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.

My engineering team and I are working on an application to sync data (contacts, invoices, etc.) from WildApricots to Xero. If you would be interested in using this or have specific feature requests, feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org . I'd love to offer this free while the application is in beta!
I agree with the other comments - Xero integration is a must - otherwise for all the things you make easier you make a whole load of other things more difficult.
That's a shame - everything else about WA is perfect, but much like the others who have commented, no Xero integration = no go. Quite a shame!
We’re considering using WA for membership but no Xero link no deal I’m afraid.
This would seek a lot more licences for you guys
All the best from Oz.

Xero is really starting to be used more and more in Canada for accounting software, especially with the outages in QBO that are frustrating users. We have moved most of our bookkeeping practice over to Xero. I too recommend integration between Wild Apricot and Xero.
Plus, they are lovely to deal with.
Xero integration is a must for me. Unless you can offer this I won't be proceeding further.
Rosemary Hancock commented
it would be fantastic if Wild Apricot could integrate directly with Xero's accounting software. Not through a third party (e.g. Integromat - i do not need all this extra stuff!) and certainly not with an extra cost attached. I have other software that is seamlessly integrated with Xero.

Xero integration should be on the roadmap.
I'm currently reviewing Wild Apricot for my client, but without integration to Xero I'm stopped in my tracks. What is your Product Roadmap with regards to integration with Xero in future please?
Neville Eldridge commented
Well I guess I'll just join the others. XERO integration is a must for us. We are considering WA and I must say the website flexibility is great. BUT....with no XERO integration we will have to look elsewhere....sadly, because WA is a good product. Most other software companies in this space are moving to integrate with XERO (if they have not already). I think WA will lose many prospective clients over this.

Hello, sentiments echo everyone else. Respectfully - I wonder if WA team is aware of a) the market uptake of Xero against legacy products and b) Orgs looking to move to WA are considering looking at integration (automation) between their financial system as well as their CRMs (WA).
We would be looking for.
1.0) Two way exchange of information between WA and Xero for the purposes of reconciliation.
2) Mirroring fields (accounts).
Honestly, I'm surprised WA dev team wouldn't be able to assume what the benefits are and where synergy's could be created between the two products for the benefit of your user base?

I have just moved a business over from Quickbooks to Xero and they have just started with WA but I discovered there is no integration with XERO. There is no possibility of going back to Quickbooks so can you please provide a timeline for WA & XERO integration. I have a consulting group who have also subscribed to WA but have the same issue of needing XERO integration. It is a MUST HAVE!!!!!
No updates here yet. Most likely we will integrate QuickBooks online first, but that's still in a queue
Pat Birgan commented
Any update on the possibility of Xero and WP integration? I have clients wanting this solution here in Australia.
Howard Randall commented
This will be a deal breaker for up to 200 plus organisations! Must be added asap. Xero are the most pro active company that connects to most platforms WA needs to get on board with this.
We don't have such integration right now, but you could try to implement it using Integromat https://www.integromat.com/en/integrations/wild-apricot/xero
Xero integration would be great!
Kyla MacDonald commented
We'd love to see integration with Xero. Integration is becoming more & more important to us.
Evan Lamberton commented
WA please reconsider your stance on integration with Xero. We use both but the extra work involved because of the lack of integration is seriously making us consider moving away from WA as our membership grows.
We would be keen. Xero is a 100% must have to even consider Wild Apricot.
