Send your Xero network key to another Xero organization

If you want another Xero organization to send invoices or bills straight into yours, send them your Xero network key. They'll need to add the key to your contact details in Xero, then elect to send invoices and bills to you using Xero to Xero. You'll need the Standard or Advisor user role to manage network keys.

About your Xero network key

  • Each Xero organization has a unique and private network key. You'll only find out which organizations use Xero through your business dealings with them. You'll need to ask them for their network key.
  • Organizations with your key don't get access to log in or see any of your organization's data.
  • When an organization that has your key sends you a Xero to Xero sales invoice, you'll receive it as a draft bill. You'll need to choose the account and tracking for the bill. You can only receive bills from Xero to Xero that don't have tax adjustments or credit notes. You can't receive credit notes or any other types of transactions.
  • Subscription invoices can't be sent by giving Xero your network key.
