Upload Statements
In addition to automatic sync, Buxfer supports manually uploading data from your bank. You may want to do so if your bank is not supported for sync, or if you'd rather not enter your banking password on a service you don't trust yet.
You can also use this feature to enter historical data you may have in a different financial software such as Quicken, MS Money, Mint.com, YNAB, Personal Capital among others.
How it works
  • Download a statement from your bank in a supported format: Excel, OFX, QFX, QIF.
  • Upload the statement to Buxfer. You may be asked to provide more information (e.g., date format).
  • Buxfer can remind you when your next statement is due.
