Closing Points

Transactions that take place prior to this will not be imported by the feed but can be imported from a CSV file. To do this, log into your American Express online account and request an export of your transactions.

  • Inline with PSD2 regulations you will be asked to reconfirm your connection to American Express very 90 days. We’ll remind you when the time is due.

  • You can revoke access at any time by deleting your feed on QuickFile or by deleting the authorisation from the American Express app.

  • The feed will run once every 24 hours at around 4-6 am GMT. When the feed runs all booked transactions will be imported from the day previous.
