Latest update: - Lucia Palozzi

Problem

Register closures and on account sales are not automatically posting to Xero.  

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • Xero integration

Cause

  • There are errors preventing posting to Xero
  • Xero account is not authorised
  • Arabic characters in the Invoice Prefix and Suffix and the register name
  • Multiple Xero connections under the Xero settings 

Solution

Check for Errors Posting to Xero

  1. Find the register closure/on account sale that is not posting to Xero
  2. Click the red 'Xero' icon next to the register closure/sale
  3. Check the error that appears.

If the 'Xero' icon turns blue, it means there was an error at the time the register closure/on account sale was created. The error has since been resolved but Vend will not send the register closure/on account sale over to Xero again automatically. You will need to click the red Xero icon to send them over.
