XeroCreate Sales Invoice

You collect payments with PayPal and manage your books with Xero. Use this PayPal Xero integration to make the two systems work in harmony - each time you make a sale with PayPal, an invoice will be automatically created in Xero.

Note: This Zapier integration doesn't create invoices from previous orders, only new orders after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A new sales is made through PayPal
  2. Zapier creates a new Xero invoice from this order
