Matching items are determined based on:
- Matching supplier names
- Matching total amount
- Matching payment date (Match considers entries paid within 10 days of the document date, to allow for payment to be taken from the bank account).
When working in a Client Inbox, you may see black Bank and Green Match icons in the ‘Match’ column of Sage-integrated accounts.
This indicates that a matching transaction has been identified in the Sage Bank Feed. Hover your mouse over the ‘Match’ icon to review about your matching Sage transaction.
- Click into the Receipt
- Details page for the item. As the data already matches the Sage Bank Feed, you just need to review the Category field and any other tracking information.
- The ‘Payment’ section of the Receipt Details page will now display a ‘Bank Match’ screen. This prompts you to autofill the Payment Details so that the data exactly matches the Sage Bank Feed.
- Press ‘Autofill Payment’ and publish your item. It will now be present in the ‘Banking’ section of Sage, ready for reconciliation!
- Click the green ‘Paperwork Match’ icon.
- The document image will be automatically attached to the corresponding payment in Sage. We will not publish any data from Receipt Bank, as the payment already exists within Sage.
