How will I know my clients are being looked after?

Will I have access to my client’s Vend account?

This is up to your client. We only provide account owners with access to their Vend account. Account owners are responsible for setting up additional users.

How does Vend connect with Xero?

Once the integration is set up, Vend will automatically send daily sales, account sales, payment totals, and stock orders from Vend to Xero.

The integration allows retailers and their financial advisors to reconcile payment deposits in retailer’s bank account each day with sales totals and payment totals from Vend. You can also match payments made to suppliers against stock order invoices, and payments from invoiced customers against their account sales.

Sales, posted stock purchases and payments will all be reflected in balance sheets and P&L in Xero.

Learn more about Vend’s integration with Xero.

How does Vend connect with QuickBooks Online?

Only available in the US. Integrating Vend with QuickBooks Online takes just a few minutes. Once integrated, Vend will automatically send end of day register closures to QuickBooks Online.

The integration reduces time spent on double data entry, and reduces errors. This allows retailers and their financial advisors to reconcile payment deposits in retailer’s bank account each day with sales totals and payment totals from Vend.
