Pros

I love the app and gives me accounting on the go. Helps me track invoices and profits with ease.
The ease of use and reputation are by far the greatest part of this product. In addition to this, the range of potential integrations is fantastic.
Really easy to submit expenses, categorise them and check the progress of you submitted expense - super easy to do all from the app.

Pros

The best feature has to be the pricing model. For Business running minimal personnel it is great for being able to start and grow your business.
It's a great and easy tool, just a few more features and will be perfect.
And then quickly help the customer. We are very satisfied with the product and all the new additions to come.

Cons

There are no delivery notes/packing slips. They tout a "workaround" but be warned, it's exactly 10 extra clicks so it's really not an option if you need this feature.
Our main complaint is that Xero stopped doing payroll in 2018, so now you have to pay an additional fee to a payroll processor such as Gusto.
Changing accounting software from Xero is a horrible experience. They make it very difficult to pivot to other software.

Cons

Support was unable to explain, poor "documentation" No go.
I still find the patching and scripting tools to be a bit of a bother.
The only part that is clumsy in my opinion is the patching. Rather than approving patches, you exclude patches.
