How to sync payments you receive to Xero

  • Updated

When you get paid through Melio, your incoming payments are synced back and get automatically reconciled in Xero.


Here’s how the sync between Melio and Xero works:

  1. You create your invoices in Xero.
  2. Invoices and contacts are synced automatically from Xero to Melio. Not the other way around. This is a one-way sync. 
  3. On Melio, you can then send payment requests to your customers for these invoices. 
  4. After the payment requests are fully paid, they sync back from Melio to Xero, where they’re marked as paid. 

There are a few cases where a sync isn’t possible:

  • Invoices that were uploaded/added manually in Melio.
  • Invoices that were paid through your Melio payment link and not through a payment request.
  • Invoices that were paid by a different method other than Melio. Make sure to mark these invoices as paid in Xero. This will automatically reconcile them in Melio as well.
