XeroNew Invoice (Legacy)

With most of those work orders coming in via email, it makes sense to bring that data into your accounting. This Gmail-Xero integration can do it for you, too. Set it up and every new email you receive on Gmail will trigger this Zap. If you want to be more specific, you can have it focus on a single label instead.

Whenever a new message is detected, Zapier will automatically send the information to Xero, creating an invoice that you can complete at your leisure.

How It Works

  1. You receive a new email on Gmail
  2. Zapier automation creates an invoice on Xero

What You Need

  • Gmail account
  • Xero account

Note: This integration will only work if you have a Business Gmail account - these have custom domains. Free consumer Gmail accounts cannot be used with this integration. Read Help docs here.
