Xero automatically creates a new Contact for every merchant that has a different name than you have in your existing contacts. This creates alot of frustration for users, as it creates new contacts for every branch of a company as well. For example, some users can thus ended up with hundreds of contacts for Sainsbury's or Costa coffee.
To get around this, we have defaulted all merchant names to "Soldo Ltd", and users can select a "Xero Supplier" to override this default where needed (such as for large purchases).
The list of Xero Suppliers imports your Contacts from Xero at the point of setting up the integration. If you wish to add a supplier to the list in Soldo, then click here.
