Kiwibank banking on iPhone

Well done Kiwibank! They’ve just released an iPhone version of online banking.

It’s very similar to the Xero for iPhone version, letting you see your account balances and recent transactions. It also lets you transfer money between your Kiwibank accounts.

Of course, the big advantage of using Xero on your iPhone is that you have access to transaction data from all your banking providers, plus all of your invoicing data, to give you a complete cash flow overview.

Hi

When we first started we used the Kiwibank feeds. However the information coming from Kiwibank did not include a lot of the required reference fields.

I have asked if this has been resolved both at Xero and Kiwibank, and it appears it is still pending being fixed.

What I find interesting is that Xero is advertising support for Kiwibank live feeds, however it is not fully supported so is a little mis-leading.

Is there any update on this as it would be great to use this instead of manually importing.

Hi Jason,
Appreciate you are keen to get back to using the automated feeds. Kiwibank are aware of the limitations of the current feed data and have a project underway to improve this. The last update we had was that the new feeds could be available in March. We’ll pass on any updates to this timeframe as soon as we receive them.
