Installing Fooman Connect: Xero (M2) Monthly Version - From Fooman website

Note: These instructions apply to installing the monthly version of Fooman Connect: Xero downloaded from the Fooman website. 
If you want to install the license purchase version of Fooman Connect: Xero, follow these installation instructions.

Option 1: Preferred Installation Method (Fooman-Hosted Repository)

Fooman will host your extension and will automatically push new extension updates to your repository, ready for you to pull/update in the future. 

The advantages of this approach are:

  • Saves time installing 
  • Saves time on installing future extension updates (you don’t need to manually download these from the Fooman website and repeat the installation process each time)
  • Helps to avoid common errors some people make when using the manual installation method
  • It integrates better with a multi-stage deployment process

New extension updates will be pushed automatically to this repository for as long as your support/update period is valid.
