Hi,
I just got the new apple credit card. It says I can download .qfx files, but from my ipad or iphone. My moneydance is on my mac.
Not sure how to make this work. Can you help or do I need to contact apple?

    Eassy peasy. Airdrop it from the phone to your mac (or export it to iCloud) which are both options that are presented when you ask it to export transactions.

    Or if there's a way to log into your account on your Mac, you could probably just download and save it directly from there. (I don't know if that's possible for Apple Cards, but it is for pretty much every other bank.) I'm not sure why one would only be able to download QFX files on a mobile device, they would have very limited use there.

    Ethan,

    The AppleCard is linked to the Wallet app on iOS. While you can do some things through a web browser on the Mac, the only export function there appears to be a PDF. It’s odd, but Apple occasionally adds more functionality. Now if the MoneyDance iOS app could import transactions, you could probably link the share sheet from Wallet’s export function somehow.

    Thanks for the clarification Ken. That's a very strange decision on their part. QFX files aren't useful for much on mobile devices. Or most files for that matter, since most mobile apps aren't really meant to use or store files in the same way one is used to on desktop systems. In any case, hopefully they'll add that option. That would be much easier to implement then us rewriting the entire mobile app to be able to do things like import. (While acknowledging that we know a more fully functional mobile app is a popular request.)

    I finally got a statement and was able to airdrop the qfx file from my phone to my Mac. Now if they would only allow us to download transactions daily instead of once monthly.

    I'm glad to hear that it seems to have been sorted out, although with a less than ideal frequency. Most banks seem to let you download those files whenever you want, for almost any date range. I can't speak for why Apple (or whoever manages their cards) do what they do.
