Definitely not worth the trouble of integrating with Xero

The integration, using Amaka, has changed three times within the last year - the last two times without notification. The integration creates gl accounts within Xero - to which I strenuously object - without notification or permission. It does not report sales tax correctly either. After the initial setup, there is no documentation on how to use nor how data is being placed in the new accounts and what to do with them. Finally, we killed the integration. It is much, much easier to run monthly reports and enter data into a worksheet to calculate manual journal entries. What a shame. Instead of making life easier, it makes it more difficult.

Half broken feed

The feed from Square continues to export the fees and bank transfers to Xero, but stopped exporting the daily invoices. Very frustrating experience.
