Step 2 - Select the Add-Ons tab to bring up your integration options. Select Xero.

Step 3 - You will be redirected to a login screen where you can enter your Xero login details

Step 4 - Xero will send you a code to complete two factor authentication. Enter the code once it is received.

Step 5 - Payapps will request permission to access your Xero data so that it can integrate with it. Select 'Allow Access' to proceed.

Step 6 - Now you will be redirected back to the Payapps Add-Ons page. Turn on 'Enable Accounts Receivable'.

Step 7 - Nominate your Xero Settings:
Generate Invoices on claim - this generates the invoice upon submission of the claim
Generates invoice on approval - this generates the invoice upon the approval of the claim.
Credit Term - How many days from the invoices creation is the due date for payment
Invoice Status - What status is assigned to the invoice when it's generated in Xero
Revenue Account - What account do you want to be used in Xero
