Synchronization

The synchronization is divided into two parts. First, you can retrieve the existing transactions from your bank account automatically, and then, you can send payment orders to your bank.

Retrieve transactions

  1. Go to the banking section and scroll to the PostFinance account
  2. Click on "Retrieve transactions"
  3. Log in
  4. The transactions will be retrieved automatically


The transactions will now appear automatically in your banking section and you can perform the reconciliation. To find out how to perform transaction reconciliation, read here. It may happen that the login is successful, but there are no visible transactions. Read this article to find out the possible reasons for this: No transactions received.

Send payments

Enter payments as described in this article: Enter payments and send them to your bank with one click.


Please note that you can only send the payment orders after you have successfully received at least one transaction from your bank account. See the section "Retrieve transactions".

Depending on the bank and the e-banking contract, it may also be necessary to additionally view and confirm the payments in e-banking. Please contact your bank support for more information.

Security

bexio does not generally store any credentials (such as your contract number, passwords or tokens).

bexio does not ask you for your e-banking access information either in writing or by telephone. Please never provide your confidential information to third parties.
