Arlo provides seamless two-way integration with Xero to manage your invoices.
Orders are automatically exported to Xero and assigned to your account/GL codes, and payments against the invoices are synchronised back into Arlo.
Credit card orders paid using the Arlo checkout are exported to Xero automatically, and the order is marked as paid in both systems automatically. Orders submitted with alternative payment methods are exported to Xero when the order is approved, or an invoice is sent. The order is marked as unpaid in both systems until you add payments to the order in Xero.
Please note that our API does not support Xero's Batch Payment Feature, which can cause an error in the order where it does not allow the order to successfully sync back to Arlo.
The Batch Payment Feature is outlined here - https://central.xero.com/s/article/Create-a-batch-deposit#Aboutbatchdeposits
