We’ve mentioned Syft before as it was Xero’s Team Pick for the year, but it’s worth mentioning again. Syft creates reports that show the current position of your e-commerce business vs the industry standard. These reports can aid in securing funding from prospective partners, negotiating credit lines from the bank and, most importantly, giving you and your accountant clear information on how you can scale your business.
Perfect for: Demonstrating your business’ value to potential partners, funding streams etc. without having to put in a lot of work.
Most e-commerce entrepreneurs opt for selling on Amazon FBA or similar platforms. You may also have a store housed on a website. Fooman is one of our top Xero integration options if your store runs through Magento. Indeed, Fooman is the “only Magento-Xero integration to work directly from your Magento backend”, making it an essential time-saver if your store uses Magento.
Perfect for: Anyone who uses Magento as there are limited automation options available.
3. Link My Books / A2X
Link My Books and A2X are both bridging apps that carry your e-commerce store data straight into Xero. Both are massively popular and we’ve covered the differences in detail here. Amazon FBA entrepreneurs can use either but Link My Books is currently only available for Amazon (and is beta-testing eBay), whereas A2X has more options.
Perfect for: All e-commerce entrepreneurs. Either option will save you time while increasing accuracy and providing your accountant with a clear picture of your position.
HubDoc is a handy app that you can use to scan your receipts and invoices on your phone. The transactions are automatically matched with your bank data and the paperwork is neatly uploaded to Xero.
