Shopify integration by Xero + Xero

When you integrate Shopify with Xero, the time taken to manually move data between your business apps is significantly reduced. Automatically syncing a summary of your daily sales orders and payments to Xero, the integration also helps you reconcile your actual payouts to give you visibility over fees, and other costs or discounts.

What the Xero and Shopify integration does:

  • Syncs your Shopify sales transactions to Xero automatically, including the option to import your previous 90 days worth of transactions (for users on a standard or premium Xero plan).
  • Allows you to control which of your payment gateways invoices are generated for to suit your needs.
  • Creates a daily summary invoice per payment gateway, without having to enter data manually.
  • Clearly breaks down invoices into sales/discounts/shipping/refunds/gift cards/fees.
  • Gives you the option to have these invoices paid into a clearing account, while you’re awaiting payment from Shopify payments or PayPal.
  • Allows you to add bank account details for reconciliation of Shopify payments and PayPal.

What the Xero and Shopify integration doesn’t do:

  • Creates invoices for each Shopify sales transaction.
  • Supports different rates of sales tax.
  • Manages inventory and Cost of Goods Sold.
  • Supports connecting multiple Shopify stores to your Xero account.
  • Currency conversion. The currency of your Shopify store must match your Xero account.
  • Support automatic filing of taxes in multiple tax jurisdictions.
  • Imports customer details

Continues to bill me after cancelling

Stay away from this app. Once downloaded, you quickly realise it is useless. You then delete the app and then they continue to bill you - without any obvious way to cancel these payments.

Waste of money - look elsewhere

When this integration was announced I was quite excited about the possibilities but put simply don't bother. First there's no free trial to see if this works in the way you expect it to - it doesn't. Second having been forced to sign up and pay this integration only brings in high level aggregated data with no detailed transactions (that's good for minimising Xero volume limits) which when you compare to competitor pricing that provide both detail and aggregation isn't value for money. The worst feature is that if you don't get the mappings correct from the start things like VAT will accumulate on a seperate withholding tax line and won't appear on your VAT return with no warning (other than an ask your accountant it's complicated) that this is an issue.
