Xero plugin for Craft Commerce 2
This plugin allows you to automatically send Commerce invoices into Xero including contacts, payments and even inventory updates.
You'll need to create a private application within Xero and then connect via OAuth using a consumer key, consumer secret and private (self signed) certificate.
You'll also need a Certificate store which can be downloaded from this repo for ease of use. It's generated from Firefox's own Cert store and updated often. see here
Once connected the plugin allows you to map your Chart of Accounts (Account Codes) including:
- sales revenue
- accounts receivable
By default all fully paid orders will be pushed into the queue (you'll need to ensure you're processing the queue freqeuently) with a delay of 30 seconds (this is reduce the time customers spend waiting for their order to process) and then once the queue has dispatched the job, the invoice will be sent to Xero.
If you need to send existing orders to Cero you can do so by viewing an order and you'll see a "Send to Xero" button which will instantly send the order off to Xero. This button also currently acts as a way to see if an order is already in Xero.
What fields are sent to Xero
Below is a list of fields that is sent to Xero. In future versions hooks/events will be avaialbe if you require more information to be sent.
- first name
- last name
- status (AUTHORISED)
- type (ACCREC)
- contact (as above)
- LineAmountType (Exclusive) (future versions will be configurable)
- Invoice Number (order referrence)
- SentToContact (invoices are marked as sent)
- Due Date (now)
- account code (sales)
- description (product tile)
- unit amount (item total)
- Item Code (sku) (if inventory is enabled)
- same as above but account is set to you defined shipping account.
- account (receivable account)
- reference (order transaction reference)
- amount (total paid amount)
- date (date paid)
Due to how different systems calculate rounding if for whatever reason the order total is different to what Xero calculates, an additional line item to account for rounding is added in Xero. Please ensure you have this account code selected under settings.
