Tracking cash payments – no problem

Electronic banking is so ingrained for many of us that receiving cash or payments which don’t get recorded in our bank account can really mess with the budget.

Some of you feel so strongly about this, that the ability to account for such payments is the no.1 feature request for Xero Personal. So today in this release we’re putting a smile on your face as we introduce Manual Transactions.

One of the most common scenarios that call for Manual Transactions is when you pay for a group gift on your credit card and everyone pays you back in cash at some stage. Using Manual Transactions you can account for that cash and this is especially helpful if the payment is delayed.

Watch this video to see how Manual Transactions work in Xero Personal:

Also in today’s release we’re extending the ability to import data so you can now bring in transactions using CSV format. For more detail on CSV importing see Help.

I’ve been waiting for this functionality since Jun 2010 and I’m so happy it’s finally arrived. Xero just keeps getting better and better and I really appreciate the extra time you guys and gals put into listening to your users. I take my hat off to you.
