What is an API = and what do you use it for? For those of us not so techy!

HI Maree. API stands for Application Programming Interface. It’s the interface and format that allows other software products to communicate directly with Xero. As an example a payroll software provider can ‘automagically’ send payroll accounting entries to Xero after they complete a payrun in their system.

So as well as you working with Xero through the web user interface – other programs can talk to us as well.

Hope that makes sense,

Rod
