Why are not all suppliers/customers imported?

Why are not all suppliers/customers imported?

The answer is they are there its just that Xero needs a transaction to classify them.

Xero automatically assigns contacts as suppliers and customers as soon as a bill or invoice are raised against them. If you look at the Contacts and think that suppliers or customers are missing, the contacts are there, but just not yet categorised as there are no bills/invoices raised against them. Just search for that contact in 'All'.

Xero does not allow for duplicate contacts, however, some software packages require the contact to be entered as both a supplier and a customer. If you have this scenario both contact entries will be added with a unique identifier added to one duplicate contact.

Post-conversion you can merge contacts - please make sure that you merge them into the most up to date contact details.
