How often should my transactions update?

Automatic bank transaction imports are part of Wave’s Pro Plan. Learn more about Wave’s plans or how to subscribe.


Wave works with Plaid, a specialist provider of secure bank data connections to automatically import transactions. Learn more about how bank connections work in Understanding bank connections.

Transactions posted to your bank account don’t import to Wave instantly. While it normally tales 1-2 days, depending on your bank, there may be a longer interval between transaction imports. It can sometimes take up to 7 days for transactions to import.

Transactions import automatically and it’s not possible to initiate a manual refresh. If your transactions have not imported in over 7 days there may be a technical issue that needs to be resolved by Plaid. Learn more in Why is my bank unable to import transactions?

If you want your transactions in Wave sooner than they import, you can turn off imports for the account under Banking Connected accounts and upload a statement or use Wave Connect.
