syncforynab.com - UK (and soon more of Europe) Direct Import

Hey

A lot of our customers tell me that they wish they knew about Sync for YNAB earlier, so I figured I would post it here for anyone who does not know about it already.

I started an Open Source project a few years ago with the aim of syncing UK banking data to YNAB. This works really well, and hundreds of people are using it. The main feedback I got from that was that people did not want to learn how to host the application themselves.

In November, I set up syncforynab.com, which is essentially a hosted version of that open source application, with a lot more bank coverage.

We provide syncing from the following banks to YNAB: American Express, Barclaycard, Barclays, Bank of Scotland, The Co-operative Bank, first direct, Halifax, HSBC, Isle of Man Bank, Lloyds, Lloyds Business, M&S Bank, Metro Bank, MBNA, Monzo, N26, Nationwide, NatWest, RBS, Starling, Santander, Tesco Bank, TSB, Ulster Bank, and Virgin Money Credit Card.

If you are interested, head over to syncforynab.com for a free 7 day trial.

  • It's a little troubling that just over a month after launched the website you put it all up for sale on Transferslot, it doesn't fill me with confidence that the service will be around for very long.

      Blue Packet Not at all. I like building things, but at the time of putting it up for sale, i didn't have much time to run it. But here we are, nearly a year since launch, going strong. I have rejected many offers, because i wasn't confident they would do the right things for the customers.

    • Scott Robertson Good to know, hope you can understand why I'd google the site while considering whether to use it! Personally I like YNAB4 but will be pushed to nYNAB if I update my Mac OS to Catalina and the lack of the single best feature outside of the US really gets my goat, to put it mildly.

      Orange Ink Eventually, but right now they are only available from 1 data provider, and it does not make financial sense at the moment to pay for that provider just for 1 bank.

  • Oh, this looks awesome! We are just getting started with YNAB. I was very happy to see we can sync our bank info using your website. It will make things so much easier having everything automatically synced for us. Thanks!

  • I subscribed recently when I finally switched from YNAB4 to nYNAB, and Sync is amazing. Why YNAB keep telling us they can't implement this in the app themselves I don't fully understand, but for now I'm very happy with Sync for YNAB, and happy paying the fee to never have to manually note transactions, or keep importing them all myself.

  • Hi Scott ,

     

    Any possibility to use syncforynab.com with Canadian banks. YNAB stopped supporting many of the Canadian banks about 18 months including BMO and it would be very useful for Canadian users of YNAB to have this solution.

     

    Finally, can you support HSBC Canada?

     

    Thank you

  • Hi Scott, It's great that you have bridged the gap between YNAB and many financial institutions. So, well done on that.

    I have two questions:

    1. What is the maximum number of banks that your application can connect to under one account / subscription?

    2. Would you consider adding some Indian banks such as SBI (State Bank of India), Bank of Baroda etc? These are banks based in the UK.

    Would love to hear from you.

    Cheers

    Raj

      Green Gazelle Hey

      1) The default is 5 bank connections. Each connection can return as many bank accounts that are linked to that bank login though. You can increase this limit in your settings.

      2) No plans for them at the moment sadly.
