Bpay integration with Xero
I would like to see Bpay integration with Xero. Bpay is widely used as an accepted payment method within Australia. http://www.bpay.com.au/ It would not be a very complex add in as all that's required is a customer reference field to be specified on every customer as well as a Biller Code field that can be defined in the organisation settings.

As one of the original and most widely used electronic payment systems in Australia, I think it should be accommodated by Xero. My company has been a Bpay biller for 13 years. A large chunk of our clients use this system to pay us. A custom field name/description in contacts would be a good start. This would at least allow manual input of the customer's Bpay reference number. What would be even better is an "Account number" field with the ability to add a MOD10 check digit automatically.
Is the reason Bpay hasn't been considered, under "planned" or "Started". Due to this feature not being financially beneficial to xero?
Looking at the amount of votes posted compared to other requests, this is near the top.
If this option was available, there would be flood of new comers to the service. This is just from the few people we have discussed this issue with.
Can we please have an answer, as if this is even being considered. If not, then we can pursue another option.
This is the one single thing stopping me (and many business owners I know) from moving from MYOB to Xero. +1 for BPAY integration!
I would like to use Xero as well but do need BPay integration or allowing custom fields so the data can be manually entered. we use the check digit rule MOD10V03

Yes, I would love to see this. But please people, understand that back-end coding of software is not "simple" or "easy". What we see in a Word doc is NOT all that goes into creating this.

An important addition for the Australian market. Just having an ID# field in contacts that could be used for Bpay and other ID requirements would be sufficient.
