Once your bank feeds have been activated, transaction data from the accounts you have registered for the service will be sent to your accounting software provider on a daily basis.*

What else might I want to know about bank feeds?

Yes, you can link multiple accounts at once. Please refer to our How to set up (or disconnect) bank feeds guide to find out how.

Please allow up to one business day for the link to your software to be activated.

You may need to ask your provider if they are registered with Westpac.

User changes will not impact or delete bank feeds once they have been connected. However, you may choose to disconnect your feeds if User access or network access levels are changing. Please refer to our How to set up (or disconnect) bank feeds guide to find out how.

Most Westpac business transaction and savings accounts can be linked to bank feeds through Online Banking. Accounts with multiple authorisations for transactions, credit cards and loan accounts are not able to be linked.

 

If you wish to import transactions to your accounting software for current credit cards or loans, you can export the transactions by following our step-by-step How to export a detailed transaction history guide.

Things you should know

Read the Westpac Online Banking Terms and Conditions (PDF 310KB) before making a decision.

*Not all accounts are eligible to be connected via a bank feed. These can include loan accounts and accounts requiring multiple authorisations for transactions.

Note: Your bank feed must be set up with your third-party service provider (software company) before it can be connected in Westpac Online Banking. If your software company does not appear in the drop down menu in Westpac Online Banking, you may need to check that it is registered with Westpac. Should there be any changes in your user access or network access levels, you may wish to disconnect your bank feed(s) as any such changes will have no impact on your bank feeds.
