More direct bank feeds down under

Four more financial institutions in Australasia are now supplying direct feeds to Xero business customers – Macquarie, Hume Building Society, Heartland Building Society and The Co-operative Bank (formerly PSIS).

You can find out more in our Help Centre about how to apply for your feeds. Xero has direct feed relationships with all the major banks in New Zealand and Australia, and we are frequently adding more. If your bank or financial institution isn’t on our list of direct feeds then we strongly encourage you to get in touch with them and give them a nudge in our direction. Many have offered to supply banking or credit card feeds through Xero after prompting from customers, whether we’ve already been talking to them or not.

There’s a lot of additional value available in a closer relationship between financial institutions and your accounting software, involving deeper integration and new features. At Xero we are working hard to unlock this opportunity on your behalf.

For the four new financial institutions, here’s the detail on when they will be available:


Macquarie will soon supply Xero with data directly from their accounts on a daily basis. Customers that are currently using Yodlee feeds to receive data from Macquarie should leave them running for now. Those customers will be notified over the next few days with instructions for transitioning to direct feeds. Feeds will be available from early November, but you can begin the application process from today. Macquarie kicks off the next wave of major Australian banks supplying data directly to Xero customers.

Hume Building Society

Hume joins Xero as the first Australian building society to offer direct daily feeds to Xero for their customers. Hume is an award-winning bank that will be well-known to Australian customers in Victoria and New South Wales. Feeds are available from today.

Heartland Building Society

Heartland (including Canterbury Building Society) is now offering direct feeds to Xero for their customers. Heartland Building Society is a popular choice for small New Zealand businesses and farms throughout the country. Feeds are available from today.

The Co-operative Bank

The Co-operative Bank (formerly PSIS), New Zealand’s newest registered bank, is now offering direct feeds to Xero for their customers. Feeds are available from today.

We’re excited to welcome the four new institutions to this partnership with Xero.

Very excited that Hume Building Society now has Bank Feeds. We are a Xero convert and GeoOP user. Awesome software. We just need Hume to now have bank feeds for their Business Credit Cards as well as Business Bank Accounts :-).
