When you sync sales orders that you’ve created in vintrace, it creates an accounts receivable invoice in Xero with the customer’s information. This lets you manage the debt and any payments for that invoice from within Xero. Because the customer’s information is also with the invoice, it’s not necessary for the customer to pre-exist in Xero.
Setting Up and Linking Revenue Accounts
Be sure to set up your revenue accounts in vintrace and link them to Xero by entering the account code from Xero in vintrace.
You can link a revenue account to each item in a sales price list so that it’s selected by default when you add the item to a sales order.
Or, you can manually select the account each time you add the item to a sales order.
