The 'Import suppliers from Xero' option is not adding Xero suppliers to Vend

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • Xero integration

Cause

The contact in Xero is not designated as a supplier. 

Solution

In Xero, create a bill or invoice for the contact so that they will be designated a supplier. They will then be able to be imported into Vend. 

Additional Information

  • In Xero, contacts are designated as customers if your business receives funds from them, and as suppliers if your business pays funds to them.
