercharged amounts.

TCS Correctly Charged

Here the software displays the orders for which the expected amount and the actual amount charged. Hence the restaurants were charged the right amount of TCS for these orders.

TCS Overcharged

Here the software displays the orders for which the expected amount is lesser than the actual amount charged. Hence the restaurants were charged an extra amount for these orders.

TCS Undercharged

Here the software displays the orders for which the expected amount is more than the actual amount charged. Hence the restaurants were charged a lesser amount for these orders.

TDS Correctly Charged

Here the software displays the orders for which the expected amount and the actual amount charged show the same. Hence the restaurants were charged the right amount of TDS for these orders.

TDS Overcharged

Here the software displays the orders for which the expected amount is lesser than the actual amount charged. Hence the restaurants were charged an extra amount for these orders.

TDS Undercharged

Here the software displays the orders for which the expected amount is more than the actual amount charged. Hence the restaurants were charged a lesser amount for these orders.
