How to align daily sales with payouts time zone on POS?

Hello! We recently switched to Shopify POS. It has been a struggle to line up the payouts to the daily sales for the accounting team. We noticed that Shopify bases each day on the UTC time zone instead of the time zone we are in. However, the daily sales reports are specific to the entire day in my time zone. The numbers don't add up. Payouts going into our account don't come anywhere close to matching what a daily sales total was.  Has anyone had success with this?

Hello, @Desserts.

 

Thank you for reaching out and bringing this to our attention.

 

I understand that the Shopify Analytics for your store isn't matching up with the daily sales report on the Shopify POS due to the time zone differences. To resolve this, you can try changing the time zone for your store located in the Store details settings.

Once you've resolved the issue with reporting for your accounting team, I'd love to hear more about your business and share some resources to help you get started. What kinds of products are you selling? Do you have a marketing plan prepared for your store?

The time zone is already correct for our store location. Changing this would not correct the issue. How can I change the payout schedules to follow my time zone?

Hey, @Desserts.

 

Thank you for following up!

 

Changing the timezone will change the time shown on the orders and they are reflected in the reporting on Shopify Analytics - which you can share with your accounting team. However, while there isn't a way to change the time zone from the transaction reports, you can schedule your payouts in the Shopify Payments settings. 

 

If you've any other questions on this topic, don't hesitate to let me know!

We are having this same issue.  We do not have an on-line store.  We have retail customers and open from 7 AM until 11 PM.  Shopify payment systemcuts off my end of the day at 7 PM. I need this changed to 11:59 PM.  With a 7 PM cutoff, my daily revenue and credit card revenue never match.  Therefore, I cannot reconcile to my z-out report.  This is a huge issue.  Please let me know how I can change credit card processing to 11:59 PM. Thank you!
