EU Bank Inporting
Hi, is there any possibility od future bank imports from European (well, for me it's Czech Republic) banks? All European banks should now have open API, so it should be possible...
Hi Michal Petricek !
Great question! As of now, none of our Direct Import partners support banks outside of the US/Canada (a few UK banks, but they're in testing!). 😊
While we don't have any official plans (or even non official plans), we're super excited about the recent Open Banking news and the possibilities it'll bring for data aggregation as a whole!
Hello there, very interested in the current status of this topic (for Switzerland here).
I would love to be able to link my bank-account to my YNAB-account. Your budgeting-system is great compared to the available alternatives here, however not being able to import my bank-data is difficult to accept.
Is there any reason your focus is on the US and Canada? I truly believe that support for popular EU-banks could increase your user base a lot!
Happy to hear from you.
Hi Faness !
Thank you for the excellent work on YNAB in general.
However, I think you can see that many EU YNAB customers are somehow frustrated on the way as they are treated by YNAB currently. I think the standard answer that a direct import is not within the immediate or near future is back many years now.
So maybe you can suggest a way, besides making a Feature Request or voting for institutions within YNAB. This topic needs to get to the right people within your company to reprioritise your product development for more international support.
Would be greatly appreciated.
I have been following this discussion for a while now. It is unfortunate that European banks are still not supported for direct import, this has been a requested feature for a very long time now. I have been using the manual import option for the past year but this is not a long term solution for me. The manual downloading, converting and then importing of the transactions is just to much work (especially if you have more than one account). And it also defeats one of the main purpose of YNAB. If I want to quickly check if I still have enough budget in one category before making a purchase, I can't trust my budget because the data in the App is at least a couple of days behind.
Is there a way to promote highly requested features?
Given the current situation I unfortunately won't be renewing my subscription after the current year passed. As soon as this feature is added, I will happily come back.
I understand the point of view of YNAB that they want to improve their US/Canada banking import first, but agree with other users that there should be parallel development for EU/UK banks. There are a huge number of users here in the EU and it's obvious that we're being left behind.
The point regarding the API access with banks, the new EU regulation PSD2 requires banks to provide API access for their customers. So this should no longer be a road block for YNAB.
Toshl Finance already has automatic importing and integration with a number of EU banks, even Germany ones - which are notoriously slow to adapt to new tech!

This is really a shame. I really like YNAB and the philosophy behind it, but as an EU paying customer, it really saddens me that after more that 2y this ticket was opened, there's still nothing, and it's not that there's a lack of possible partners for the integrations... here's one more to add to the list: https://tink.com/
Maybe it's lack of will or we aren't that many customers.
It would make a world of difference if you would prioritize this for your EU customers.
Bunq bank has an open API and with their API we can connect with direct feed from the bank to YNAB.
there is a docker which you can use to set it up very quickly. As far as I know it is the only and easiest bank to connect with YNAB in Europe
