Punch-In combines the convenience of the Amazon Business checkout with the ease of the Compleat approval process. That’s two great purchasing experiences seamlessly rolled into one!
It’s easy to set up, enjoyable to use, & ensures every single Amazon Business purchase you make is saved, approved & ready for invoice matching in Compleat.
Here’s how Punch-In works:
1. Log in to Amazon & add items to your basket.
2. Go to the checkout & tick the Punch-In option.
3. Choose your delivery address & payment details.
4. Click Submit for approval.
5. Compleat appears! Code your Amazon order & submit it to a workflow.
When the order is fully approved in Compleat, that’s the green light for Amazon Business to complete your order. Later, when your Amazon Business invoice flies into Compleat, you can feel confident that the original approved order is waiting to be matched to it.
This guide shows you how to set up Punch-In for your Compleat company.
