1) Setup QuickBooks for Reconciliation:
Step 1: Create a Bank Account named "Square Bank Account" (or name it as needed) in QuickBooks. This account will be used to record your Square sales & Square fees.
Step 2: CHECKING ACCOUNT/CURRENT ACCOUNT should not be used directly to record your Square sales as it will create numerous issues in reconciling the Square fees.
Step 3: Setup the bank feeds in QuickBooks or upload the Bank Statement in QuickBooks. The downloaded transactions will be available in the bank review section.
2) PayTraQer Setup
Step 1: Connect PayTraQer with your QuickBooks (How to?)
Step 2: Connect Square with PayTraQer (How to?)
Step 3: Configure the sync settings for Sales, Expense, Fees, Items & Payout (How to?).
Step 4: Record (Sync) the transactions from Square to QuickBooks (How to?).
While providing the settings, you need to select the same bank account ("Square Bank Account" or created Bank Account) for Sales, Expense, Fees, Items & Payout.
