Westpac (Australia) bank feed update

Back in July we flagged we would be working on a direct bank feed with Westpac in Australia.

This project is well advanced and testing has begun. Assuming we don’t encounter any major issues, we’re looking to make these automated daily bank feeds available for Westpac customers in Australia on Monday September 27.

This is very exciting, as with Westpac feeds live, Xero will have direct bank feeds with all four of the big Australian banks. Our upcoming integration with Yodlee will then extend bank feed coverage to most of the other Australian banks – we’ll have an update on the Yodlee project in the next day or so.

Once the Westpac feeds are released, customers who are keen to receive them (and yes we know there are a few of you!) will need to complete a Westpac Customer Authority Form to register your account(s) for automated feeds. A link to Help Centre will appear in the header of your Westpac bank account on Xero, which directs you to the form and instructions on how to complete this.

Yeah! At last. Thanks for getting WBC happening. Will it include credit card accounts or does my client have to wait for yodlee?

@Jen unfortunately the Westpac bank feed doesn’t include credit cards, but yes we are looking to make these available through the Yodlee integration.
@Clint St George still operates on a separate banking system to Westpac so these accounts aren’t yet available on the Westpac feed. St George accounts will be available through Yodlee.

Does the westpac feed work with credit card accounts now?

I saw a separate article saying that Xero does CC feeds from ANZ and Westpac now.

Anything special needed or just the standard westpac authority form?

Hi Arun,
Yes, Westpac credit card feeds are available. These are provided using a data gathering service called Yodlee. Make sure that your card is setup with an account type of credit card, then click the Get Bank Feeds button on the account and you will be stepped through the feed setup process in Xero.

Hi Arun,
Any chance you have westpac foreign currency accounts set up yet?

Hi Arun, When we established the bank feeds with Westpac in Australia they were unable to include foreign currency accounts in the data feed. Will check to see if there is any update on their availability.
