What is Xero?

Xero is a small business accounting software established in 2006. This solution can be accessed from any device that is connected to the internet. Xero integrates with over 500 applications and tons of powerful features. This enables businesses to view cash flows, transactions, and account details from any location. Bank transactions are entered and encrypted automatically. Xero’s online invoice feature helps track expenses, keep bills and improve relationships with suppliers.

How to integrate Xero with Magento 2

Method 1: Use APIs to Integrate Magento Xero

An API, or Application Programming Interface, serves as a software mediator between two applications, enabling the retrieval, addition, deletion, and synchronization of data. This system eliminates the need for developers to manually code interactions, ensuring swift and reliable two-way communications.

Developers can employ the Magento API to seamlessly integrate invoices and payment transactions with Xero. One approach involves obtaining the Magento API, extracting and generating data, and aligning it with the Xero API to replicate individual transaction details. This streamlines the duplication of Magento (Adobe Commerce) invoices and their alignment with the Xero Dashboard.

While the API integration approach is intricate and time-consuming, we are here to explore simpler alternatives. A straightforward method for Magento Xero Integration is elaborated in the following section.

Method 2: Use In-App Marketplace Integrations to Integrate Magento Xero

Seamlessly managing Magento (Adobe Commerce) and Xero is simplified through Magento Marketplace Integrations. The marketplace offers a diverse selection of third-party Xero Integrations, including those from Adobe Bronze Solution Partners.

One of them is Zapier, an online tool designed to facilitate the seamless connection of various web applications, enabling the transfer of data and automating processes. It achieves this by automatically integrating and synchronizing actions across a wide range of apps and software used within your company. This automation allows for the automatic execution of recurring processes, streamlining workflows and enhancing efficiency.
