Why is ecommerce accounting challenging?

Ecommerce payouts are different from traditional retail sales payments.

In traditional retail sales, the seller generally receives the money directly from the buyer. That way, there’s a clear connection between where the money has come from and what it was for.

This isn’t the case for ecommerce sales.

Ecommerce businesses receive payments in batches from their sales channels. This causes an array of accounting complications.

Accounting for ecommerce transactions is difficult because:

  1. All transactions are lumped together into batched payouts.

  2. There’s no clear timeline or cutoff for payments. One payout could cover multiple days, weeks, or months. It could also cover partial periods. For example, a day could be split into separate payouts.

  3. The payout doesn’t just cover sales. It could also include tax collected, shipping income, discounts, refunds, fees, disputes, pending payouts, and many other transaction types.

  4. One payout might cover multiple countries. We need to apply different tax rates.

  5. Transaction types aren’t always labeled correctly. It becomes difficult to identify them if they change or someone adds a new one.

To do correct accrual accounting, financial reporting, and tax compliance, we need to break down the batch payouts from sales channels. These sales channels include Amazon, Shopify, and other gateways. You need to break them down into the correct transaction types, time periods, tax rules, and locations.

You might think you can get this information from your sales channel. However, it’s not so straightforward. Sales channels generate reports that contain a lot of uncategorized raw data. Think of a spreadsheet with thousands and thousands of rows.

So, the ecommerce merchant has to try and split out the data manually in a spreadsheet.

At worst, this is near impossible. At best, it’s incredibly time-consuming and error-prone.

Even if the ecommerce merchant manages to get the numbers close, they would then need to create manual entries in their accounting system every time they receive a payout. And they would still have a residual balance that isn’t accounted for.

When it comes to paying tax, making financial decisions, calculating margins, or even valuing your business, close enough isn’t good enough.
