Important: As of 30 November 2021, the old integration built by Xero will no longer be supported and all functionality will cease. After this date, your transaction or payment data will not flow or appear in Xero. Prior to this date, sellers with the old integration are encouraged to migrate to the Amaka integration to continue data sync capabilities.
