5 Xero apps to aid bookkeeping for Amazon sellers

Being an e-commerce entrepreneur doesn’t mean you want to be a bookkeeper. We understand that you need to concentrate on the big picture and minimise the time it takes to complete bookkeeping and administrative tasks. Here are some apps to help you cut back on your admin time and increase your productivity and we especially cover software to support bookkeeping for Amazon sellers.

Why use Xero apps and integrations?

Xero is a popular cloud accounting software and at Unicorn Accounting, we believe it is one of the best accountancy aids for e-commerce entrepreneurs. Both businesses big and small can use Xero to manage finances, invoices, payroll, and bookkeeping.

With Xero apps and integrations, e-commerce business owners can get access to specialised tools designed to streamline workflows by automating data transfers. What’s more, it’s easy to convert your old accounting and bookkeeping setup to Xero meaning you can get up and running almost immediately.

How can I get the most out of Xero apps and integrations?

To get the most out of Xero apps and integrations, it is important to consider your unique business needs, challenges, and goals. This will help you choose the integrations that will offer the most benefits to your business.

There are so many apps and integrations to choose from via Xero software so it can pay off to explore the Xero App Marketplace to discover the apps available, read reviews, compare features, and pricing options.

Starting at £40 a month, this convenient app works with Amazon, but also with other platforms such as Shopify, Etsy, etc. It will allow you to automate invoices to your accountancy software, ensuring your accounts are always up to date in that regard. It will pull in your sales data, group it as per your preference and even auto-approve each invoice so it will be logged as approved or paid. Expandly even calculates taxes on your invoices, although we would always advise you to run these figures past your accountant.

You can also use it to automatically log sales in the right category, ledger and bank account. Amazon sellers also love it’s integration to common shipping carriers such as Royal Mail and Hermes.

It’s also a great inventory manager, whether you are using Amazon in the UK marketplace or across the globe.


Calculating VAT for e-commerce is a tricky business and we always recommend you seek advice from an accountant in each country in which you are trading. That being said, Weava is an excellent tool that can calculate your VAT liability from your Amazon sales in the UK, and across the EU.

While this is a great tool for estimation purposes, the complexities of VAT for Amazon sellers are such that you should still run your figures by an e-commerce specialist accountant to ensure total compliance.
