Send statements

One of the challenges of a small business owner is to be the marketing and sales person, building relationships to sell jobs, and being the debt collector.

If someone hasn’t paid you then you can send them a statement. This appears less personal. Statements can appear like your accounting system has automatically sent the statement so allows you to preserve your good relationship with your customer.

is there an easy way to bulk email statements?

Hey Abbey, unfortunately there’s no bulk emailing for statements yet, just have to email from each statement. It’s something we want to do though – so thanks for the feedback.
Regards, Catherine

While you’re at it bulk emailing invoices would be great too please.

Got it, those items are on the list.

Much to do.

+1 for bulk statements emailing. (I found this page searching for this!)

Automatic statement sending for delinquent account, or at least automatic “you haven’t paid this invoice” reminders.

I know that’s more or less what the Xero Network place “Getting Paid” does, but…
a) It’s another 30 bucks a month
b) It’s separate from Xero, it would be MUCH better as part of Xero

What is the ETA on , it’s killing us – as I sit sending statements manually AGAIN to ~70 stores…how I love this monthly chore….

Ahh following on from James’ note I found and have signed up with that – hooks into Xero and sends automatic chasing emails, early days but seems like the functionality we needed…just an FYI if you do use it – make sure you’ve updated all the email templates and details BEFORE you import from Xero – as the emails will go out with the vanilla settings (ie no bank details – generic email templates)

I have tried ‘getting-paid’, and whilst the idea is sound, this could so much more easily and completely be integrated into Xero, can we get some feedback as to if and when Xero may add this?

Hi guys is there a view on an ETA for this? This is a big one for me. I believe fresh books does it. I’ll check out that add-on but I wouldn’t have thought I would have to pay $30 for this, I reckon it should be core as well.

BTW great product, i actually enjoy bookkeeping now, honestly I do it every day, I used to absolutely hate it and outsourced all of it (cost me a fortune) well done.

Multiple reminders with different email contents (Pay, Pay or else, Pay – we know where you live!) should be as a standard form very begging. It’s a shame that you have to pay 30$ extra just to get it from third party system. Please make this as priority as it’s simply will help us get pay! One email is simply not working.

Any progress on bulk e-mail invoicing or reminders yet? This would be a great and very time saving feature!

Are you guys asking about bulk sending statements? This feature has existed for quite some time now.

Is there anyway to automate statements yet? I see Rod said above that it was on the list in 2010, it is now 2015 :)

Hi Wade, Time flies! We’re underway with designing auto invoice reminders & statements and we will be updating the community as soon as development starts. It’s moving :)

Xero Community: Auto statements and invoice reminders to prevent late payment and payment chasing

I’m finding it difficult to trust this is coming and I’m really resentful of having to pay a 3rd party company to do something simpler systems like Freshbooks do automatically. Is there any kind of eta you can give us on this?

Hi Dee, appreciate it’s frustrating having to wait. I can’t give you an ETA yet, still early on in the process, but will do so on the community post as soon as we know more.
