Introducing A2X for Shopify - our new Shopify to Accounting connector - Find out more .

Inventory apps
Companies start using Inventory Apps to automate tracking of:

  • Purchase Orders and Sales Orders
  • General availability of stock
  • Use of different inventory accounting methods (LIFO, FIFO)
  • Teams working in different locations
  • Sequences of tasks that move stock (Pick, Pack, Ship, Transfer)
  • Multi-channel or multiple locations of stores

There are tons of inventory apps that integrate with Amazon and Shopify and yet only some integrate with Xero or QuickBooks Online.

Their numbers raise the question:
How important is it to integrate inventory apps with accounting apps?

The popular Inventory apps that accomplish the above and integrate with Amazon/Shopify and Xero are:

How does it integrate with Xero?

It integrates both ways, but the main concern is the data flowing from Dear.

  • Imports Bills or Purchases Orders
  • Imports Purchase Credit Notes
  • Imports Sale Quotes/Estimates
  • Imports Sales Invoices
  • Imports Credit Memos and Sales Credit Notes
  • Imports Cost of Goods Sold
  • Imports Inventory Adjustments

Which of these data integration points duplicate A2X Data?

Following ones:

  • Sales Orders
  • Sales Credit Notes
  • Cost of Goods Sold
  • Inventory Adjustments

What is the difference and benefit in how A2X does it?

A2X entries record the sales for a settlement period along with the fees and other cash-related transactions. One entry can record multiple sales and fees and reconcile to the matching settlement deposit from Amazon/Shopify. It saves on reconciling multiple sales orders and manual entry of other fees and transactions.

DEAR can also produce settlement entries, however, according to Conrad Rohleder of Clearinity, "Here are 5 reasons why I still have clients shut this off in DEAR and manage it in A2X only:

An additional benefit is A2X's ability to generate Cost of Goods Sold entries by settlement period and Inventory Valuations monthly. With a direct integration to Amazon/Shopify Inventory, A2X generates numbers sold in a settlement period and remaining stock at month end. It is a valuable checks and balances feature.

What are the options for turning any of these integration points off?

With Dear Inventory, you cannot pick and choose what to and what not to integrate with any ease, so it is best not to integrate Dear with Xero when using A2X.

Do you lose any automation by turning them off?

Not for Amazon channels. If you have other channels, periodic journal entries may be the way to go.
