Hello, I am using QUicken Deluxe and want to try something different. I cant get Money Dance to work. Do I have to purchase MoneyDance before I can link my bank accounts ? Is there a trial period first if it doesnt work for me ?

    MD is free to download and use. It will limit you to 100 transaction entries before it stops you entering new transactions. It will remain funny functional but prevent new txns after that. Once you buy a license you can enter it and carry on. If you delete the data set and start again, then you 100 clock starts again too. So you can play away for free for ages…..

    Try it out for yourself.

    The downloaded version of Moneydance is a full working version with the only limit being a maximum of 100 manually entered transactions, with no time limit. Imported files from other financial programs and your bank have no limit on imports, provided that you do not confirm them. If you decided to purchase you are sent a key by email that unlocks the 100-manual transaction limit. If after testing with this free trial version you purchase and change your mind see the 90 day money back guaranty at
    For the future Moneydance never sunsets the version it releases. So, you don’t have to upgrade. If you won’t to upgrade the next version is free (say 2017 to 2019) and from then on you get a 50% discount. All upgrades within a version are free.

    Make sure you are running this build of Moneydance

    For information on how to use Moneydance see

    Hope this helps.
