iSeller provides the Journal V2 add-on as an upgrade from the Journal V1 add-on. Journal V2 provides better recording efficiency than Journal V1, where each order entry will be entered into a Sales Invoice so that adjustments to account names (Chart of Accounts) and inventory stock will be automatically deducted when the product is sold.

This is useful to facilitate your store's financial transactions more practically and accurately. In addition, you can integrate with the Journal V2 add-on for various transactions that occur on iSeller so that they can be managed accountingly.

By activating the Journal V2 add-on, you will get some of the benefits and integration features of this add-on.

Some of the benefits obtained from the integration between iSeller and Journal V2:

  • Review Profits on Sales Live: Cost of goods sold reports posted directly to the Journal can be reviewed instantly when products are sold.

  • Bank Reconciliation Made Easy: Journal uses daily sales totals from iSeller to track payments that go into your account.

  • Automatic Synchronization of Daily Sales: Daily sales, accounts payable and receivable, total payments, inventory orders, refunds and customer information can be synchronized automatically to the Journal.

  • Manage Cash Safely: You can easily see the discrepancy between the money deposited in the Bank and the total daily cash sent to the Journal starting from cash payments, petty cash withdrawals, and exchange rate movements.

Some of the main features of the integration between iSeller with Journal V2:

  • Automatically Import Products: You can import products with SKU numbers that have not been registered in the Journal. Product stock will also be synchronized automatically.

  • Product Synchronization: You can compare the stock of products listed on iSeller with those listed in the Journal by synchronizing products.

  • Order Sync: You can sync orders that occur in iSeller to Journal by using various order sync options.

  • Transfer In and Transfer Out: The journal will make stock adjustments to any changes in inventory that occur. Changes in inventory stock from the transfer of goods from outlets to outlets (transfer out) occur automatically, while the transfer of goods from suppliers (transfer in) needs to be done manually.
