Products created in Brightpearl are pushed to Xero by the connector. Items are linked by SKU, such that if a SKU exists in Xero and is subsequently created in Brightpearl then the two products will become linked. Brightpearl is the product master, i.e. changes made in Brightpearl are reflected in Xero, but not the other way round.
Inventory tracking must be disabled in Xero. If you currently have inventory managed items in Xero, they must be switched to non-tracked.
Fields between Brightpearl and Xero are mapped as follows:
|Item name||Item name|
|Long description (or item name if blank)||Purchases description|
|Long description (or item name if blank)||Sales description|
|Cost price (mapped in the connector config)||Purchase unit price|
|Sales price (mapped in the connector config)||Selling unit price|
The cost of goods sold, sales and inventory asset accounts used in Xero are taken from Xero configuration (these fields are not mapped from Brightpearl).
Products are fetched from Brightpearl and posted to Xero every 30 minutes. They can then be viewed in Xero by navigating to Business > Products and Services.
