Xero and Shopify join forces to support small businesses globally

Xero joins Shopify Plus Certified App Program and launches new Xero & Shopify integration

Wellington — 11 November, 2021 — Xero, the global small business platform, today announced a new integration with Shopify and revealed it has joined the Shopify Plus Certified App Program (PCAP), a select group of partners that supports the advanced needs of Shopify’s global merchants.

These are important steps towards solving common customer pain points and demonstrate a commitment to help ecommerce sellers to get started, grow, and increase efficiencies.

Nick Houldsworth, Xero’s EGM Ecosystem, said "by partnering with Shopify we aim to support our small business community to not only weather tough economic conditions, but manage and grow their businesses via one of the world’s largest ecommerce platforms. This, in turn, enables them to enhance their own customers’ online shopping experience.”

The new Xero & Shopify integration will be available in both the Shopify App Store and the new Xero App Store. This will enable Shopify’s more than 1.7 million merchants to discover Xero’s global small business platform, while also giving Xero customers access to Shopify’s product using the Xero App Store’s new subscription tools and one-click sign-up (where available by region).

The integration helps small business owners save time on admin by reducing the manual data entry and paperwork associated with reconciling and interpreting sales data, giving them an up-to-date view of their finances, cash flow and business performance wherever they are.

“The Shopify Plus Certified App Program is designed to meet the advanced requirements of the world’s fastest-growing brands,” said Mark Bergen, VP Revenue, Shopify. “We’re happy to welcome Xero to the program, bringing their insight and experience in accounting and finance to the Plus merchant community.”

Xero & Shopify Integration app benefits:

  • Faster, more accurate data. Know how much revenue and profit is being made each day. Xero will automatically show Shopify sales on a daily basis, along with a breakdown of costs - enabling customers to clearly see how much profit they’ve made.
  • Shopify reconciliation in just a few clicks. No more manual data entry. The integration is designed to help save customers time on admin by automatically sending Shopify sales transactions to Xero for easy reconciliation against bank data.
  • Easily track cash flow. Get an overview of a business’ performance in real-time with the Xero dashboard. Customers can view long and short term cash flow forecasts and use up-to-date insights to make fast and informed business decisions from anywhere.

The Xero & Shopify integration is available globally in the Xero App Store and in the Shopify App Store, alongside other solutions to help customers integrate Shopify into their workflows. Customers using existing Xero-Shopify integrations will be unaffected.
