    Postfinance - Import account statement .csv (Banana+ Advanced)


    The .csv format is different for each bank and is updated and changed regularly. On this page you will find the most recent extension for importing the Postfinance .csv format. This import extension allows you to import Postfinance transactions into Banana Accounting Plus. The extension can be installed from the Extensions menu > Manage Extensions.

    Requirements for use

    • Banana Accounting Plus with the Advanced Plan.
    • Postfinance also provides files with standard format ISO20022, which you can import with the Professional plan. To import files in this format you need to install the relevant import extension Swiss for ISO20022 Camt 052, 053, 054. If you do not find this format already available by default, you can request it from Postfinance.

    In some banks, the specific .csv format may offer better results. In any case, the Advanced plan guarantees a wider choice and maximum results, and also offers several other advanced functions that speed up and simplify accounting work considerably.

    Export your banking transactions in .csv format by accessing your online bank account.

    • Open the accounts section and select the account for which you want to export movements.
