I would like to link in to other on-line invoice aggregator services via their API and send an invoice to them electronically. I have a couple of multi national clients who refuse to accept invoices that are emailed with PDF attachments. They want me to use their invoice aggregator which either costs me money (if I integrate using their API) or time if I log on to their portal and manually enter each invoice (yeah right!).</p> Barry Pyle tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/24968335 2015-06-29T04:19:33-06:00 2015-06-29T04:19:33-06:00 Add total discount on invoice <p>sanjay suggested:<br />My client need to add total discount on entire invoice rather than giving discount on each item.

Here&#39;s how they work: Customer provides a URL (http://myserver.com/xero/changed) to Xero, and when something is changed, Xero notifies that URL, perhaps indicating which records have changed. The Xero API provides methods that you can query and compare with previous results to see what has changed. However, this is not performant for large data sets, and detecting changes involves a lot of code. The competition has it - web hooks are supported by QuickBooks. Let&#39;s get them in Xero - it&#39;s a superior product in every other way. </p><p>xero (admin) responded:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>Unfortunately when we looked at this in detail, our existing technical architecture would not support webhooks.

If it&#39;s a recurring invoice (particularly if it&#39;s monthly) it&#39;d be great if the client could opt to be billed automatically by credit card.</p><p>Anonymous said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>DPS has had the ability to support repeat Credit Card billing since day one; but Xero needs to change the information in their integration for repeat billing field TXNDATA1 (DPS only) which is currently set to ‘No’ (0) to ‘Yes’ (1). However it was apparently too hard - so now we have to pay an additional fee for another service from a different supplier to get the same thing I’m already paying for (?!) Feel free to set me straight if I am missing something – but this is what I was told I all that is required. </p></div></p> Anonymous tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/23907972 2015-06-02T15:51:39-06:00 2015-06-02T15:51:39-06:00 Be able to email approved invoices via the API [updated] <p>Anonymous said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>Please bring this feature into reality.</p></div></p> Anonymous tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/23897007 2015-06-02T08:50:26-06:00 2015-06-02T08:50:26-06:00 add Spree to your add-on market place [updated] <p>We use Spree as our shopping cart, so hooking that up to Xero would have us dancing with joy! </p><p>Chris Douglas said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>You can use LinkLab.
