This has been raised in discussion posts and also submitted to Live Accouns ideas forum but I would like to re-iterate for Account Right Plus.

 

Desperately need to see Amex in bank feeds, we have many hundreds of transactions that could be automated if Amex was supported.


Thanks

 

"Bank Feed for American Express issued by Amex"

Thank you all for your post, comments and votes. We are currently in discussions with AMEX on providing AMEX feeds to your file. We will be back shortly with further details including the timing for delivering AMEX feeds. Thank you for your patience in the meantime. We also encourage others who would like this to continue voting on the idea.

Hello Leanne,

 

i agree that this is needed sooner rather than later, along with Diners and those cards associated with GE Finance such as the Coles Mastercard.

 

However my clients using AMEX  now use the MYOB Get Statements feature to import the QIF file. see this Support note -

Hi @dhalim 

Thanks for showing your support for this Idea on the AccountRight Ideas Exchange. 

Currently you can only apply for an American Express bank feed that has been issued by a bank i.e. Westpac, ANZ. If the card has been issued directly by American Express you are unable to setup a bank feed for it. However this idea has been put forward to investigate and look into possibly offering that option in the future.

If you can obtain a copy of the bank/credit card transactions in an OFX, QFX, QIF and OFC format you could look at using the Banking>>Bank Register>>Get Statement feature. This is similar to bank feeds, it allows you to match your AccountRight transactions with your bank/credit card transactions. For more information into Get Statement please see Support Note: Importing bank statements using the "Get Statement" function

Once again thank you for showing your support by voting.

Hello David,

I quite agree that MYOB neeeds to arrange for AMEX, Diners and GE Finance issued Cards (such as Coles MasterCard etc) to be available via Bank Feeds.

 

There is however an alternative way to get AMEX details into MYOB by the use of the Get Statement function. While this does not enable rules to be setup it is quite an efficient way to speed up the processing. For more details have a look at this MYOB Support Note -

Hi @dhalim 

Are you able to confirm as to what MYOB program you are using - is it MYOB Essentials or MYOB AccountRIght?

Would dearly love to see Amercan Express issued AMEX cards on the bank feeds list. Surely there must be 1000s of users out there that would benefit from this? For such a large organisation and so  many users, the Get Statement alternative is a poor cousin and not as efficient. What is the problem with adding it to the list???

 PS I have already "voted" for this - I suspect most MYOB usres are unaware of this vote asystem and need to be alerteed to it if you ant to use it as a gauge of people's wants.
