Paypal - API's should bring in Gross fees and back out Paypal Credit Card fees


I am on SBCA and I have paypal synced as a bank account.

I have a $50 invoice sent to a customer.

Customer pays $50 from paypal (gross).

Paypal has $2 fees (expense).

Bank feed pulls in $48 (net).

As an accountant, I have to manually modify the $48 bank feed, and they have two components to it that need to be split out.

My ask: I want SBCA bank feeds to pull in and match with the $50 invoice (sitting in my A/R), and yet also record the $2 credit card fees. I want SBCA's API to sync with Paypal's API to pull the Gross amount (Paypal detail attached), to pull the fee into the split transaction line without having to modify it.

    Nous avons le même problème, les transactions importées via Bankin déduisent la commission de paypal, réduisant la transaction d'encaissement du cllient , ce qui pose problème pour associer avec la facture et reconcilier. Le relevé de Paypal contient bien 2 transactions séparées, une pour l'encaissement, l'autre pour la commission.
