The ability to import/sync Amazon Prime purchases would be very helpful and a time saver. Quicken, please partner with Amazon so to have the abillity for us users to import Amazon transactions.

    Hello @ericralba,

    Thanks for reaching out to the Quicken Community.

    In order for a financial institution to support downloads to Quicken and to be added to our bank list, the request to be added would need to be made and submitted by the financial institution to our service providers. If you want Quicken to be supported, you will need to contact your financial institution directly and tell them you'd like to download your accounts into Quicken.

    I hope this information serves to be useful to you! Thank you.

    What would you do with the information downloaded? You already get the purchase amount from the credit card that is charged. It seems that the only thing downloaded would be the item information which would imply inventory, but Quicken doesn't handle inventory.

    So, back to my original question, what advantage would the download provide?

    Amazon does have this trait of totaling your entire order when the order is placed, but actually creating the cc transactions as individual shipments are made. Total order = $100 becomes three charges of $20, 30, and 50. Have to go back to Amazon to see what was in each shipment/charge.

    That said, I don't think it is appropriate for an Amazon to Quicken linkage any more than any retailer-to-Quicken link would make sense. I see it as an excess of wanting Quicken to do it all, be a magical black box.

    A related request that has come up in the past is, especially for people who have an Amazon-sponsored credit card, to have a brief descriotion of the purchase included in the downloaded Memo. Apparently this was done in the past but not any more. This was discussed at length in this Idea post

    Another confusing aspect of Amazon purchases is that when you return an item, they usually apply the credit to your Amazon account and use it to reduce the charges for future purchases rather than issuing a credit to the original credit card. This makes it difficult to cancel the original charge and correctly categorize the future purchases.
