Firefox extension automates upload of bank data

The browser add-on also has a snapshot capability that captures screenshots of electronic receipts and confirmation pages. Members can send these images to their Wesabe account and attach them to the corresponding line-item transactions from their checking and credit card accounts.

The Wesabe Firefox extension, which requires Firefox 2.0 or higher, can be used for any bank that supports the download of OFX, OFX2, OFC, QFX or QIF files. The add-on can be downloaded [url=https://www.wesabe.com/accounts/upload]here[/url]. Setting up Wesabe accounts for banks that provide automatic data downloads, including American Express, Chase and USAA, only takes seconds, according to Marc Hedlund, co-founder and chief product officer of Wesabe.

Members need to enter their username and password. The extension auto-records a log-in and download, and then plays it back as frequently as the member wants updated data. The extension works equally as well for banks that don't provide automatic downloads -- members use the extension to "record" an actual download session from their bank web site, a process that typically takes between one and two minutes, Hedlund says.

The extension also gives members a quick upload option. Users who don't want to record scripts can use the add-on to transfer data to Wesabe any time they go to their bank site and download a supported file type. Wesabe recognizes the file download and asks if the data should be transferred to the member's account.

The other major feature in the Firefox add-on is a snapshot capability, which allows members to capture screenshots of electronic receipts and confirmation pages. The images can then be sent to a Wesabe account. By selecting the "edit" button found next to each transaction, members can access and attach these screenshots via a drop-down menu. They also have the option of browsing and attaching any file, such as a scanned receipt or document, to line-item transactions.
