I see several versions of Peoples Bank ... but do not see support for:

The Peoples Bank based in Biloxi, Mississippi. This bank has a number of branches in South Mississippi, including Keesler Air Force Base. https://www.thepeoples.com/locations.htm

I would appreciate your consideration of accepting downloads from this bank. It is currently supported by Mint.com and by Quicken. I have converted accounts to Moneydance 2017 on Windows 7 and would like to include The Peoples Bank account in my downloads.

Thanks.

    Hi James,

    Moneydance supports automatic downloads via Direct Connect. You can view a list of financial institutions that support this feature here - http://infinitekind.com/fi Unfortunately it appears your bank does not support Direct Connect access.

    There is another connection type used by Quicken and some other personal finance software, called Web Connect. Moneydance only supports automatic downloads via Direct Connect - This is for security, and you can read more about why we only support this connection type in our blog and also in this article. By only using Direct Connect, we can guarantee that your username, password and financial data only ever exists with your bank or on your own personal computer, and at no point are your details stored on another server.

    Without Direct Connect, you are still able to import your data into the program. The best way to get your files into Moneydance is to use a web browser to download them from your bank's web site. You can download into QFX, OFX or OFC files (aka Quicken or MS Money files), any of which will import cleanly into Moneydance.

    Jenny,

    Thanks for the detailed response. I checked my old Quicken data file and the connection to The Peoples Bank (Biloxi, Mississippi) is by Express Web Connect.

    I certainly agree with your comments about the security of Direct Connect as a preferred download method. Fortunately, this is a fairly limited transaction account so manual entry or an exported file will work for me.

    I appreciate your comments.

    James
