Thanks for checking it out! 

I did not look much into it. I saw it and thought, oh.. it must be
something new. I wonder if the KMY devs have heard of it? 

Figured I would send it to you all.

Two statements that are worth noting about this proxy service:


Build on Plaid’s PSD2 platform to securely access clean, categorised
financial data. Whether you’re a fintech or a financial institution,
we’re here to help.

Well, they're on the hunt for businesses, not FLOSS devs/users.


Plaid doesn’t charge you for our services

When you connect your financial accounts to an app like Venmo or Digit,
the app pays us a fee to enable that connection. We don’t charge you
for connecting your accounts.

Information about the 'fee' can be found on

So KMyMoney would have to pay? No way!
