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.
