*The reconciliation with Stripe only works when invoices are processed via Xero, not coming in from elsewhere using Stripe. Additionally, surcharge fees don't reconcile completely.
|Multi-invoice / Batch Payments|
|Automated variable invoice payments|
|On-charge fees||Yes, but*|
*Stripe only allow you to pass on the percentage portion, not the fixed. They also don't adjust the fee to pass on, based on the card type (international etc). It's also a global setting with no per-customer override.
*Subscriptions are tied to a single repeating invoice cycle in Xero. So each one needs to be maintained separately. Not great when you have 1,000 subscribers. Although Stripe has a good Subscription module, it doesn't integrate / reconcile with Xero.
