    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?

    A client has just started using Vend. Finding integration to Xero good except for credit card payments. Vend sends through total credit card payments as one line item, but there are 2 deposits to the bank account, one for everything except Amex and one for the rest. Only way to reconcile in Xero is to click into the invoice, then click the payment link, and then select Options > Remove & Redo.Then, next to the statement line, please click on Find & Match, then select the relevant invoice, and then click Split to reconcile the part payment. As this happens most days, the bank reconciliation is hardly what I would call automatic. I appreciate that Vend write the integration but Xero do promote the app. Does anyone else have experience with this
