Back in the day, they used to use stuff like shells and beads to grease the wheels of commerce. Then came money (easier to stick in your pocket than a herd of goats) and checks (I'll give you a piece of paper with my name on it and you'll give me all that cool stuff). More recently, when so much of what we buy and sell is done online, many people have adopted PayPal as the default payment conduit of choice. It's a convenient way to send- and receive money, and can help you keep track of all those transactions.

AnalyzePal is a tool that helps you to make sense of it all. Sure, they've got paid versions (you can probably use PayPal), but we're talking about the free one here. You can list your customers and transactions, as well as track your PayPal activity for the month by revenue. It all seems pretty safe as far as your data is concerned, since the app never logs into your PayPal account. Indeed, you have to log in the normal way and download a .CSV history file; it's this file that AnalyzePal slices and dices on your local machine, so there's no risk of compromised login credentials or any other such foolishness.

You can run AnalyzePal on any system that supports the Adobe AIR framework (version 1.5.3 or better is required). Needless to say, you'll also need a PayPal account (verified or not—makes no difference) if you want data to analyze.

  1. Program sounds awesome. Unfortunately, the link goes to some site about casino bonuses and it’s so jumbled, it doesn’t make any sense.

    Yow, it looks like the site got hacked between the time the squirrels wrote this and it was published.
