Exporting orders from Shopify to Xero

Xero app icon Go to the app store to install Xero

You can use Shopify's Xero app to export paid or fulfilled orders directly from your Shopify admin to your Xero account.

Exported orders include the following information:

  • order numbers
  • products
  • taxes
  • dates
  • payment information
  • customer details
  • billing addresses
  • shipping addresses
  • shipping costs.

Partially-refunded orders aren't included in exports.

If an order is only partially paid, then it won't be included when you export data from Shopify to Xero.


The Xero app doesn't manage your product inventory using the data that you export from Shopify. There are separate third-party apps available in the Shopify App Store that sync inventory data between Xero and your Shopify store.

You can configure how Xero organizes your order information by changing the Xero app settings in your Shopify admin.
