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? 

Thanks :)

  • Yeah most non-US banks don't work with the import as the 3rd party vendor doesn't support them.

  • 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.

    • Hi Cornflower Blue Hammerhead !

      When we first launched the web version of YNAB, we only had one import partner. Since then, we've added two more in hopes of expanding the number of financial institutions offered and increase the stability of the connections. We're currently looking into ways to improve the direct import experience, but since our current import partners have moved away from supporting international institutions, supporting Israeli banks is not in our plans for the immediate future.

    • Faness well that's really too bad, and sad because I liked YNAB, but it's not worth the price with so much manual work expected by the customer. 

      You should at least offer a different price plans when bank imports are not used.

    • Cornflower Blue Hammerhead We'll continue to explore all of the possibilities. I hope you’ve had a chance to try our other transaction entry options, though understand if they're not for you.
