    Default Match the items up

    Good afternoon everyone,

    I was wondering if I was using the following sentences well at work while I am working with Oracle system:

    • Theitem is matched up against a payment
    • Theitem is matched up with a payment


    Apart from "to match up" I know "to match off" and "allocate" but could you also use other verbs like "compensate" ? Again , if you use them what sounds more natural to you , "with" or "again"? If you know more ways to say the same , please let me know

    Many thanks

    You could also say "The item is matched with a payment."

    Apart from "to match up" I know "to match off" and "allocate" but could you also use other verbs like "compensate" ? Again , if you use them what sounds more natural to you , "with" or "again"? If you know more ways to say the same , please let me know

    I do not think "match off" is good.

    Also I question allocate and compensate. They are not are synonomous with "matched".

    Other words with meanings similar to "matched": correlated; compared; coordinated
