Morning

Does anyone know if there is a SA bank that offers a solution which allows one to automate the periodic download of a banking statement with all the relevant transaction data (date, amount, reference, etc).

You can automate yourself with curl and if your bank does not require two factor authentication..

Nope.

Best they can do is drop intermediate OFX files (15min / 1 hour etc) + EOD file for reconciliation into an SFTP server for you.

(This costs money.)

An alternate solution would be to use something like UiPath or RoboTask to download the file from the OnlineBanking Site (create a separate Online Banking account with read only access).

FNB Mails it to me monthly, you can use the Gmail api to download the attachment.

(that's if you have Gmail).

I once used it way back when I was on crystal web to get my usage from the mail body and graph it in an excel sheet.

This would pretty much meet all my needs. Any ideas as to the costs (ballpark) involved and which of the big banks provide this service?

Id be surprise if anyone at "Business Banking" would have a clue what this is.....
