Add Vendors or Customers
Adding a vendor or customer allows you to create additional customers and vendors in QuickBooks. In addition to creating a new vendor or customer in eZ Account Import, you can also create an Alias for the vendor or customer at the same time. Aliases let you create easy and recognizable names commonly used by your company. When an Alias is found when eZ Account Import reads an online banking export file, a pre-defined payee and account is automatically pre-populated in the Import Transactions window.
By creating aliases, you are not required to have a one for one match between online transactions and vendors & customers within your accounting software. It also eliminates the issue when vendors add transaction identifiers, such as store number or date, to transactions.
