In 2008 founders, Paul Grey and Ashley Schroder were struggling with their Amazon accounting. They worked out what was involved in proper accrual accounting for Amazon transactions. In 2010, this process was automated for their own Amazon business. In 2014, they realised if they were having this problem, millions of others would be experiencing the same difficulties. In 2015 their solution was redeveloped to be a professional-quality software product and launched it as A2X. Over the past 5 years, A2X has helped thousands of e-commerce businesses with their accounting. In 2019, after much anticipation and rigorous testing A2X launched the same reliable accounting solution for Shopify Stores. Using the expertise the A2X team has acquired over the past 10 years and with the help of accounting partners, A2X continues to develop both A2X for Amazon and A2X for Shopify to ensure all users are receiving the most valuable solution on the market.
What was the main problem you were trying to solve when you first developed A2X?
A2X was developed to provide e-commerce businesses with fast, accurate, automated and reliable accounting.
For anyone that has tried Amazon Accounting manually will understand the difficulties involved and just how time-consuming it can be only to get ‘round-about’ figures. At A2X we believe accurate financials should be available to every ecommerce business. This is why A2X is available for small sellers right up to the largest online businesses.
Amazon Settlement statements can include 100’s of different transactions, occurring in different time periods and multiple locations around the world. Amazon and Shopify pay its sellers in lump sums net of fees. Making it near impossible for accurate accrual accounting. Accurate financials are important so business owners have a picture of their businesses health and can make informed decisions from these numbers. There are only finite hours of the day and when trying to grow a business, owners do not want to be tied down trying to make sense of their numbers.
