Once you add an account from the list of banks available, you will receive bank feeds to your Zoho Books account by default. The bank feeds are fetched every 24 hours into your account automatically for the banks that don’t require multi-factor authentication (MFA).
Warning: Bank feed availability is subject to the respective bank or service provider’s connectivity.
Some banks adopt multi-factor authentication for security purposes. If your bank adopts multi-factor authentication, you will have to refresh the feeds manually.
Notes: Unless the authentication is cleared the bank will not allow Zoho Books to fetch the feeds automatically.
To identify if the bank feed in your account has been activated or not, just check on the bank feed icon present next to the account name.
Login credentials of your bank account are necessary for the bank feeds to be fetched into your account. Some cases where it will be necessary to update your credentials,
- You have changed your login credentials.
- Requested for a new password from your bank.
To update credentials:
- Click the Settings icon on the top-right corner.
- Click Update Credentials.
Notes: When bank feeds are fetched, either automatically or manually, they will be fetched the previous day. If you fetch your bank feeds today, you will be able to see the transactions that happened yesterday.
