Pros

I love the app and gives me accounting on the go. Helps me track invoices and profits with ease.

Anonymous Reviewer

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.

HS

Pros

The integration with QBO is fantastic. The ability to have send cheques as an option is also great when certain suppliers are still holding out on accepting EFTs.

GR

Graham R.

I love the functionality of being able to process payroll to my team. The ease of that as opposed to sending checks is great.

I have had a great experience with Plooto, it is very easy to use and it is great you can set up bill approvals as this is a must with some clients.

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.

CB

Cons

It should be $600 Candian regardless of what the conversions are. You do this on payables but not receivables which is aggravating.

LJ

Customer service has been a struggle for us. It is hard to get in touch with someone when we have questions or concerns.

I have been struggling to get the PAD setup for my customers and find it hard to not have access to telephone customer support.

Pros

Easy of use, search feature, mobile app.

I don't like bookkeeping, but Xero makes it much more tolerable.

It's not excellent, but we don't have a choice.

Automatic payment reconciliation with XERO and recurring payment setup.

Pros

some amount for transaction - it's like eTransfer price, but XERO integration with automatic reconciliation is additional benefit. Also recurring payment setup ability.

Cons

Fife (5) days for transfer transaction! It is like cheque holding by Bank! Why? eTransfer need from several minutes for it...
