Metro Bank direct feeds
Get bank account transactions from Metro Bank sent into Xero every weekday. To apply, add your accounts in Xero, check your account types are eligible, and apply either through Metro Bank internet banking or by application form.
What you need to know
- We can set up direct feeds for these eligible account types
- Everyday (day-to-day) accounts
- Saving accounts
- Term deposit accounts
- Credit card accounts
- Foreign currency accounts
- There is a monthly fee
There is a £1.00 fee (excluding VAT) charged each month and for each account. We'll include this on your Xero subscription bill once your feeds are set up.
- You may need to import transactions manually for the period before direct feeds start
Direct feeds don't import historical account transactions, but you can manually import these transactions into your Xero organization.
- Your direct feed will start 2 working days after you set up your feed online or up to 4 working days after Metro Bank receives your application form. We'll contact you before your feed starts.
Add your bank account in Xero before you apply
Add your account number in Xero before you apply. Make sure you select Metro Bank (UK) - Direct Feed from the Find your bank search box.
Your account number in Xero must match the account number in your online banking. Your direct feed won't start if the account number doesn't match.
Once you've entered your account number in Xero, Select GBP - British Pound regardless of the currency type. Metro Bank converts the amounts to GBP (based on the current exchange rate) before importing the transactions.
