How do I download Apple Card transactions into quicken

When setting up my new Apple Card credit card account, I click on Apple card as my bank. The Apple Card account is automatically set up as a checking account, with no opportunity to set it up as a credit card account. When I try to set up online download, it takes me to Activate One Step Set Up, and asks me to name the account, and treats this name as a new name. Having given a new name, it asks starting balance, which is 0, it is a new card. The next page tells me to log into my Financial Institutions web page, which is card.apple.com. This takes me to the Apple Card website. From the Apple Card Website, it gives instructions on down loading a QFX file from my IPhone. The I iPhone then tells me I can send the QFX file by email, messenger, airdrop, etc but gives no instructions on how to communicate to my Windows laptop Quicken Premier 2020.
Any advice on how to set up and transfer transactions for my Apple Credit Card (Apple Card) into Quicken on my windows laptop?

    Once you have transferred the .QFX file from the phone to the computer, you can either do File->File Import->Web Connect file or just double click on the QFX in Windows Explorer to cause Quicken to start and import the QFX file.

    Hi @tybee01,

    So the problem is getting the file from your iphone to your Windows computer?  I am not an apple user, so this may naive, but couldn't you just email it to a gmail account on your windows computer?

    Hi @Tybee01,

    I believe that you may have setup you Apple credit card to connect to the Apple Bank link rather than to the Apple credit card link. See this Snip:


    If you have in fact set this Quicken account up using the other financial institution (Apple Bank) you need to deactivate the account and then set it up again from scratch using the credit card link.

    Let me know of you have any followups.

    Frank,

    Thank you for your reply. I am using apple card as the institution. I called apple card, and spent three hrs trying to find solutions. The only way to export the QFX file is through the Apple Wallet app on the phone. I export the QFX file, and end up in the share link, through which I can email, message, airdrop, carrier pigeon, etc the file. However, there are no choices, such as web connect, that communicates with quicken. I emailed the file to me, but there is no apparent way to get the file from an email into quicken. Quicken says use web connect from your bank. I have used web connect and know how that works with a normal bank. The missing link that I hope you can answer is getting the file from the iphone down load into Quicken.

    Another anomaly is that when I select Apple Card as the bank, I give the account a name, and it automatically sets up the account as a checking account, without giving me the choice of checking, savings, credit etc

    Thank you for any help or thoughts you may have.

    Thank You Frank!

    I emailed the file to me as an attachment, clicked on the attachment, opened as file type Quicken Windows. I then got the new account screen in Quicken, gave the account a name, and which allowed me to make it a credit card account. Hit enter and my Apple Card is now properly set up as a credit card account in Quicken. So, problem solved!

    Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it!

    Next time, it will just start Quicken (if not already open) and do the import without creating the account.

    Because Quicken does not recognize the Apple Card as a credit card (i.e.: Amex, Discover, Citi, Chase, etc.) it's impossible to set up the Apple card in Quicken. Quicken must make an addition to their line up of supported and popular institutions so that the Apple Card appears as of the the other 14,000+ supported institutions do. Until Quicken takes the time and effort to add Apple Card to their listing, Apple Card users will continue to have this set up problem.

    The only way to set up the Apple Card as a credit card account is to set it up as an "Offline" account. This means that each transaction must be hand entered into Quicken.

    Hi @Arbee3,

    Other Quicken users have been successful in downloading a .QFX file and importing transactions into Quicken through the "Quicken Connect" method.  See the messages previously posted in this thread (above).

    I just did this for four months of transactions. Of the 4 files, only 3 of 4 worked. This is ludicrous that they don't support the traditional update method in quicken. To the point that I may be down with Apple Card/Goldman Sachs.
