Fooman Connect: Xero License Purchase (Magento 2)

  • Tired of wasting time and making mistakes manually updating your records in Xero? Fooman Connect: Xero a Magento-Xero integration that saves you serious time:

    • Automatically export Magento orders, customer data, items and credit notes to Xero
    • Improve the accuracy of your data in Xero and eliminate mistakes from human error
    • Automate your processes and take the hassle out of managing your accounts


    Automatically connect Magento + Xero

    Export Magento orders, credit notes, customer data and sold products (items) to Xero. Simply log into Xero and all your Magento data is there.

    All that's left for you to do is to reconcile the invoice or credit memo with bank, credit card or Paypal payments in Xero.

    Fine grained options put the control in your hands

    You control the automatic export process, including:

    * Which order status will trigger the export
    * Manually excluding any records you don't want exported to Xero

    There's a variety of options in the Magento backend to suit your business needs.

    Never worry about customer record matching again

    Focus on growing your business, knowing your Xero customer records are up-to-date:

    * Invoices are automatically matched to existing customer records in Xero
    * New customer records are automatically created


    Seamless integration with your Magento backend

    Once reconciled in Xero, payments made in Xero can be displayed in your Magento backend, so you can view them at a glance.

    You have full visibility and control of everything being exported from a new Xero dashboard in the Magento backend.


    Advanced tax settings to suit your business

    Even if your Magento tax settings are complex, Fooman Connect handles them with ease. No more frustration with manually re-assigning tax rates in Xero.

    Your Magento tax settings are accurately reflected in Xero, whether you're using Xero worldwide, UK, Australia or New Zealand (supports GST, VAT and Xero custom tax rates).

    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 revenue to different Xero sales accounts on a per store or even individual product level.

    Feature List

    Multi Store Capable

    “I knew when we started I needed a solution that would give me full and accurate visibility of Magento sales data in Xero and be 100% accurate. From the very first pull of our sales data from Magento to Xero, it was all automated. It was really easy to do our partner payments each month, reconcile all our accounts and see our sales by region.

    The time taken for us to export and import into Xero was a matter of minutes, even when we have significant sales per month from different countries. The extension is very simple and intuitive”

    “I researched the alternatives to connect Magento and Xero. I first tried another tool but it wasn’t a great experience and I didn’t get the results I was expecting. So I was really happy when I found the Fooman extension and it worked exactly as I wanted it to. There’s a seamless integration between Magento and Xero - it’s like they are one!”

    “... a well coded integration that can be customised to exact client needs. Kristof and his team provide excellent support and the time difference (they're based out of NZ) has never been an issue for us. We'll be using more of his extensions in the future and are happy to recommend them to other digital agencies.“

    - Peter Stannard, WSI (UK-based Digital Marketing Agency)

    “A fantastic product that has made life easier. We have been using this product for a couple months now. It has allowed us to track sales and refunds in real-time through Xero as we process them. It's a great product. Highly recommend it.”

  • Check out installation instructions, User Manual and FAQ over at the Support Centre.

    Extension Updates

    Fooman Connect: Xero license purchase comes with 12 months free updates and support. When a new version is released, the file will be available to download from your account on the Fooman website, under “My Downloadable Products”.


    Installation Instructions
    User Manual
  • Below, you can find answers to questions you might have about the extension functionality, and common questions asked by customers before they purchase the extension.

    Do you have a general question (eg. about licensing or your account), or a specific troubleshooting issue? Check out our Help Centre.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the system requirements for running Fooman Connect: Xero?
    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. Your hosting solution for Magento should also be adequate. Typically, cheaper shared/low specification hosting solutions have very low limits which don't allow enough time to connect to Xero and process data.

    Do you offer a free trial?
    We don't offer a free trial at this stage, but rest assured that Fooman Connect: Xero is backed by a 30 day money back guarantee. This allows you to test it out on your own store, trial all the settings and evaluate how it's working for you.

    If you're not happy for any reason at all, just let us know and we will send a full refund back onto your credit card. Let us know if you need a little more time to evaluate the extension - we're happy to extend the money back period with prior agreement.

    How much time will I save?
    Lots and lots! Exactly how much time depends on your order volume. In our trial on a Magento store with 10 orders per day, we spent 2 hours manually exporting one week's worth of data into Xero. This amounts to a whopping 100+ hours saved each year. Wouldn't you rather spend that time growing your business?

    Is Fooman Connect: Xero right for my store?
    Xero is designed to support volumes of up to 1,000 sales invoices and 1,000 purchases/bills per month (click for more information).

    Like Xero, Fooman Connect is optimised for small to medium sized online stores. Transfers from your Magento store to Xero are additionally subject to Xero's limit of 60 requests per minute. As this limit comes form Xero directly, it's not specific to Fooman Connect and also applies to other Magento-Xero integrators.

    Can I use Fooman Connect to export existing Magento orders, customer data, items and credit notes to Xero?
    Yes - you can manually export existing Magento orders, customer data, items and credit notes to Xero that were in your store prior to using Fooman Connect.

    Can I customise the extension code?
    The code of the license purchase version of Fooman Connect is fully customisable.
