Live connection

This option is available just for some Exchanges that ACCOINTIG.com supports. It’s the fastest way to import Exchanges data because you only need to click on “Connect Exchange”.  This connection allows reducing refresh times compared to API connection. It takes less than 10 minutes to get up to date in your transactions!


API

The API connection is less efficient than the live connection on refresh times. For instance, importing data from Binance takes around 15 to 30 minutes to get up to date. But this method is one of the most practical because updates are automatic. Just follow the instructions given on the import page.


File

The file option uses a report generated by your Exchange. Depending on which Exchange you’re connecting to, you’ll need more than one file to import your data.


Manually

This option is recommended to use in case the other options aren’t available. There are two ways to do this: with a form or a spreadsheet template.

  • Form: The form lets you append timely transactions. This method is perfect for traders that have about 1 to 2 trades per day. However, this way allows you to classify each transaction; first trade for swaps and the second one, for stacked coins, and so on.
  • Spreadsheet template:This way allows you to import a bunch of transactions into ACCOINTING.com. First, download the Accointing template and open it. Then, follow the steps appearing on the “READ ME” sheet to fill in your data. Once you finish, go to ACCOINTING.com and select your file and your timezone.Finally, if ACCOINTING.com doesn’t recognize a cryptocurrency, a pop-up appears saying what crypto is missing, so you search for the correct one and change it.Template tutorial
