Reconciling online invoice payments

What happens when a customer pays you

When a customer makes an online payment, it'll automatically be recorded in your MYOB business, and the associated invoice will be closed off. This is known in MYOB Business as auto-reconciliation. You'll receive an email notification about the payment, and the payee also receives an email confirming that they've paid.

How the payment is recorded in MYOB

All credit card, debit card, Google Pay and Apple Pay payments will be deposited into the bank account you nominated for customer payments when you set up online invoice payments. The payments are automatically recorded in the ledger accounts you chose when you set up online invoice payments.

What matching a payment looks like

When the bank transactions come into your software (either via bank feeds or an imported bank statement), those payments will be automatically matched with the invoices.

If your customer payments aren't automatically matching to invoice payments in MYOB Business, you may need to turn auto matching on. Go to Banking Bank rules and select the option Automatically match bank transactions to MYOB bills and invoices.

What amounts makes up a payment?

To see a break down of the payments, you can run the Transaction details report (Reporting menu > Reports > Online invoice payments tab). You can use this to help you match grouped payments in your bank feeds to invoice payments in MYOB Business. Learn more about how matching works.

The amount you receive may be different to the amount on the invoice due to fees and charges.
