  2. Allow access to POST/GET Bank Transfers through the API

    According to the http://blog.xero.com/developer/api/BankTransactions/ page, "This endpoint does not return payments applied to invoices or transfers between bank accounts".

    While there is a separate API for payments to invoices, one doesn't exist for Bank Transfers. Please can it be added?

  3. Increase rate limit (or allow details to be included in invoices, etc)

    This is especially important for an initial sync of a new customer with our product as we need every invoice in the database (including the PDFs, which we are happy to trickle into the system over time).

    Our current rate limits are detailed here: http://blog.xero.com/developer/api-overview/#limit

    If you do hit a rate limit, in many cases it will be the 60 requests/min limit, and not the daily limit.

    If you need to make more than the daily limit of API calls, then you might need to look at why: Xero is design for Small & Medium sized businesses, so we do not envisage creating dozens or hundreds of invoices, contacts etc on a daily basis as fitting our product niche.

    There are some one-off data sync operations we recognise can be tedious with the current API structure and rate limits – we are working on ways to improve this.

    If you are hitting a rate limit, email network@xero.com and let us know – we can see if we can help you – we don’t want anyone to be unable to use our service and quite often we can…

  4. Exposing default discount rate of Contacts via API

    Return discount rate info of Contacts in a GET Contacts response
