✌️ Fully automate your payroll management with PayFit!

With Connect, our mission is to offer you the best possible experience when it comes to managing your finances, accounting and even your payroll processing! With PayFit x Qonto, paying your employees has never been so easy!


⏱ Pay all your employees in a few seconds flat!

Before this integration, you had to prepare the transfer orders for your employees in PayFit, download them, then import them into your Qonto app to be processed. All of these steps are maddening; plus they cost you time and increase the risk of entry errors.

By connecting your Qonto current account with your PayFit app, you save valuable time. From just one platform, you can pay up to 400 employees in a single click, no matter the amount.

By reducing the time lost completing multiple tasks, you also reduce the margin of potential error. Now, it’s impossible to mix up an employee’s IBAN or salary amount!

🔑 A simple and secure connection

This integration is available to Standard and Premium users.

To synch your accounts, go to your PayFit app, then connect your pro account by entering your Qonto username and password, and voilà! Yes, it’s that simple.

If you have multiple Qonto current accounts, in PayFit you can choose the IBAN for the account you wish to use to pay your salaries.

Like all the tools connected to your Qonto account, PayFit collects only the data required to automate a task. All of your data is protected and encrypted, and your login information is never shared.

🧐 Pay your employees with a single click: how does it work?

  1. Go to the PayFit app
  2. Click on Pay salaries
  3. Confirm the amount
  4. Enter your Qonto password, then follow the security steps, and you’re done!

✌️ Keep in mind: Only a Qonto Admin can initiate a payment from PayFit to be submitted.

Psst: The PayFit x Qonto integration will initially be made available to companies registered in France, then in Spain. We will keep you informed of any updates!

We would like to thank our partner, PayFit, for this wonderful collaboration to help you boost your business.

Not a PayFit customer? Good news! PayFit offers the first two months of the subscription to Qonto customers.

👋 Say goodbye to paper receipts!

Is your drawer stuffed with receipts and expense reports? Does it take forever to process them? We’re committed to making your life easier—and paperless. 😉


🤩 We digitize your receipts and legally certify them

As you might know, Qonto has made it possible for some time now to digitize your receipts directly from your app. One key advantage of this feature is the automatic VAT detection. But until now, you were required to keep the paper receipts as legal proof in the event of an audit.

In the past, employees were legally obligated to keep the original paper copies of their receipts and invoices on file as proof in case of an audit.

We’re not going to lie, paper can be a real hassle. Receipts pile up and get lost, and finding the one you need, when you need it, is a constant struggle. Not to mention the deterioration. (We all have that 6-month-old receipt with the ink completely worn off 🙄).

You finally have a reason to celebrate! With digital receipt certification, also known as “probative value certification”, the digital receipts on Qonto, as of today, carry the same value as the original paper version.  They are carefully certified and stored securely.

🙌 What does this mean for you?

The process for submitting expense reports is now simplified, and all your official documents are centralized in your account.

And your admins and accountants will enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having immediate access to the receipts associated with each transaction. Plus, in the event of an audit, they can rest assured that all their legal bases are covered.

📱 Everything is certified and stored with a single scan

How does it work? Easy: after each payment, simply scan the paper receipt using your smartphone and connect it to the associated transaction in your Qonto mobile or web application.

Be sure to verify our easy-to-follow recommendations to ensure the scanned copy is true to the original. We will use this scan to certify the document automatically with a legal stamp.

🚀 You're on your way to full receipt digitization! You could already scan your receipts and detect the VAT automatically; now, you can have them certified by public institutions.

Are you impressed? With Qonto, expense reports will never be the same!

Speak to you very soon,

The Qonto team

🖌[EDIT] You probably noticed it when uploading a receipt in your app, this feature is available for the Standard plan and higher. Solo members still have to keep the paper version of their receipts, as they aren't certified. Upgrade now to enjoy it!

💡Categorize your supplier expenses in no time at all

No one likes repetitive manual tasks, even when they’re for a good cause. That’s why, to simplify your life even further, you can now add a VAT rate and custom labels for each supplier, to avoid having to enter them manually for each transaction. Smart, right?


🧙‍♀️ Complete your VAT rates and labels, as if by magic

Qonto has designed a new Suppliers section to save you time. How? By automating the entry of some details. No more going over your expenses one by one. Simply assign a personalized label and VAT rate to each of your suppliers. For each transaction, the VAT rate and labels you’ve added will be applied automatically.

So you’ll save precious time and are sure you haven’t made any mistakes. You also stay in control if needs be, as you can still adjust your information per transaction. There’s really no downside!

📈 Improve your finance monitoring and optimize your accounting

You can now categorize all your expenses, and the best part is it’s simple and takes no time.

Effortlessly add the VAT to your transactions, and make your VAT declaration easier than ever.

You can also check out a very practical function to monitor your expenses: custom labels. Choose your own system to categorize your transactions and organize them according to your needs: by project, by team, by country, etc. You can even use it for your accounting by adding specific codes!

🤓 How does it work and who can use it?

In the new Suppliers section you’ll find the list of all the beneficiaries of your transfers. Add their VAT rates and personalized labels now to save time on your next transactions!

Do you have a Standard or Premium account? Go to your Suppliers section now and start automating your VAT entry and personalized labels.

🚀 Ready, set, pay... Up to 400 beneficiaries in a single click with bulk transfers!

Like an elite-level sprinter, your business is taking off, and your teams are expanding every day. Like your business, Qonto is constantly evolving and adapting to help you send an ever-increasing number of transfers, but always with just one click.

Enregistrement de l’écran 2020-11-20 à 12.34.14.gif

🤩 Expanding the bulk transfer feature

Along your growth trajectory, you may have dreamed of “Citius, Altius, Fortius” (“faster, higher, stronger”). With the optimization of the bulk transfer feature, your dreams could indeed come true!

As a Qonto user, you already have the option to send bulk payments from an .XML or .CSV file, without having to enter each transfer manually.

So what’s new today?

Whether paying your suppliers or employees, you can now send up to 400 transfers in a single click (compared to 200 before), either from Qonto or from a Connect tool (such as Pennylane for example). We heard you: those files were causing some major headaches!

Psst: Your .XML transfer orders file will still need to comply with the ISO 20022 format in order to be processed. Just to be safe, download our template at the bottom of this article.

Click here, for an example .CSV file.

🎁 What are the advantages?

When you have multiple transfers to send, processing them in groups of 200 is a lot of work. By increasing the number of payments in bulk transfers, we’ve made it possible to double your transfers without doubling your efforts.

  • Save time: by paying more beneficiaries in fewer steps, but also by scheduling your transfers ahead of time if necessary. You are going to love having control over how you spend your time.
  • Avoid errors: by having all your transactions in the same file to send hundreds of secure transfers. Why? Since you have fewer steps to complete, you reduce the risk of making a data entry mistake.
  • Enjoy better compatibility and coherence with the management tools you use to pay your suppliers or employees.

💫 How can you send 400 transfers simultaneously?

Just as you did before:

  1. Go to the Transfers section of your Qonto app, then click on Bulk transfer in euros.
  2. Upload the .XML or .CSV file you prepared or exported from another tool.
  3. Indicate the type of expense and schedule this bulk payment for a later date if needed.
  4. Review the information entered and submit the payment. The total amount is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

☝️ Good to know: Unfortunately, the invitation does not include a +1. If your file contains more than 400 transactions, the bulk transfer will not work.

We sincerely hope this optimized feature helped you! 💜
