Love your tool, thanks for taking the time to create it for everyone!
Problem: I exported data from PayPal carefully following the instructions. When I tried to import it into Tiller, I got this error:
“The importer does not recognize the uploaded file. Check that you are uploading a supported file type.”
Can you share the remapping templates or field names that the CSV importer tools uses for the all of the imports so that if something doesn’t work (eg I’m guessing Paypal may have changed their export format) it’s possible to troubleshoot / figure out what’s wrong/ fix the offending fields?
Just found the thread on this topic. Sorry, don’t know how to merge this post into the thread. Here is the list of fields that I get from Paypal. This is for a US Paypal Business account:
Date Time TimeZone Name Type Status Currency Amount Receipt ID Balance
Also, is it possible to use metadata/transaction identifiers on the basic csv import function if I create my own transaction IDs for each transaction?
If not, this would be a great and easy to implement feature. the functionality of avoiding duplicate transactions is one of the most valuable in your tool. It is pretty easy to create unique transaction IDs even if the financial institution doesn’t provide them. When I do it, I create some kind of a hash from the existing data that the financial institution does provide. Even something as simple for a hash as =date+amount*1000000 works pretty well assuming you don’t have multiple transactions on the same date with the same amount. Combining in more fields would make it work even better. In any case, it’s a lot better than doing it manually when you have to combine multiple input CSV files across multiple accounts.
