Apologies if my answer wasn’t clear. It’s certainly not our intention to hide details with the intention for you to spend money. I will run through our available feeds and which ones require the Yodlee subscription, and which ones do not.
In short - Yodlee is a separate subscription from any other subscriptions and is optional and not required to use your QuickFile account. It does come with the added benefit of providing a bank feed, which in some cases is automated.
This depends. We offer 5 types of bank feeds, so depending on what you use, depends if they will stop or not.
QuickFile Barclays Feed: This is the automated Barclays feed which was available to older accounts (although no longer available for new accounts). This does not require a subscription. If you have this in place already, not purchasing the Yodlee subscription will not prevent this from running.
Chrome plugin: This is the downloadable plug in for the Google Chrome browser. This is a manual import process, but does not require a Yodlee subscription.
PayPal Feed: This is the built in feed that runs within your account. This does not require the Yodlee subscription.
Stripe Feed: This is the new built in feed for Stripe accounts that runs within your account. This does not require the Yodlee Subscription.
Yodlee Feeds: If you have a bank feed for any other bank or service, excluding those listed above, that is automated or can be run by selecting “Manually Refresh Feed” within your bank statement view on QuickFile, this is powered by Yodlee and does require the subscription. If you do not already have this subscription on your account but do have bank feeds, then it’s likely you’re using on the above free feeds, and not Yodlee.
I hope that helps, but please let me know if you have any further questions.
