Attach pdf invoice when emailing invoice via API
There is currently no way to attach the invoice PDF to emails when emailing from the API. We've had to resort to sending the link in the template used to email our customers. However, our customers prefer having an attachment instead of going to a link to download it.

Hi Xero. Can we get some traction on this please? A lot of our customers use OCR that relies on a PDF
Kirsty Daniels commented
Yes please, Xero! It makes no sense that invoice PDFs can't be attached automatically...

Any update on this?

Please create this Xero. I have an ingoing bill setup which accepts only PDF's through Xero - why are you not offering this yet?
I have to use a different billing system for outgoing invoices. Pretty tedious and I know you can do better on this one.
@Xero this seems to be getting more and more urgent. Customers are using invoicing systems that only read PDF invoices and won't follow the links

Something customers ask for all the time, come on Xero please.

Many businesses require a PDF for their own record keeping, so this would be a great feature.
Our partner app (ChargeOver) has a number of Xero customers who would benefit from this feature.
