I need to produce a report that shows customer sales and payments for returning customers.
Basically a statement of transactions that the customer can print off themselves or we can send our each month via email.
I would have thought an innovative platform would integrate an accounting package into the online facility.
It seem silly for an online store to duplicate all of the product skews, customers, payments and orders into both an accounting software and then also online store.
There must be an answer out there?
I am not aware of an extension that will give monthly statements, the biggest thing is that Magento does not have a Accounts Receivable function so you need this before you can give a statement. (Unless you just want a report for what they purchased in the past month)
Aheadworks has advance reports
Something like this from BoostMyShop
