How do I resolve duplicate entries from Paypal?
Scenario 1: I have a credit card account and PayPal account both linked to Mint. I use Paypal to buy a new gadget online (for security) and select the credit card as my payment option. The transaction shows up twice on my Mint Transactions, one under the credit card account, the other on my PayPal account.
Scenario 2: My bank checking account and my PayPal account are both linked to Mint. My HOA only accepts payments via PayPal. I pay them $150 every month via PayPal, using PayPal Credit as the payment option. I then pay off the PayPal Credit balance at the end of the month from my checking. I get two transactions, one from my checking account to PayPal for $150, and the other from PayPal to the HOA for $150.
So far I've been manually marking/hiding duplicates but that's gotten to be too time consuming. When you add your PayPal account it adds PayPal Credit as well, no way to add one without the other. Hopefully Mint can figure out how to detect duplicates coming from PayPal, otherwise I may un-link my PayPal account. I'll lose a little bit of budgeting data on some occasional transactions but I won't have to worry about duplicates.
