Our Xero bill payment integration, allows you to create a pay run directly from Xero without having to download payment files. Any changed that then happen to the bills in Telleroo are reflected in Xero.

Set up your Xero contacts

Any suppliers you want to pay using the bill payments sync need to have their bank details added to Xero. Below is how to add these:

  1. Contacts > All Contacts > Select a contact > Edit.

  2. Find the batch payments section

  3. Add the sort code, then account number. This can be formatted with or without spaces and hyphens.

( Top tip: If a supplier always requires a fixed reference, you can enter this into the details input below. This will always be used as the reference whenever a bill is created in Telleroo )
