PayPal Reporting has been one of the most requested feature by our users, and we’ve kept on adding new reports and features after its introduction in version 4.3 as a completely new dashboard dedicated to reporting. Users can now create a complete Financial, Sales, Subscriptions, Products and Countries Report within a matter of a couple of seconds. But it’s not limited to just what PayPal offers – PaySketch users can create PayPal reports for more than just 30 or 90 days. This has been one of the major limitation that PayPal has put in for its account holders when they try to create PayPal reports. Using the PaySketch Reporting dasbhoard, you can now create PayPal reports for any date range!
If you don’t have PaySketch installed already, then download a free copy to start with. Install and open PaySketch. Navigate to the Reporting Dashboard from the dashboard selection dropdown menu.
