As of September 30, Xero will require all Staff and Partner user accounts with access to your Checkfront account to have Two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled.
Over the coming weeks, we will begin notifying users who do not have this security feature turned on. After September 30, Checkfront accounts with Xero integrations will be inaccessible to those without 2FA. Instructions for enabling 2FA can be found here.
If you have additional questions about this change, please reach out to our support team.
Xero is an online accounting solution for businesses that tracks invoicing/billing, accounts payable, bank reconciliation and bookkeeping. Checkfront made the decision to adopt Xero and replace our existing system with the hopes of streamlining expenses, reconciliation and cash flow management.
We have been so impressed with Xero's efficiencies and benefits that we want to share them with the Checkfront community, providing an end to end solution. If you are still using desktop accounting software, imagine this:
- Reconciliation while you sleep. Checkfront will automatically sync your invoices and payments with Xero.
- No more dragging files around. Give your bookkeeper and accountant access to your records wherever you are.
How Does It Work?Back to top
The Xero add-on automatically adds invoices, payments, and customers to your Xero account. When a new booking is created, Checkfront creates an invoice and contact in Xero with the information supplied at the time of booking. When a payment is applied in Checkfront, a payment is applied to the invoice in Xero.
If a booking is amended, changed or a refund is applied, the invoice is updated in Xero. This means all of your transactions and outstanding accounts payable are synced in both in Checkfront and Xero.
