Xero and Square Announce Integration in the US

Brought to you by

Accounting software company Xero Limited announces an integration with Square Inc., a US company with a suite of business tools aimed at making commerce easy.

The integration will enable customers to seamlessly link their Xero and Square account in minutes, allowing transaction data to flow automatically from point-of-sale from Square to back-office accounting software from Xero. Sellers and small businesses can now save time, which was previously spent manually inputting sales.

"With a joint commitment to building beautiful software solutions that are affordable and accessible to small businesses, Xero is thrilled to be a part of Square's software partner platform," Peter Karpas, Xero CEO North America, says. "Like Square, we are always looking at ways of enhancing our existing tools, with time-saving at the heart, so this feels like the perfect partnership."

Small businesses using Xero in the United States will be able to integrate with Square starting April 1.
