Credit provider Capital on Tap integrates with Xero
Business funding provider Capital on Tab has announced its integration with Xero’s full-featured API for bank feeds.
The new integration is aimed at providing business clients access to more financial information from their accounting dashboard, showing Capital on Tap card transactions automatically.
“These integrations have been requested from our small business subscribers time and time again,” said Ben Johnson, Xero's partnerships manager, platform business. “Digital feeds from a customer’s bank or card account into Xero saves a huge amount of time, and gives them a real-time view of their financial position.”
