Preparatory accounting with PayPal has never been so easy...

Connect PayPal with just a few clicks

With just a few clicks, you can connect your PayPal account to AccountOne. We'll take care of the rest for you together with your tax advisor. You can find out how easy the connection is in our helpdesk. We also provide your tax advisor with comprehensive onboarding support.

Fully automated data retrieval

Our API interface retrieves the data from PayPal several times a day and makes it available as accounting data on a monthly basis.

Matching with invoices

The payment transactions are automatically assigned to the invoices (provided the invoicing system is also connected to AccountOne). The fee items and payouts are also posted fully automatically.

100% DATEV compatible export

Our exports are fully batch processable. This means that no import profiles have to be created in the accounting department, but can be imported directly using the DATEV board tools.

Minimally invasive integration

AccountOne integrates into the existing API and tech stack without interfering with other systems.


Directly accessible via web browser without installation. 24/7 Up-to-Date!

The data can be retrieved fully automatically via API with just a few clicks. We have provided detailed instructions for this in the helpdesk.

Once the data from the payment service provider PayPal has been imported into AccountOne for accounting with DATEV, the system begins to assign the individual payment transactions to the corresponding invoices from the online store or the invoice (for SaaS). The assignment is made using special transaction identifiers that are already contained in the order data from the online store or the data from the invoice.

This assignment also makes it possible to address the correct debtor. It is therefore not necessary to intervene manually in DATEV.

If PayPal is already connected to DATEV, an additional connection to AccountOne is not necessary.

PayPal is handled like a separate bank account for accounting purposes in DATEV. This "fictitious" bank account is then used to post incoming payments from customers as well as the individual transaction-based fees and payouts to the correct bank account. This is comparable to the booking method of a cash register.

Payments to the bank account are posted via cash transit and match the incoming funds in the bank account at 100%. This enables easy reconciliation in DATEV.

AccountOne provides a DATEV-compatible CSV record for the payments from Stripe every month. This is regularly checked with the DATEV check tools and guarantees a smooth import to DATEV. In addition, our export to DATEV is batch processable.

You therefore do not have to create an ASCII import, but can use the DATEV board tools to read in the data. This prevents errors during import.
