Xero fast growing cloud based accounting package. The offer a great discount to non-profits and I found the transition form Quickbooks to be great. It would be great to build an integration to sync WA members to Xero contacts and also WA invoices to Xero invoices. I find both platforms productivity boosters. It would great if they could work together.
In the feature you mentioned we cover more scenarios, like proper accounting for different events. However, it's still a general spreadsheet that you need to manually import to Xero. I'm not sure if export improvements will help you here - need to check your problems in more details

We would love to Xero integration as well. Will the financial reporting / exporting features that WA is currently working on (see wishlist under work in progress) make it easier to do an export / import into Xero?

As a WA Partner I've now had several of our clients ask about Xero integration.
Xero has become very popular on our part of the world and I use Xero for my own business accounts.
For most enquiries the main consideration seems to be to simply be able to transfer data into the Xero accounting system to generate invoices and reconcile payments.
@Robert, If you want to integrate with Zipbooks, it's better start a new thread, so that other users could find and vote for it.
And you are right about using CSV export as starting method of transferring data from WA.

We are now using bookkeeping services from Zipbooks.
Wondering is there any way to integrate with WA. Thinking about downloading CSV file then importing it. But will it work? I am confused.
As an organisation, we would love to see an integration of Wild Apricot with Xero to remove hassle and expense of having to export to Quickbooks
Jon, thanks for reaching us out.
Currently, we don't support Xero, neither we have any exact plans on this.
As a workaround I can suggest export/import of contacts and invoices using CSV format as described in Xero articles here: https://help.xero.com/ImportExport and our help here: https://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Invoices#Invoices-Exportinginvoices
Hope this helps

Jon, I redirected your comment directly to our development team responsible for this area. It's up to them to decide what to do here. Thanks for the comment.

@Evgeny - Xero has a large database of companies that integrate with them ( https://www.xero.com/us/add-ons/ ) - Ideally, I think just two main things to integrate:
1. Export invoices to Xero (so we don't have to enter them manually into our accounting software)
2. Possibly exporting our contacts into Xero (which may consequentially happen anyway after exporting invoices.)

WA and Xero integration (contacts and financial transactions) would be of massive benefit to us
Looking for an API with Xero accounting service. At a minimum, I would like to keep WA members in sync with Xero contacts.
Since WA does not provide full accounting, it would be great to have an API with Xero or for that matter Quicken online.
We used both Wild Apricot and Xero and would fully support any integration between the products.
We would like to have (cheque/cash/paypal/credit card) donations and event registration payments transferred to Xero, and (EFT) payments or donations transferred from Xero to Wild Apricot. There should be a system where our bookkeeper can review the transactions before importing to general ledger.
Also if she has to sent out a tax deductible receipt for donations, it would be very helpful to have the updated name/address/email/postal address updated to Xero from Wild Apricot, which is generally the more current information.
What kind of integration would you ideally like to have?

I would LOVE to see Wild Apricot partner with Xero. Integrating the two systems would be a massive boost to our productivity and efficiency!
Are you guys in contact with Xero? They're definitely leading the way in cloud accounting technology.
