Common issues with importing transactions from CoinSpot
One issue you’ll notice when using the CoinSpot API is that it does not sync bonuses such as referral and signup bonuses. If they’re not that many, you can add them manually. Alternatively, you can use the CSV import option.
CoinSpot separates the transactions into buys/sells and sent/received. That means users have to do multiple CSV imports for all their data to produce accurate reports. Also, when importing your CSV files, you may experience problems with timestamps. To counter this, you can request CoinSpot to send you an updated CSV file of all your trades and transactions.
