I'm sure this would have been suggested before And I can't find it.

Two+eftpos payments received in one day.

Unable to match two to one?

Am I missing something?

If so please enlighten me.

Hi Everyone

The AccountRight browser interface allows users to select multiple transactions to match the one bank feed transaction to multiple recorded transactions.

In the AccountRight desktop application, you would want to complete this process through the Prepare bank deposit window and then use the Match functionality in Bank feeds.

I am surprised that this thread dates back to September 2013 and nothing has been done about it.  surely it can't be that hard to split the payment over two bank feed transactions.

I have a client using EFT - everything that comes through goes in as a lump sum sale at the end of the day.  However we have just linked up bank feeds, and the AMEX transactions are split out.  So instead of saving time, it's actually going to create more work as my client will need to enter the transaction over two entries.


Keen to see this resolved.

Hi - one of my retail store clients uses AccountRight Plus and Retail Manager.


At the end of each day in  Retail Manager, a "Cash Up" procedure is done, which results in  a general journal posted into AccountRight Plus, with a summary of the day's sales and the amount to be banked.


However my client might only have time to visit the bank once or twice per week, to deposit the cash takings.


So Thursday's Bank Feed Deposit might cover 3 RM summary receipts from Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.


>> Could there be an option in Bank Feeds, to match a deposit to multiple cash receipt entries, including journals from Retail Manager ?


>> Also, could there be a short video in teh Support Notes, to explain the difference between matching Bank Feeds and doing a Bank Reconciliation. Particularly to explain why the Reconciliation is essential and show that Bank Feeds assist, but don't replace, the bank reconciliation process.

P.S. for my client, we've had to manually reconcile these types of transactions, in the Bank Reconciliation screen.

This has left them "unallocated" in the Bank Feeds screen - so my client will have to right-click these lines and mark them as "Hidden", to clear them from the Current screen.

I find Bank feeds to be good but only does half the job.


Bank feeds needs the ability to pick multple entries in undespoited funds. 


This would be usefull for anyone who uses a eftpos machine. As we get a daily settlement with multple transactions in undeposited funds.


second part would be to actually record multple payments against 1 feed, this would be usefull when accepting direct debit from customers

I would like to know if this is still under considerations or if its been forgotten about?

This thread has been around since 2013? Is it still only under consideration ?


Please please please add

I am quite surprised too that this request has been around since 2013 and nothing has been done for it. Our business uses three different categories and when one transaction needs to be split into two categories I can no longer match the transaction in bank feeds.

We use MYOB and bank feeds. We receive weekly payments from customers by direct debit. The direct debit information appears on our bank statement as a single entry but it consists of a very large number of transactions from different customers. Therefore the individual receipts from each customer do not get picked up through the bank feeds so cannot currently be set up to record to customer accounts automatically. It would be too laborious to enter each direct debit individually and would also result in too many individual transactions on our bank statement so we don't really want to change the way they are processed. Currently the bank feed automatically allocates the total to undeposited funds and then there is the very laborious task of recording each individual receipt through undeposited funds. Surely there must be a way of uploading information from the bank so that the allocation to customers can be automated somehow? I have asked both the bank and MYOB but to no avail and as the volume increases I am getting more desperate.

I would like to see the option of being able to allocate 2 or more transactions in Bank Feeds.  Same would apply for Deposits or Spend Money.  

For instance in Spend Money, I pay our credit card off monthly with a cheque and some of that will include 4 or 5 "bills".  I make a "bill" payment for each bill and allocate it to the same cheque number for all of them, but then the bank feeds will only allow me to match it to one of those.  Is there a way around this to have 1 bank feed transaction allocated to more than one transaction in MYOB?

In sales, it would also be useful as we do all Eftpos transaction straight into our acccount....I know a way around this one would be to put into Undeposited funds then do a banking on Eftpos sales each day....but it would still be a good option to.


Any other thoughts on this?

The issue with allocation of spend money from cheque account to pay bill from a credit card transaction is just that. Technically the bill has been paid already. The goods are yours from the time you swipe the card or transmit the information. You now owe Visa or MasterCard. I would be using the credit card as a separate account and using spend or transfer money from the cheque account to pay off this account   Bank feeds will then match as they should

100% need to be able to match multiple invoices to one payment....almost all of our customers pay for their branch purchases in one head office makes a complete mess of everything / wastes a lot of time having to follow current inept procedures.

so this was suggested in 2013 - now in 2021 - why is this not available?  having upgraded from an old version - bank feed speeds things up.  why not kick it up to the next level.  being able to Find the 3 x eftpos transactions to match the bank feed grouped amount deposited would be soooooo quick.  instead you want us to key it as a bank deposit then go to that screen and force it to go as a lump sum to the bank account - longer keying/processing time.  I thought the point of elec bank feed was to speed up the process?  I then have to go and essentially perform a manual bank rec as i have some transactions matched and others not matched.  so your still performing the same process, it's just that some of the transactions are ticked.  if we could match them on the bank feed, we wouldn't have to check off transactions to see whats missing.  it would reconcile. Bingo! double time save!
