Moneydance contains support for extensions or plugins. These extensions have the ability to add new features and services that weren't originally built-in to Moneydance. Each extension is available in a self-contained file. Moneydance can add extensions from files downloaded from this page or using the built-in extension manager, which can be accessed by going to Extensions -> Manage Extensions (note: the extension manager is not allowed in the Mac App Store version of Moneydance). From there, you can view your installed extensions and install new ones and remove unwanted ones.

If you have purchased Moneydance through the Mac App Store, you can install extensions with the following instructions:

1) Go to the Extensions page on our website
2) Click on "download" for the appropriate extension
3) Open Moneydance
4) Drag the downloaded file, which will have the extension ".mxt", onto the Moneydance program window
5) When the "Add Extension" window appears, click "Install Extension" 
6) The extension will now be available under the Extensions menu.

Every extension includes a digital signature that is verified each time the extension is loaded. Every extension must be audited and signed by The Infinite Kind before Moneydance will load it. Extensions with invalid or missing signatures will generate an error and will not be loaded unless the customer overrides the error.

You can find the list of currently available extensions here.
