Xero is one of the many accounting software platforms that Expandly integrates with but less about us and more about them – who is Xero, what does it do and how can it help your eCommerce business. 


Xero provides online account software, designed to help small businesses save time and get paid quicker – allowing you to spend more time on growth.

From Kiwi to Poms

In 2006, Rod Drury was fed up with traditional desktop accounting software and looked to the clouds for inspiration. Xero Limited was formed, taking off to the moon and back as one of the fastest growing service software companies. In 2008 Xero expanded overseas to Australia and the United Kingdom, later launching in the US (2011) and Canada (2018).
