Chase - Direct Connect Discontinued Oct 2022

Updated 10th October 2022

Unfortunately, Chase has discontinued their use of OFX Direct Connect, which is required to download your transactions automatically into Moneydance for free. It would appear Chase hasn't informed their customers of this change, as we've received many support requests from Chase customers in the last few days.

We've since been advised that as of October 6th 2022, Chase no longer supports Direct Connect/OFX, including 3rd-party bill pay.

Without Direct Connect, you are still able to easily import your data into the program for free. You can use a web browser to download files from your bank's website. We recommend you download using the QFX file format, which you can import into Moneydance using File > Import. The steps for manually importing your data are outlined in this article.

Alternatively, if you're using Moneydance 2022, you can subscribe to Moneydance+. This is the new (optional) subscription service that allows you to download transactions from your banks using the Plaid aggregator. You can read more about Moneydance+ in this blog post. For more details, please refer to this article of the Knowledge Base, as well. There is a 14-day free trial so you can fully test downloading from Chase before you're charged. If you have a Moneydance 2022 license key, the cost to use Moneydance+ is then $2/monthly. The steps for setting up this service are outlined here.

You will need to disable your current OFX connection prior to switching to Moneydance +. To remove the OFX connection, open Moneydance, select your account from the left Sidebar and choose Online > Set Up Online Banking. Select the "Disable" button to remove the connection and restart Moneydance.
