Xero allows you to create different accounts to track various activities. Orders and payments sent to Xero need to be associated with accounts in your Xero's Chart of Accounts. The StoreFront needs to know these account codes.

Go to Xero > Settings > Chart of Accounts
Confirm that the following are correct or otherwise provide your own codes:

  • Handling fees - This is normally "260 - Other Revenue"
  • Website Payments - This normally needs to be created. Use 3-digit code "090" if available.
  • Sales invoices - This is normally "200 - Sales". Create a custom code if you want to separate web sales from other sales
  • Shipping fees - This is normally "425 - Freight & Courier"
