Xero Bank Feeds

The Xero Bank Feeds API was built to help Xero customers quickly and easily reconcile transactions in their account.

Once a customer signs-up to a Bank Feed and the transactions are in Xero, it makes it easier to keep track of the money coming in and going out of their business as well as removing the manual process of uploading CSV files.

Bank statements in Xero underpins a great account reconciliation experience, and is its most loved feature.

Currently over 100 banks worldwide have Bank Feeds and they are the most popular and widely used feature within Xero. You can find out more about this Xero feature on the Xero website.
