Connecting to Xero
After on-boarding your account with Ecominate, it is now time to link your accounting system. Ecominate integrates with either Xero and QuickBooks and allows users to reconcile amazon settlement bank statements against summarized transaction invoices or journal entries. Before integrating with your accounting system it's important to notice that without doing so, you will not have access to the settlement integration, COGS, or accounts mapping pages, or any other related pages that will be added in the future. Instead you will be shown this screen:
Step 1: After clicking the "Connect to Xero" button, you'll be taken to the following screen where you must sign in to your Xero account that is connected to the bank account receiving the Amazon settlement deposits.
Step 2: Click the "Allow Access" button, this will give Ecominate access to your chart of accounts and the ability to send journal entries to your accounting system.
3. Click the "Connect" button to finalize the process and begin pulling in your settlement reports from Amazon as a well as your chart of accounts.
4. Finally you after clicking connect you'll be taken to this waiting screen that will be removed once all of your relevant data from Amazon and Xero has been fetched and parsed.
