Overview

Fooman Connect: Xero

Fooman Connect is a comprehensive and convenient integration which is packed full of features. All customers who order before 31 July 2015 will receive free installation and set up.

Key Benefits

Automatically export Magento data to Xero
Export Magento orders, customer data, items and credit notes to Xero. Simply log into Xero and all your Magento data is there. All that's left for you to do is to approve and reconcile the invoice or credit memo with bank, credit card or paypal payments in Xero.

You’ll save hours of wasted time exporting data manually, and avoid errors from manual processes. This extension is a lifesaver as your sales volumes increase!

Fine grained options put the control in your hands
You control the automatic export process - choose which order status will trigger the export, and choose to manually export or exclude orders. It's an easy way to stay on top of your business financials.

Easy customer record management
Invoices are matched to existing customer records, and new customer records are automatically created.

Track your Magento sales in Xero
Use a tracking category for your online sales to easily run reports in Xero. Track how your online sales perform against other channels. Match different revenue streams to the appropriate Xero account (configurable on a per store or individual product level).

Display Xero payments in Magento
Once you have reconciled a payment in Xero, the payment will be displayed in Magento. This is a great way to streamline your accounting by keeping financial information up to date in both Magento and Xero.

Currency and tax rate options
Backend options give you control over things such as multiple currencies and tax rates. Choose to export orders in base currency or order currency. Use Xero tax rates in Magento to keep administration simple.

Easy to use and convenient
Fooman Connect is easy to configure, and you control the settings directly from your Magento backend. Unlike other integrations, there’s no fuss with logging in to another platform or wondering why you can’t see your settings directly in Magento. This convenience is what really makes our integration stand out.

Fooman Connect is easy to set up with our comprehensive user documentation and video set up guide.

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by FOOMAN

Fooman Connect: Xero 5 5 9 9
Excellent customer service Having tried to use a larger, more expensive SaaS solution to sync Magento to Xero and failing I decided to try Fooman Connect, which is miles better than the competitors. I would have no hesitation in recommending this plugin to any developer as Kristof provides excellent customer support and if you can't get something working, he will. Must buy for a Magento -> Xero integration. March 12, 2015
Great Product, Great Service If you want invoices from Magento to flow over to Xero then this is a great product. The product is configurable and the cost is reasonable when you look at the data entry time you save. I had a couple of custom modules already in place and they didn't work out of the box with this module, but Fooman got it sorted quick and put some great clean looking code in place to help my business run how I needed it to. I will be buying more products from Fooman when I need them because things just work as they should. August 11, 2014
Great extension backed up with great support This wasn't the first extension that I came across to integrate Magento with Xero - I wish it had been as it would have saved me a lot of wasted time. Whereas the other product only worked sporadically and it took days to get a response to my issues, the Fooman Connect: Xero product worked 'out of the box'. The software is robust, has excellent features and, most importantly, when I had one minor issue Kristof was very quick to get back to me with a solution. Combine this with excellent documentation for the product and you have a top notch solution if you're looking to integrate Magento and Xero. Highly, highly recommended! January 19, 2014
Excellent support Have had excellent support from Kristof to help me resolve some minor issues with the extension. The code looks well written and the client has no issues with getting their orders to sync. August 6, 2013
Impressed A few issues in setting up the integration between Xero and Magento but these were quickly resolved by Fooman support. So far everything works as prescribed. July 17, 2013
This is a great extension if you use Xero. We have had a couple of issues over the last year but neither was caused by the extension itself and Kristof from Fooman has promptly responded with extra info to help us solve these issues. January 31, 2013
This module has crashed on my site and the developer does not repond to my emails. I would avoid.. July 16, 2012
An amazing product with even more amazing after sales service. With near to 2 years’ experience with using this product and supplier i can strongly recommend to others. It’s the after sales support you will appreciate the most because the product just works; the supplier knows what it means to respect the customer and supply world class service whilst remaining approachable and friendly. March 7, 2012
This extension works amazing with magento and xero. A fanastic way of automating your business process. Great support from Fooman to get this working for my website. Thanks! December 18, 2011

Answer: 
To securely transfer your financial data, your php version must be able to support openssl. Most websites meet this requirement, but please ask your hosting company if in doubt.

Answer: 
Manual reconciliation is the only way to guarantee 100% accuracy, so automatic reconciliation is not supported. There is no 'safe' way of automating reconciliation without producing errors - for example with credit card payments, Magento does not recognise if you get a daily payout, what the split is between different card types, and how long the payment delay is.

We don't really want to clog up Xero with all our individual transactions on Magento. Can you configure this plugin to only sync a daily/weekly total instead of every order?

Answer: 
Hi raybadminton

Thanks for your interest in Fooman Connect.

Daily summaries is not a feature we currently support - it's something we've looked into extensively but unfortunately a range of issues have been identified which would produce issues in reconciliation (diverging numbers in Magento, Xero and payment providers caused by different settlement times, payment/card types and refund processing times).

Cheers

Hi there,

Fooman Connect: Xero links your Magento store to one Xero account, and maps all multi store websites to this account.

Answer: 
Hi there,

No, neither Magento nor Xero currently offer comprehensive support for tracking the cost of inventory. I suggest you look for a 3rd party solution that specialises in inventory management.

Answer: 
Hi there,

Xero itself does not have a concept of stores. If you were referring to different Xero organisations or tracking categories this is both possible with our most release. For setting up with different organisations please get in touch via our support and we can talk you through the setup.

Cheers,
