How to set up your Xero invoice connection

Please note this integration is only available to Airwallex accounts with entities based in Australia, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, and Singapore.

Also note that if this is your first time collecting payment via Airwallex, you will be required to submit additional information as part of the KYB process. You will be prompted to submit your application prior to setting up this integration. Airwallex will review your application and confirm the status within 5-7 days. Once your application is approved, you can come back to the Xero Invoice connections tab to complete the connection.

Steps to connect

  1. Log into your Airwallex account

  2. Select the “Connections” tab in the left-hand navigation bar

  3. Find the Xero Invoice Payment connections tile, and select “Connect.”

  4. If you are not yet logged into Xero, you will be prompted to log in. Enter your Xero log in.

  5. Choose the organisation within your Xero account you would like to connect to Airwallex (note: the organisation you select must be the same as the one you’ve used to connect your Xero bank feed in Airwallex)

  6. You will now be prompted to set Airwallex as the default payment service for your chosen branding themes. Branding themes (i.e. invoice templates) are native to your Xero account. When selecting Airwallex as a default payment service for a branding theme, all invoices created with that branding theme will automatically include an Airwallex payment link. You can edit your branding theme preferences in your Xero settings later.

  7. Once selected please click connect.

  8. Once successfully connected, please confirm the email address you’d like to receive real-time payment notifications at in Airwallex. You will be able to edit your email address in the web app by navigating to the ‘Account’ tab, selecting ‘Account details’, then ‘Contact information’ and updating the ‘Business email’ field.
