Can't download Coast Capital Savings accounts via Quicken Connect.

When I added my accounts, the only option was manual or Quicken Connect. An error came back after trying Quicken Connect saying the bank website was down. This has been the case since July 2019 apparently.

    Just to add to this since it appears to have gone stale, and, well, I'm having the same issue ...

    Quicken Delux ( Canada ) 2020 ... Version 5.13.3 ... Mac OS 10.15.1 ... Updated yesterday.

    This issue, I believe, is that Coast Capital has changed their web login method from asking for your 8 digit card number and PIN to making everyone setup an actual username / password to use ... not sure why they went this route, since its hard to find a good username, while card numbers are always unique ...

    below is what comes out of the 'copy to clipboard' option on the error screen, minus some stuff in the first section that shows personal info pertinent to me .. please feel free to email directly if needed for more secure deliver ...

    Note also that if I go into Options, I don't even have the option to upload Quicken file downloads ( ie. Web Connect ) ... its either Quicken Connect or 'Enter Transactions Manually' ...

    Thanks ...

    I am having trouble too with Coast Capital and Quicken. It does seem to stem from the login not adding up. Has this been resolved? Please advice!

    What exact error code are you getting, @Manique ?
    And what do you mean by "login not adding up"?
    Please provide more details just like I requested in my original reply.

    Most Canadian FIswill only permit downloading of transactions by Web-Connect and do not provide-Direct Connect capability. Direct Connect requires your login credentials and most Canadian FIs do not permit third party access to their accounts (this may be explicit in your terms and conditions).

    I use VanCity and have got use this issue and only use Web Connect, which involves your access through the website and manually downloading the individual QFX file (which can be imported into Quicken) for each account. This is a painless and secure procedure. Some Canadian banks have their own apps or processes, or US affiliates/branches and can offer direct connect through their US connection.

    I refer you to a previous thread here "One Step Update not working with PC Financial Canada" with an interesting posted answer from Quicken Tamara.

    This issue is not old and is an aggregation issue.
