For peace of mind and added security PC2Paper have introduced Two Factor Authentication. Two factor authentication is more secure because when you log into your account using your username and password you will be presented with an additional step that will ask you to enter a Two Factor Authentication code which is generated automatically on your mobile phone.

To use Two Factor Authentication you will need

  • Android or an Apple iOS phone
  • Download the Google Authenticator app to your phone

To enable Two Factor Authentication on your PC2Paper account

  1. Log into your PC2Paper Account.
  2. Click on your name in the top right hand corner and select "Security & Compliance" from the drop down menu
  3. When you arrive on the Security & Compliance page select Two Factor Authentication and follow the process from this page.

Please note: On the last step you will be presented with a QR code you will need to scan using the Google Authenticator app from your phone. It is important you complete this part of the process or you will not have a code to log into your account when you next log in. If for some reason you are unable to complete this process or your phone won't scan the QR code, please press the "Disable Two Factor Authentication" button.

Logging into the site

Log into the PC2Paper website the same way you always do. However after you have entered your username and password and clicked "Sign In" you will be presented with another page that will ask you for the Two Factor Authentication code. Please note, you do not need to enter any spaces when entering this code, you just need to enter the numbers you see on your phone screen.

PC2Paper now enables you to send your invoices from Xero as a real postal letter using our Email to Letter Gateway.

Several of our users use Xero and have requested this feature on our Email To Letter Gateway. If you have any feedback on how it works or would like to suggest a feature, please let us know.

How it works

Xero has the ability to email invoices, you can use this functionality to email your invoices to our Email to Letter gateway which will send it through the postal system for you.

In order to use this feature you will need to setup a PC2paper account and enable the Email to letter Gateway on your account using the ReplyTo address you have setup on your Xero account. Please note that using the ReplyTo Address from your Xero account is important and you cannot use the generic Xero from email address.

After you have setup the Email To Letter Gateway go into Xero.

  • Select the invoice you would like to email
  • Enter the PC2Paper email to letter gateway email address as the recipient of the email
  • Place the address of the recipient of the invoice in the subject line of the email, this has to be a comma separated address for example:

    Joe Blogs, 2 Acme Lane, Some Town, County, Postcode, United Kingdom

    (Please note you must include the country name at the end)
  • Hit Send

Note: You can use the body of the email as a separate cover page that will be sent with your letter. You can also configure the Email To Letter Gateway to ignore the cover page.

After sending your invoice you should receive a confirmation from our email to letter gateway that your letter has been accepted.
