Reconciling between MSA and PayPal

We recommend that monthly you reconcile your MSA and PayPal accounts to insure that all transactions are posting between the 2 services.  

There are 2 exports you'll need for this:  1 from MSA and another from PayPal.  See below on how to get these exports.  

Once you have these exports, you can merge or use a lookup in Excel to compare.
