Accounting Tips for E-Commerce Business Owners

When running an e-commerce business, one will want to keep things in order to avoid problems. Think about it, with accounting mistakes, one can end up getting audited and dealing with local and state governments. On the other hand, when running a tight ship and keeping things in order, it’s possible to avoid long-term problems. With this in mind, here are three tips for e-commerce business owners.

Weekly reconciliation: First and foremost, when reconciling the numbers, one should add up the credit card processing and merchant account receipts. Then, one can get a better look at his or her weekly profits and losses. Not only that, when doing it this way, it’s possible to spot any minor issues that will cause bigger ones down the road. Remember, whether using a program or doing it via Excel, one will want to keep looking at their numbers.

Use one credit card and bank account: If possible, when running a business, one should use one credit card and one bank account. Then, when running the numbers and looking at sales, one will not struggle. Not only that, by using one credit card, a company can maximize rewards. Think about it, when trying to look at multiple bank and credit card statements, one will waste a lot of time and effort. Not only that, when paying for things like credit card processing and merchant accounts, one can avoid other issues by using a credit card.

Hire a professional accountant: Without a doubt, when running an e-commerce site, one will struggle to keep things in order and under control. Since the average hourly employee or owner won’t have all the know-how, it’s wise to use a professional. Then, he or she can spot any issues that are likely to arise. Furthermore, with the help of a professional, a company can save money on taxes. Remember, the government takes a lot, and it’s up to an e-commerce site owner to do his or her best to recover their funds. Otherwise, one will end up paying a massive tax bill at the end of the year.

When running an e-commerce site, one can save themselves plenty of trouble if they take the time to understand basic accounting principles. Luckily, in the long run, after developing a solid and viable strategy, one will end up keeping their books in order and under control.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.
