How it works?
When your bookkeeper enters and approves bills in Xero, Bluechain automatically generates a payment request and sends it to your Bluechain app. Schedule or pay immediately with the your chosen card to earn rewards and take advantage of interest free terms.
Bluechain will update Xero with the relevant payment details, saving you time on reconciliation. Bluechain also updates the history on the bill to ensure you, and your bookkeeper, know exactly where your payments are at.
3 Simple steps to get you up and running :
