Posting Invoices to Xero

Zeevou can post invoices to Xero once a guest checks out. Before that point, the invoice in Zeevou is kept as a draft invoice (pro-forma), and it cannot be posted to Xero yet as there may be changes to the booking before the guest leaves. To post invoices to Xero, you also need to have set up Investor Deals. Once you have done so, click on Finances -> Invoices and open the relevant invoice. You should see an option on the top right “Post to Xero”. Once posted, you can click on the Remote Invoice No. to check if the details have been sent across correctly. If you want invoices to be sent for every booking that you mark as checked-out, visit Settings -> Organisation Configuration and tick “Auto-Post Invoices To Xero” under “Invoice & Xero Configuration”.
