We’re growing too, not just as a business, but in what we offer to our customers. In October, we kept up the pace on our quest to make Pleo integrate with all the top accounting systems. We also shipped some time-saving features.


Oh, and we’ve made referring Pleo much easier and more rewarding.


Product Updates


Xero Direct Feed

A feature that is sure to delight many admins and bookkeepers is our new Direct Feed integration with Xero.

This feature allows users’ Pleo transactions to automatically be imported directly into their Xero organisation, eliminating the need to import them manually (this excludes metadata). This provides admins and bookkeepers with a near-real-time overview of the Pleo activity in Xero, without having to wait for month-end. Enabling this is as easy as ticking the “Direct Feed” box in the “Accounting” section of the settings in the web app.

Another update we’ve made to the app in September is adding the very useful Suggested subcategories feature. As the name suggests, we’re making it easier for users to add a subcategory to an expense by showing the most likely subcategories. That’s based on the merchant info we have and the expense’s category.

Hopefully, this will make adding details to your expense an even faster and simpler process.

Quickbooks integration

In the last two months, we’ve introduced two new integrations to accounting systems: Fortnox and Xero Direct Feed. Later this month, we’re launching our third one: Quickbooks. Similar to most of our integrations, our Quickbooks one will allow for a seamless connection of your Quickbooks account with your Pleo one.

Once the integration is enabled, users will be able to export as they normally do. But instead of having to upload everything into Quickbooks, all of the data that appears on their Pleo expenses will automatically be pushed to their Quickbooks account. That includes the receipts, categories, VAT (also split VAT, if needed), classes, customers/projects, and any custom notes.

In-app referrals

We’ve made it easier to tell friends about Pleo! For the past three months, we’ve run a referral experiment and found that many users were interested in recommending Pleo to their network, but wanted a more intuitive way to do so. That’s why, in the latest version of our mobile app, we’ve added a neat new section where users can find their unique referral link to share with friends. Once a referral starts using Pleo, they’ll get their first two months for free and the referrer receives a €100 Amazon voucher (or international equivalent). It’s win-win!

TfL receipts

Transport for London is, naturally, a very common expense on Pleo cards. Using a Pleo card to pay for the Tube is a quick, easy and convenient way to take advantage of an employer’s commuting benefits. The downside, however, is that no receipts are provided by TfL, making every single tube ride a new expense that’s missing a receipt. In a few days, this will no longer be the case. We’re introducing a small but very powerful feature that auto generates a receipt for TfL purchases, as shown here.

A new export process

The way admins and bookkeepers are used to exporting expenses on Pleo is about to undergo a major transformation. Over the next few weeks, we’ll slowly phase out the date-range-only exporting process to make way for a more intuitive, continuous process.
