Sync Australian bank transactions to YNAB with Budget Feeder
I've recently announced the public launch of Budget Feeder for YNAB.
Budget feeder connects to around 150 Australian Banks and credit cards, and makes use of the YNAB API (although we're not affiliated with YNAB) to sync them right into your budget automatically.
You're welcome to take it for a spin, free trial available at https://www.budgetfeeder.com/
I’ve been using https://www.budgetfeeder.com/ since it launched and it works great!
Im using it for my CBA, ING and Amex account syncing.
The support from them is also awesome. I’d highly recommend using Budget Feeder if you are an Aussie YNABBER :)
Yeah nothing to be concerned about, they take security pretty seriously: https://www.budgetfeeder.com/security/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAxfzvBRCZARIsAGA7YMw02FgBXpoAT61ekvqyJoN7pVFmi73n3yi9e6NXhwUwmMPcFaMizuAaAiPLEALw_wcB
Hi budgetfeeder !
Thank you for taking the time to share Budget Feeder with your fellow YNABers! :)
I know you mentioned not being affiliated with YNAB, but I did want to clarify that Budget Feeder has been approved by our API team as an add-on that complies with our API standards and Works with YNAB.
I hope you see a number of Australian YNABers give it a try!
Before you endorse this company, you need to be aware of their terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of at least one bank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
Here is an extract of the terms and conditions for budgetfeeder.com:
Your obligations as a Member
As a Member, you agree to comply with the following: (a) you will use the Services only for purposes that are permitted by: i. the Terms; and ii. any applicable law, regulation or generally accepted practices or guidelines in the relevant jurisdictions; (b) you have the sole responsibility for protecting the confidentiality of your password and/or email address. Use of your password by any other person may result in the immediate cancellation of the Services; (c) any use of your registration information by any other person, or third parties, is strictly prohibited. You agree to immediately notify Budget Feeder of any unauthorised use of your password or email address or any breach of security of which you have become aware; (d) access and use of the Website is limited, non-transferable and allows for the sole use of the Website by you for the purposes of Budget Feeder providing the Services; (e) you will not use the Services or the Website in connection with any commercial endeavours except those that are specifically endorsed or approved by the management of Budget Feeder; (f) you will not use the Services or Website for any illegal and/or unauthorised use (g) you acknowledge and agree that any automated use of the Website or its Services is prohibited.
Commonwealth Bank also has strict conditions which prohibit the disclosure of client ID and password.
Budgetfeeder.com expects people to honour their own terms and conditions, but is happy for customers to ignore the terms and conditions of this bank. I expect that is the case for other banks, but I am only a customer of this bank.
I confirmed this by telephone with my bank today.
Both 3rd-party sync apps look great. BUT is YNAB really not planning to support native sync with Aussie banks? I like YNAB, but for a budget app, the cost is a bit hard to justify - US$11.99/mo is already more than AUD$18, add another $6. That's AU$24/mo!
Maybe it's just me, but i like YNAB for the clean interface, not because it "saved me from debt." I'm a savvy or stingy saver from the start. So as an Australian user, it will be worth it if we can at least have this feature (same as US customers). Are there any such plans?
