If you don't want to connect your bank or credit card to Wave, or if your bank isn't among the 10,000 financial institutions that Wave supports, uploading your statements is a great way to avoid the hassles of manual entry. 

If you are uploading a statement into a payment account that already exists in Wave, just follow the instructions below. If not, you need to do a quick setup step first. 

Download your statement from your bank

First, go to your online banking site and download a statement to your computer. Wave can accept the following structured file types:

  • Microsoft Money (.OFX)
  • QuickBooks (.QBO)
  • Quicken (.QFX)
  • Simply Accounting (.ASO)

If none of these file types are available from your online banking site, Wave also allows you to support Comma-Separated Variable (.CSV) files. This is a more complex option, so please try to use one of the four file formats listed above.
