Update – May 12, 2014

Manilla recently announced they will be closing their service on July 1, 2014. For those looking for an alternative, check out another Xero add-on partner HubDoc.

Manilla is bill management software – manage and organize all your bills and accounts in one place online. Integrated with your Xero account, it allows you to export upcoming bills, saving you the time you’d normally spend manually entering bills into Xero. And with Manilla, you only need one password to securely access all of your accounts and bills. No more lost or forgotten passwords; no more hassle. Plus, it will automatically post a reminder for upcoming bills.  

Who is it for?

Manilla is for US-based business owners looking to securely organize and manage incoming bills.

How Manilla works with Xero

Simply select an account in Manilla to export, map it to the appropriate chart of accounts in Xero and you’re done. Each new bill will automatically sync to Xero. Scott Scharf, owner of Catching Clouds, has written an in-depth review of the Manilla integration on the Sleeter Group Blog.

Where you can use Manilla

Manilla works for US customers and business owners.

So its a hybrid, sitting between your business and your personal financial management.

Are there any other solutions like this for the rest of the world?

Not that we know of, but let us know if you find anything.

Looks like a great personal solution. This might be just what Xero needs to get back into the personal account arena! Going to sign up today!

Does this app allow you to pay bills? Or would I still need another add on for payment like I don’t see where it says, so I assume it does not.

@Chad – from Manilla’s FAQ
“Manilla does not accept or process any payments. However, it is easy to pay your bills from Manilla with a few clicks. Simply click “pay bill” and Manilla will direct you to the account provider’s website to pay.”
