When to Reconcile

The reconciliation activity should be ongoing as per either the payment cycle in case of huge order volumes or as per the calendar month, in the first week of the subsequent month.

In eVanik we just need to set our filters and download the R2R reports and raise tickets for claiming. It's those small little details that, as a seller, make all the world of difference.
