This app goes through ridiculous lengths to avoid telling you how much it charges for the monthly fee. It's 20$ for the starter pack. It has you go through the whole registration process before telling you.

the app lags and cut out a lot. it gets annoying when writing a long detailed description invoice and then the app decides to load and come up with a loading error message. also had problems once a while sending invoice. finding out 2 weeks later the invoice hasn't been sent. there needs to be a new update which reduces the lag and loading problems. other then that, it's a really great app and would recommend it to any small business such as myself.

Not massively impressed... There are a few important features which leave me thinking to switch to QuickBooks. Firstly I can't create/view invoices with CIS deductions in the app - as I work in construction that makes it almost entirely useless for invoicing. Secondly, the facility to scan and record receipts is not as quick and easy as QuickBooks. Thirdly, it does not connect to a bank account with Triodos. So that's a few key useful features missing and it costs more.... ho hum..?

The interface not as good as in webpage, especially we cannot open the basic feature of accounting which is profit and loss & balance sheet. I hope Xero will taking more seriously to develop their mobile app, thanks!

Zero, that's what it's worth! It is the most overpriced, lacking, unsupported rip- off I have yet to come across. I have spent many an hour of frustration, clicking page to page, back, then forward another 3 to painstakingly enter information, such as itinerary. Hours entering text to then just have it disappear into the void that is zero. And again, on the App this time text just vanished as I was in the process of saving it, terrified that it may vanish. Vanish it did, now it's zero to go. FOX

Works, mostly sometimes, but there must be a better way.

PROS & CONS

What are the best aspects of this product?

balancing bank statement seems good but its not set up to work on a monthly statement like the rest of the world...so you never really know where things are at without more work. the way it brings bank info into the process is pretty good though.

Over all...its just an OK product...it gets the job done, but nothing killer here folks.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

if you create an invoice and take a partial payment...there is no way to ever edit that invoice in the future without undoing the payment...recreating the invoice...then recreating the payment and re-reconciling everything. And if that payment was associated with a big deposit...you also have to re reconcile all the other payments on that deposit.

This is totally insane and a deal breaker to many users.

My accountant seems to dread working with it.

What features/services would you like to see in future versions of this product?

Stop ignoring the request to have the ability to edit an invoice. This is 2019 and people been asking for the ability to more easily edit invoices for years! I am no fan of Intuit, but Quickbooks lets you edit invoices without a hiccup.

Was really disappointed when they got rid of their payroll service. It also was not an awesome service, but did the job at a price I was willing to pay and that was one of the reasons I went with them at the beginning, so it was a let down to have it go away.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

The only reason I use Xero at this point, is that it works mostly... or at least sometimes, in conjunction with my online booking software to avoid double entry of guest.

Are you a current user of this product?

Yes
