Reconciling PayPal

What is PayPal?

PayPal is a financial service company that provides online payment solutions to its users worldwide. PayPal is the faster, safer way to send and receive money or make an online payment.

What is Order-to-Cash Reconciliation?

At a high level, it’s the process of matching customer orders and refunds to a payment, and ultimately to a payout in the bank account. This ensures that the data used to book key financial metrics can be accurately traced to a cash conclusion.
