One of the core reasons behind the unsurpassable success of QuickBooks is the ability to connect your Bank Account directly to QuickBooks and download the transaction data seamlessly. This feature helps in managing your expenses via your banking card or credit card. A User can save the time they would spend in searching for each transaction manually by using QuickBooks. The data from your Bank can be imported to your QuickBooks with just a couple of clicks.

You have two options for downloading the transactions:

  • Direct Connect – Easily login into your Bank from within QuickBooks.
  • Web Connect – The User will download a file from the official Bank Website and then import that file into QuickBooks

Your Bank may only provide one of the options and may set it automatically default during the setup process. The charges for Direct Connect with Bank feeds depend on the Bank that you are using for your financial transactions. You will be easily able to track transaction data entries, bank feeds, reconcile and add missing transactions with highly accurate and timely reporting.
