If you collect your orders' payments with a third-party payment provider or specific gateways (outside Shopify Payments), our Reconcile.ly app will allow you to create a sales invoice for each order made from an external gateway in real-time and export it orders to Xero automatically- unless you set the app to exclude a particular gateway.

In your accounting system, these gateways may end up behaving like bank accounts of their own, so it's useful to have invoices on-hand for each order you receive to easily reconcile each deposit with a matching invoice. To ensure this, keep the 'Export direct orders' section enabled.

If the Export Direct Orders option is kept disabled, then no individual orders will be sent to Xero, only Shopify Payments payouts or orders.
