Recurring Direct Debit Invoices
I would like to see a way that automatic recurring billing merchants (monthly/weekly direct debit payments) such as eWay, EziDebit, PinPayments, etc could integrate with the Xero invoicing platform.
This is how I think it should work. (using a monthly payment as example)
- Client registers recurring billing with Payment Merchant (eWay, etc)
- First payment comes out of clients credit card/bank account
- Data is then send to linked Xero account, where an invoice is raised, marked as paid and payment receipt sent to client from Xero.
- Every Month (or payment period), the process repeats.

For those interested in processing pre-authorised Direct Debit or Credit Card transactions based on your Xero invoice due date please check out [url=http://www.ucollect.biz]uCollect[/url].
Right now (Dec 2014) it has facilities for Direct Debits for NZ Banks (BNZ, ANZ, Westpac & ASB), Direct Debits using generic ABA file in Australia, and EziDebit. Coming soon will be Stripe, eDebit, eWAY, SEPA Direct Debits, DPS (NZ) and Authorize.net.

This would be exactly what we are after too. it would be a huge assistance and enough for us to start using Xero straight away.

We are a training college and are looking for the exact scenario described above
We use Xero for our accounting and are in the process of moving our students finance into xero
In our existing system we could run a CSV file from our direct debit company that would register the payments to the student file -- no manual entering --Please somebody help
