If you and your customers or suppliers are using both Xero you can send an invoice or bill directly into their Xero (in draft form) once they have shared their Xero Network Key rather than emailing.
Each Xero organisation has a unique and private Xero Network Key which you can share to enable sending invoices and bills through the Xero to Xero network.
Note that organisations with your key don't get access to log in or see any of your organisation's data.
How it works:
- Sharing an approved sales invoices to a customer will automatically appear on their Xero account as a draft Bill.
- Sharing a Bill to a supplier will automatically appear on their Xero account as a draft sales invoice. This can be useful if you are using Recipient Created Tax Invoices (RCTIs) (in Asustralia) to generate invoices on behalf of your suppliers.
To enable this, you will have to enter the Xero network key to a contact name before you can start sharing sales invoices and bills through the Xero to Xero network. Ask you customer or supplier to go into Settings and follow these instructions to send their Xero network key to you.
Ideally, this is another way to share a sales invoice or a bill to a client/vendor using Xero instead of emailing them the copy of the invoice.
