How to match my bank statement transaction with PayPal reports?

When I download my bank transactions, PayPal entries look like this:

 

    PAYMENT TO PAYPAL AUSTRALIA 100...043

 

Where that number is 13 characters long.

 

However when I download my PayPal statements from PayPal, that number doesn't appear anywhere.

 

How can I accurately match transactions listed in my bank statements with transactions listed in PayPal statements?

 

Other than matching by transaction amount and the date range (which can be a day before or after) there doesn't seem to be anyway to do this.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Huzzahaha,

 

Thank you for your post. There isn't a unique identifier for the bank transactions to match up to the PayPal transfers. The amounts and approximate dates would be the only way to match things up.

 

I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
