Technically good, poor reconciliation

The integration works well technically. But a register closure at the end of the day is posted as an invoice that is marked as paid (with payments coded to each account you configure for that payment type). But when it comes time to reconcile the bank feed for merchant settlement payments and cash deposits you can't match them in Xero. You have to go and remove all the payments from the register closure invoice first. Working out what bank feed items map to what portions of the single invoice, and code them correctly, is a nightmare.

Avoid VEND

Product Good, but after care/support absolutely shocking, quick to take your money, but after that I wish you the very best of luck...

Just wondering what all the fuss is about really. If everyone thinks Vend is so good for Xero, would you mind explaining what to do when my client needs help (for example) getting the closing transaction to always match the bank feed? I've been talking to Vend support. They said they have great phone support I can access, but they won't advise on things like account synchronisation between Vend and Xero (apparently an accountant must do that on their own). They also won't send anyone to your door. I quizzed them on this and at first they said they had partners who could help. So I pushed them further on that until they conceded that they could only offer phone support. What happened to the good old days when people actually cared about company reputation?
