Apple Card users are now able to export their transaction data in an OFX file format for use with third-party financial apps such as Quicken and Mint, as noted by Kyle Seth Gray. The option shows up when a monthly statement is available.

The exporting feature first rolled out last month, but only with CSV file support.


How to Export and Download Apple Card Transactions
  1. Open the Wallet app on your iPhone and tap on Apple Card.
  2. Tap on Card Balance.
  3. Under Statements, tap on the statement you want to export.
  4. Tap on Export Transactions and choose CSV or OFX.
Apple launched its credit card in the United States in August. Key features include color-coded spending summaries in the Wallet app, no fees beyond any applicable interest, and up to three percent cashback on purchases paid out daily.

To apply for an ?Apple Card?, simply open the Wallet app on an iPhone running iOS 12.4 or later, tap the plus button in the top-right corner, and follow the on-screen steps. The process takes just a few minutes, and if approved, your digital ?Apple Card? will be ready for purchases immediately. A physical titanium-based Apple Card is also available for use at retail stores that do not accept contactless payments.

This is great news! Exporting options is what was keeping me from fully utilizing my  Card because of my financial work flow with the Banktivity software. The CSV was a “clunky” first step for a solution but now with OFX support I’m excited to use my  Card as my main primary credit card.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Mint.com doesn't allow you to import transactions. You can manually add transactions one at a time to an existing account if they are missing however it doesn't allow you set up a "Blank" account that isn't linked to a financial institution.

Exactly, until I can import these to Mint directly I will pass on the Apple card

I still won’t be using my Apple Card much at all until downloads are supported in “One Step Update”. OFX just isn’t near good enough for me the change my mind. I have two dozen accounts in my Quicken file. Using OFX to update even one of them is one nuisance too far and I have plenty of other credit cards to turn to.

I agree, I do not know of a way to use Mint to import. If it does not come from connecting to the account they do not receive the data. Each month I have to rename the Apple Card payment to a credit card payment vs whatever it decides to categorize it this month.

Quicken 2020 Deluxe on Mac Ver 5.14.3 - Also doesn't work importing OFX file. Unable to read the selected Web Connect file. Please contact your financial institution.
But I am very happy they are at least trying to add this..

The current versions of Quicken (Windows or Mac) do not support OFX files. In fact, even Quicken's proprietary QFX format seems to be on the way out, in favor of "Web Connect."

Cant seem to import into Banktivity Vs 5.6.12. I've created a new account but get the following when trying to import the OFX File:

Received this from IGG Support:

Thank you for contacting IGG Software Support. Is this an OFX file downloaded from Apple Card? If so, we have already received reports of this issue. The problem is the OFX file is missing many tags required by the OFX specification. The OFX file will not be able to be imported until Apple (or Goldman Sachs) adds all tags properly, in accordance to the OFX specification. We have brought this to Apple's attention and they hope to have this corrected soon.

You have to use a third party converter ($) to make OFX into QFX and import into Quicken

Yes, unfortunately I found out OFX is supposed to but won’t import into either Quicken or Banktivity. Wtf? What’s the format good for then? Microsoft money? People with Quickbooks on Windows?
