You should be busy with overall strategy for your business, not low-level data entry. Let Zapier do that work for you. Once you've set it up, this automation will capture every new client you add on FreshBooks, automatically copying their details into Xero so that your records always account for everyone.

Note: Your clients must be entered with a name, not just an email and organization, for this integration to work.

How this FreshBooks-Xero integration works

  1. A new client is added on FreshBooks
  2. Zapier creates a new contact to match them on Xero
