Remember to save your mappings!
Once you have mapped your accounts and taxes for Amazon transactions, you are ready to review and import your first Invoice to your accounting system.
If you make mapping changes, be sure to save your mappings again. You'll need to refresh your settlements to update the mappings in each settlement before re-sending them to your accounting system.
Well done, you've mapped your Account Types in A2X!
