Enable the upcoming Purchase Order module to link to outside applications

My company has an app that services a very large niche market- all of those clients (tens of thousands) also need accounting. Our current app has rudimentary accounting in it but we are seeking to set up a sync with a dedicated cloud-app for all the accounting. Purchase Orders are crucial to this niche market and if we could sync them with Xero via api it would make a huge difference.

(Provide GET/PUT/POST PurchaseOrders endpoint)

        Thanks! So which add-ons allow for PO reporting - any recommendations... All we need is to be able to summarise the PO's for a date by supplier and know which quantities of which item we have ordered.

        Hi Rob,

        I'm from an EDI provider that can assist you with what you need. Give us a call on 03 9521 2188 and let us know you're wanting EDI with Xero.

        We are a Xero user but have customers wanting to send their Purchase Orders via EDI to our 3rd party 3PL warehouse for picking and despatch. A separate delivery report from 3PL warehouse to us will trigger us to do an invoice run. Does Xero have an EDI interface that could support this? As our product codes EAN's are constantly changing we would need to be able to update regularly.

        Cheers
        Rob

        Great to see you guys get this working so quickly, I was telling my clients it would be at least another year!
        Is this the best place to give feedback on the new Purchase Orders API? I'm not sure but anyway.. I have an issue with the unit amount and the account code being required to create a new PO. Why can't the item default be used when the field is not supplied in the request? The Invoice API works this way and it is a nice feature, it means you never have to expose the real cost price to the sales staff or bother with maintaining account codes in another system where it is irrelevant.

        Developers, start your engines! Can't wait for someone to write a connector for MS Project purchase orders straight into Xero.

        Hey it's early 2016 now. Any update on this? Super keen to use this feature in our eComm app too. Will streamline and improve our internal flow immensely.

        We have a standalone purchase order app that would be nice to interface with Xero. We have already done the work to sync xero chart and suppliers with our app just waiting for you guys to finish the API. I noticed WorkflowMax is already syncing it's PO with Xero. Are they using the API or do they have a direct plug into the backend?

        Awesome stuff, really want this to add to our eCommerce implementation to make life a little quicker and easier.

        That's great news!!! It's something we really need. Would you be able to give us a time frame on its release?
        Thanks

        Wow... I just saw the API docs saying Purchase Orders isn't available, and then came here to see work on it has started.

        Hopefully is released soon! Since it's almost been a couple of weeks hopefully get an update soon!

        Is there any further update on this? We are developing an app that needs the ability to extract PO's. Is there an ETA?
