Connecting Xero to Lightspeed Accounting

Lightspeed Accounting connections are structured around stores as defined in your Lightspeed Retail account. 

Once you have connected your Lightspeed Retail account with Lightspeed Accounting, you can connect a store to a Xero company. If you have more than one store, each store can either share the same Exact Online company connection or have its own connection.
