If you are lucky enough to receive payouts from GoCardless, you will know how much time it takes to account for them in FreeAgent.

Each payout is the net result of your customers' recent payments via GoCardless, fees deducted by GoCardless, and so on. To explain a payout in FreeAgent you need to log into GoCardless, look at the payments comprising the payout, see which GoCardless customer each payment was from, find or create matching contacts in FreeAgent, find or create invoices for those payments, settle the invoices with the correct amounts, and book the fees as bank payments. Phew!

DoubleAgent can now do all that for you. Simply connect DoubleAgent to your GoCardless account(s) and, er, that's it. DoubleAgent takes care of the rest.

We use this feature to automatically reconcile DoubleAgent's own customers' payments, which arrive as GoCardless payouts, in FreeAgent. It's a big timesaver.

You can read more about this feature in the docs.

It's easy to try out: you just need to click two buttons. If you don't like it, click another button. Simple.

Next will be automatic reconciliation of Stripe payouts.
