Not supported in Shopify integration by Xero

Shopify integration by Xero imports a summary of sales and purchases into Xero but does not account for sales tax in the US. Sales tax data will need to be downloaded directly from Shopify for reporting and filing.

There are some things this integration doesn’t do. Check with your accountant or bookkeeper if you're unsure whether this integration will meet your needs.

  • Sales tax
  • Invoices for each Shopify sales transaction
  • Inventory and Cost of Goods Sold management
  • Connection of multiple Shopify stores to a Xero account
  • Shopify stores and Xero accounts with different currencies
  • Automatic tax filing in multiple tax jurisdictions
  • Invoices showing customer (payment) details

Its okay but

The app works like it says for me, though I feel that it shouldn't be something that we have to pay extra for...

Sometimes works sometimes doesn't.

Just like the title sometimes works other times not. Or will make invoices that are the wrong amount which is difficult to use

Doesn't work

Pulls the data through to Xero with tax rate of 20% but then Xero actually calculates the invoice as it it's NO VAT so it's Xero that is failing to calculate the tax correctly. I've been back and forward with Xero support and all they say is it's a shopify setting which is not the case as to fix this I unreconcile the invoice is Xero, change the VAT rate to anything but 20%, save the invoice, edit the invoice again and change it back to 20%, save the invoice and then it calculates the VAT correctly. It's a pain in the backside. So much so I'm cancelling the subscription as I've found an alternative.
