  • In addition to manual entry of transactions, Wave offers the ability to import your transactions in Microsoft Money (.OFX), Quickbooks (.QBO), Quicken (.QFX) or Simply Accounting (.ASO), and Comma Separated Value (.CSV) formats. If you are wondering about these methods, our Help Center is a great place to start. These import options make it easy t…

  • * On day one I set up the Paypal integration. It went into a bank account called "Paypal" * Many transactions were automatically imported into this account, which I categorized and reviewed * A few days later, Wave said my integration details needed to be updated * I re-entered my credentials, but it created a new account, which I renamed to "P…

  • I created a connection to my AMX credit card and put in date to start of 1-1-19. All it did was create one entry called starting balance with a category of owners equity. This entry is dated 12-31-18. Two questions. 1 What is this owners equity entry? I don't think it is correct to have this? (I pay the amx bill personally and reimburse …

  • When I initially connected my bank accounts, 3 months of transactions automatically uploaded. I wanted older data uploaded so I tried to manually upload a statement with past transactions. I realized that I had accidentally uploaded my spending history from all accounts under just my Business Checking account, which threw my totals completely off.…

  • I mistakenly linked a personal bank account to my Wave account. Now I'm getting a jumble of personal transactions mixed in with my modest business data. How do I eliminate the personal transactions that have been transferred so far? How do I disconnect (deconnect? unconnect?) the linked personal bank account. Please help... Dialogix

  • Wave does not seem to be compatible with HSBC Canada. The bank's website login sometimes asks for a birthday but Wave is completely unaware of this, requiring only a username & password (confirmed when I edit the login credentials). Also, Wave never asks for any of the security questions. Conversely, the HSBC USA connection does…

  • Hello. I have several bank connections to Wave, most of which work most of the time. (Some have been dead for about a year, despite the message “we are working on the issue”) However, I’m trying to add an additional HSBC UK connection. I complete all of the required fields (username, memorable answer, type of login, password), and after hitt…

  • I want to link my business credit card, but there is a remaining balance from last year's expenses which I already claimed on my taxes. How do I handle: 1. Beginning Credit Card balance. 2. Transfers (payments) to Credit Card account from my business account? Example: I've only accrued $1,500 in credit card expenses for the current year, but ha…

  • KBC bank is not supported by Waveapps. This script lets you import statements from your KBC account to Waveapps and manage your finances as if your KBC bank were supported. Check this repo and happy importing

  • Just signed up and a bit surprised that Tide is not available as a bank connection. Any plans on your roadmap to add them to Wave? Not being able to connect my business bank account is a bit of a deal breaker for me, so would just like to know if you guys plan to add Tide in the near future. Cheers!

  • I have connected to ING-DiBa Bank Germany successfully last week, but for 4 days the connection has stopped working. "There is a technical issue between Wave and your bank. We're on the case. Attempt to update in a few days and if it persists, visit our help center to investigate." No further details are provided and the help page is…

  • I am having issues connecting to my bank? Westpac NZ? I have read other discussions about issues with bank connections, but they all look to be resolved. Is anyone else in NZ having issues connecting with Westpac?

  • These 2 banks are becoming a bit of a phenomenon in the UK, taking over the industry, but Wave does not support them. Could you look into implementing these at some point.

  • Hi, I've recently started using wave. I did have my bank connected and statements were uploaded, however there were duplicates of a lot of entries so I deleted all transaction history, removed my bank account, and decided to start fresh. However, since I removed the bank account, it won't reconnect - I get the endless ping-ping loading symbol and…

  • Hi there, I have now setup Wave to do my Payroll, and also have a bank connection with my checking account that payroll is paid out of. That is resulting in 2 entries - 1 created by Payroll, and one for the withdrawal from my account - see the image to make that clear. Is there a way to merge the 2 (ideally automatically)? If not, do I just delet…

I first tried to connect my bank account (BNZ Business) but after entering my details and clicking the "connect" button, nothing happens. I have tried this on multiple browsers, …

  • Last week BMO rolled out new online banking and a new mobile app. I assume they also rolled out a new API. No one is able top provide any insight on or an ETA for reestablishing the connection. I was pointed to the manual procedure of downloading a Quickbooks file from the bank and importing into Wave. That requires watching for overlap as it …

  • I saw a thread on this from last year but the discussion is closed. I also see other people are currently having this problem currently. For the last few months my accounts are not updating accurately. I did all the things it said. Including deleting the accounts and adding the accounts again. It has the total correct but will not add the transac…

  • I've just signed up to Wave and I'm getting very fed up at not being able to connect to my bank account (HSBC UK). I've logged back into my bank account so I know my log in details are correct but I keep getting an error message from Wave, telling my my details are incorrect. I thought Wave was supposed to be easy?

  • Hi Everyone, I was wondering if connecting Revolut and Qonto will be possible in the near future? I am currently switching from Société Générale in France (which was integrated) to Qonto and Revolut (N26 is already linked to my Personnal...) Importing transaction manually is boring (yes I am lazy... ) Among the 10k+ financial institution, c…

    Hi - in process of recording historical transactions (from 13-24 months ago) into Wave, i.e., into Checking Account. Is there a way to see a running total of the cash balance in our checking account? This would make it easier to reconcile bank statements as well. In Accounting/Transactions I see a list of all the historical transactions, but do n…

  • Hi guys. I have recently connected my bank account to my wave dashboard, and all my transactions are importing well, which is an awesome feature thanks wave, my only challenge is that when a client pays directly into my account and I have to record a payment for their invoice it results in double accounting and overstates my income. Is there…

I have read through threads in this forum and tried all the suggestions (trying other supported file formats, saving a copy of the csv in Google sheets to clean the …

  • Hi I've just started using Wave and have successfully uploaded my normal bank transactions. Howerver, my report from Paypal doesn't have separate deposit and withdrawla columns. It just uses one column with deposits being positive and withdrawals being negative. What is the easiest way to upload this?
