I'd welcome perspective on anyone using FoxyCart to push customer or order data into Xero.com via the API.
I understand there's a straight forward enough process to get 'invoices' and 'customers' into Xero via their API. And I understand FoxyCart can likely push that data in there to spec.
But here's the bigger business objective / question; maybe others know the obvious answer:
1. ecommerce shopper places order on website via FoxyCart (and items are all in same category, or split among categories)
2. order data containing customer info is pushed from FoxyCart into Xero, creating an invoice / customer record (and that invoice has one or more line items, which might correspond to one or more income accounts in Xero).
3. a day or so later, the payment processor (Visa /Mastercard) places a deposit in a bank account for the prior day's batch. That deposit shows up as income in Xero, via the bank's feed showing income deposits.
So how to get that deposit of income matched up / tied into those earlier invoices created in Xero by FoxyCart's API?
I realize this may be better posted on the Xero.com forum, and I'm reaching out to Xero resources. I also realize that Xero isn't necessarily an order management system and maybe ought not have a record of individual customers...
Still, I've observed that the FoxyCart guys have some interest in Xero. Maybe others on this forum would welcome some Xero discussion.
Also am willing to hire someone to help me with this topic.
