Xero (@Xero) announced today that it is partnering with Shopify (@Shopify), an industry leading commerce platform that allows anyone to easily sell online, at their retail location, and everywhere in between. The exciting new dual platform integration is expected to go live later on this year (2015).
With more and more businesses turning to Shopify as a true, powerful and robust, yet intuitive and simple e-commerce platform it’s perfect timing for XERO to announce their seamless cloud accounting integration. Here is the official statement from Xero relating to their timely and much anticipated big step that’s just been waiting to happen: Shopify partners with Xero
If you’re not familiar with Shopify (helped massively by US entrepreneur Tim Ferriss of 4 Hour Work Week fame) it is a platform that allows any one to sell online regardless of technical skill. Shopify provides everything you made need to sell online anywhere and trusted by over 150,000 business owners. Shopify offers a professional online storefront, a payment solution to accept credit cards, a point of sale system to power retail sales and a card reader to process credit card transactions through a mobile phone.

The partnership between the two technological giants now allows Shopify merchants to seamlessly track the impact of sales on their business financials, frees up time spent on manual data entry, and minimises the frustrations created by working with two separate systems.
Here at A&C Chartered Accountants we believe the future of accounting truly lies in cloud accounting. Not only that, we are very excited to see so many technologically advanced small to medium sized businesses starting out, making use of both our cloud accounting services, but also of so many fantastic services such as Spotify. 5 years or so ago, when such services didn’t exist, people’s life choices to go into business for themselves were restricted by cost and know how.
We’re extremely proud to be at the cutting edge of cloud apps and software integration and you can read more about our holistic integrations here: partner services and partner apps.
