Automatic bank feeds continue to be a huge hit and now credit card transactions too can appear, seamlessly in Xero.
This is another part of our integration with the Yodlee data gathering service. We now support bank feeds for credit cards from the big banks in Australia and New Zealand. If you’re in the UK or North America you’re likely to have this service already. The next (and final) step is to support banks that need multi-factor authentication, such as Bendigo Bank and Bank of America.
So in addition to supporting BNZ and Kiwibank, we now support these bank credit cards in New Zealand: ANZ, ASB, National and Westpac. And in Australia: ANZ (prepaid and credit cards), NAB (personal credit cards) and Westpac. If this includes your bank, activate and enjoy!
Other great features in this release to check out are:
US friendly dates and zip codes – A couple more updates to display US friendly dates and use US terminology.
Manual journals – CSV import – Great for uploading journals from other systems.
Paypal improvements – PayPal feeds are now more reliable and have better information for bank reconciliation. Just be aware some changes may affect your bank rules.
API updates – You can now access and retrieve even more information via the API. Add draft manual journals, add inventory items, specify item codes on invoices, retrieve invoices in PDF format and retrieve responses in JSON format.
Answers for Developers – Share your ideas, help others and have your voice heard about future API features at our new answers site.
HandiLedger – GL export – This is for all you Australian accountants using Sage’s HandiLedger to prepare final accounts. You can now export your general ledger in the right format.
As always your feedback helps us prioritise the next features and improvements, and we know you’ve got lots of ideas so keep them coming.
