Xero and the Retail Sector

Motion blurred shopping street scene

The reason I love Xero so much and recommend to all my clients is because of the integration with other apps. Xero takes cloud-accounting software, integrates with an app and creates a complete business solution.

One of my favourite apps is iZettle, a point-of-sale system which can meet all of your retail needs, whether you sell in-store, online or both.


The system combines a card reader with the iZettle Go app to turn the card reader into a complete point-of-sale.

The iZettle Go point-of sale app allows you to collect sales data, track your stock, oversee staff, take payments instore, invoice and take online payments.

The sales reports give a detailed understanding of your business and enables better decision making.


IZettle e-commerce synchronises perfectly with the point-of-sale app so that you can run your business instore and online, 24 hours a day.

You can build an online store, sell from your existing site or set up a shop on social media.

On the Go

By combining the card reader and iZettle Go app you can turn the device into a mobile point-of-sale and take payments wherever you do business.


You can also upgrade to the iZettle Pro app which comes with additional specialised features designed to support food and drink services.

Features include table management layout, allowing customers to split bills and have an open tab and creating customer loyalty schemes.

The Clever Bit

IZettle lets you sync your sales and payments data into your Xero accounts. IZettle automatically syncs the data on a daily basis, saving hours of time from manually entering sales data into your accounting system.
