Manual entry or invoice / order

Use the Configurator to specify how SumUp transactions should be synchronised with bexio.

  • Manual entry
  • Invoice / Order



Manual entry
Go to "Actions" in the menu and import the transactions for your chosen date range. The transactions will be automatically booked to bexio under "Manual booking".


Invoice / Order
Transactions for invoices and orders are imported every 15 minutes.



If VAT is included in a SumUp transaction, this must be booked correctly in bexio. Specify the appropriate VAT rate (saved in bexio) for the transaction.



Credit account

Specify the credit account to which the SumUp transaction is to be booked.



Debit account

Depending on the payment method used for SumUp, the transaction can be booked to a different debit account. Specify at least one debit account. If you would like to post everything to one account, select it as the default account. Please note the recommendation under «Process and recommendation for accounting (invoice)».




Orders and invoices require a customer. Specify the customer that should appear on the invoice.




Process and recommendation for accounting (invoice)

This is an example:

  1. The amount paid via SumUp is CHF 45.
  2. The invoice is issued at CHF 45 and booked via the standard credit account of the bexio invoice setting.
  3. The invoice is automatically booked as paid & posted via the selected debit account (It is recommended to use a «transfer account» - this account must be created as a (cash-) system account. How?: Create bank/cash account).
  4. The credit will be credited as a bank entry of SumUp minus the fee (/commission) and will be collected in banking. e.g. CHF 43.87.
  5. This transaction can now be offset with the «transfer account».
  6. The remaining amount on the «credit account» (the fee/commission) can be booked either directly or (e.g.) at the end of the month with a manual entry.

It is recommended that you have the automatic entry, which posts the invoiced amount of CHF 45 in full, carried out via a transfer account. You can then offset this with the bank transaction CHF 43.87 and post the remaining amount of 1.13 (the fee/commission) immediately, or post the entire remaining amount manually at a later date.
