We were sad to hear recent news that Wesabe, an early pioneer of online financial software, is closing down this month. We always admired their work. The consumer space is very difficult to monetize, which is why we’ve taken the approach of linking personal financial management with business.
We don’t want to leave Wesabe users stranded. Some people might be inclined to seek another free alternative to Wesabe, but the hidden price for those services is having your personal data sold to marketing companies and advertisers.
That’s why we created Xero Personal as a low-cost, but sustainable service.
We have a significant product update of Xero Personal coming out very soon and we’re aiming to have the Wesabe importer available by then.
If you’re interested, it would help to know
- How many months of transactions you want to transfer
- The total number of transactions
- The file size of your Wesabe file
Please let us know in the comments below or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Better still, you can anonymously and securely upload your data file for us to test. We appreciate that it takes trust to transfer your data, so we encourage you to read all about our privacy and security policies at Xero.
For those transferring from Wesabe, we’d love your feedback on ways we can make the transition easier and hear your ideas for making further enhancements to Xero.
