Integrating Clover with Xero is simple with PayTraQer. Just a few clicks for set-up and your Clover transactions are automatically synced to Xero
Steps for Integrating Xero and Clover
Connect your Xero company with PayTraQer, as directed in this article. Once your Xero account is connected, you will be navigated to the Payment Systems screen, where you can select the Clover tile. Once clicked, a new window opens up redirecting to the Clover screen for granting permission.
1) Login to your Clover account with your user credentials to grant permissions. This connection is private and read-only. You can disconnect it anytime through the settings.
2) Once your connection is authorized by Clover, you will be redirected to the PayTraQer screen. Click ‘Next’ to proceed. Your Clover account will be connected to PayTraQer.
3) You will then have to do some minimal settings for seamless integration.
Express Settings: This is the default setting recommended by the pro-advisors, and it works perfectly for your Clover integration. You can click 'OK, Let's Start' to begin with these Express settings. You can change these configurations later through the settings
