Lightspeed does not integrate with Xero.

Be warned, Xero does not natively integrate with Lightspeed. Lightspeed use a third party called Shogo, rebranded as Lightspeed Accounting, to extract the data from their crappy API, and then Shogo "integrates" with Xero. "Integrates" is being kind. It "integrates" in about the same way north as North Korea integrates with South Korea. It's totally inadequate; feature poor, impressively difficult to set up, not customisable, then buggy and unreliable. All the things you want in your accounts, right? Certainly do not pay extra for it - the only reason we use it is because there is no way to extract invoice numbers from purchase orders in Lightspeed. Why would you want invoice numbers, a tax requirement in every country that has a tax system, easily searched?? (which you cannot in Lightspeed or "Lightspeed Accounting" aka Shogo).

Integration is bad

Lightspeed is good on its own, but the integration with Xero is garbage. It works just more than 50% of the time for us, and has not been fixed in YEARS. Lightspeed violates a few basic accounting principles in the way it keeps its data, so pulling data out of Lightspeed requires spreadsheet manipulation. It is the worst software integration I have to work with.
