Importing Israeli Banks
Just downloaded the app, and I think it's amazing. But unfortunately I've found out that I can't connect neither Israeli Leumi bank account neither MasterCard.
Do anybody know how to solve the issue?
We're closing out Bank Importing threads in the forum to make sure these issues are better resolved.
Replies in this thread have been turned off, but you can still suggest new banks (even international banks) in the app, if you haven’t already!
If you’re having trouble connecting to a bank in the US or Canada, please fill out this form and our Direct Import team will help you get things back up and running! :)
Hi Khaki Wrench !
Jenmas is right. Our Direct Import partner moved away from supporting international banks, so you won't be able to connect to Israeli institutions.
However, we do have a few other features to help make entering transactions easy and fast at this point!
- File Based Importing: You can import your transactions by downloading a transaction file (typically OFX or QFX files) from your bank and then importing that file to YNAB.
- Upcoming Transactions: You can plan for future transactions, including repeating ones, right in the account register. Select the frequency of the transaction by using the drop-down menu below the calendar.
- Mobile apps: We have new apps for iPhone/iPad and Android.
Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you get started! :)
It's a bit annoying considering that many competing apps do connect to Israeli banks (Toshl, Spendee, Finanda). I don't see why ynab can't add support for it. Using SaltEdge as an additional provider would solve this issue. I find that I spend so much time importing data, that by the time I need to set/adjust the budget, I'm just too tired to continue. It's not really practical without automatic imports.
