Build your own bundle and save! Purchase exactly which spreadsheets you need to create an amazingly streamlined bookkeeping system for your creative enterprise.
Each bundle includes the following:
1. A Seller Spreadsheet
Your seller spreadsheet is basically your bookkeeping hub. Choose a seller spreadsheet for whichever venue at which you make the majority of your sales – Etsy, PayPal, Shopify, Amazon, Square, or Squarespace. You can always manually enter sales from other sources (or use an import add-on). Your Seller Spreadsheet is designed to house ALL your streams of income in one place, and has spots to enter all your business expenses, receipts, and purchases. Read more about each seller spreadsheet here.
2. An inventory spreadsheet
Physical inventory has its own special set of rules and tracking needs, so we’ve got a special super-powered spreadsheet to help you deal specifically with inventory. Each Paper + Spark inventory spreadsheet will assist you with tracking your inventory costs, setting a profitable price point for your goods, and calculating everything you need at tax time regarding your inventory.
There are currently three inventory spreadsheets available – one for handmade sellers, one for resellers or retailers, and one for those who sell vintage items.

3. An import add-on (optional)
Sell in a second venue other than the Seller Spreadsheet you choice? Now’s your time to quickly & painlessly import your sales and fees from an other source. Grab an import add-on for a discounted price and easily get ALL your sales in one place. Read more about the import add-on options here.
Please note that I do not recommend using the PayPal import add or PayPal Seller Spreadsheet in conjunction with a Shopify Seller Spreadsheet or Shopify import add on. This combination will result in potentially double counting your Shopify PayPal sales.
Your bundle purchase also includes access to the Accounting Accountability Club & monthly email checklists.
Why a Paper + Spark spreadsheet?
Traditional bookkeeping software is made with accountants in mind. It’s expensive (and generally requires a monthly subscription payment), bulky, and oftentimes more complicated than a micro business like yours needs. It’s made for any and all types of small businesses, and not specific to YOUR business needs as a handmade biz owner or e-commerce seller. When your bookkeeping software is too complicated, too vague, and support or in-plain-English instruction is lacking, you tend to procrastinate on using it. Not updating your books consistently means severe stress once year end or tax deadlines hit.
Spreadsheets are powerful but simple tools. Partner a well-crafted spreadsheet file designed by an accountant intimately acquainted with e-commerce with clear, understandable instructions and you’ve got a formula for bookkeeping success. You get everything you need to feel empowered by your numbers, and nothing you don’t need.
Paper + Spark has been selling spreadsheets since 2015. We currently support thousands of makers and creative entrepreneurs in doing their books and understanding their money. Our spreadsheets have received countless rave reviews from shop owners. No other bookkeeping solution out there offers our level of step-by-step guidance & support. We also stay up-to-date on e-commerce reporting and platform changes.
With a Paper + Spark spreadsheet, you’ll pay a one-time fee for lifetime access to your files and support. We provide any future year files and updates for free, forever, via the account you create at checkout. You can always reach out in the Accounting Accountability Club, or via DM or email, and get answers to your spreadsheet & bookkeeping questions.
