Give your accountant access to your account in a breeze!

Why should I give access to my accountant?

Providing your accountant with an access to your payment account is a great way to make his life easier and save a lot of time for yourself. ⏱

Once your accountant has access to Qonto, he/she becomes fully autonomous. That means they don't have to ask you for manual exports every once in a while : they can access and export all the information needed from Qonto (transactions, receipts, notes, VAT amounts, or labels).

Accountants using Qonto with at least one client report a significant amount of time saved, and their time is... your money! 💸

How can I invite my accountant?

Inviting your accountant just became easier than ever. To invite your accountant, head to the "teams" section of your app.

  1. Create a new invitation with the "accountant" role. All you have to fill in is a name and an email.
  2. Your accountant will receive an invitation email, including the details of everything they can do with their access, and a link to sign up
  3. To sign up, all your accountant needs to do is confirm their email, phone number, and define a strong password.

That's it: they're now IN ✌️

What if my accountant didn't respond to my first invitation?

Your accountant is a busy person, this happens. So we've added an option for you to invite your accountant again. Just click on their profile in the "Team" tab and click "Send invitation again".

We hope this simplified process is going to save you and your accountant a lot more time, so that you can focus on what matters most: running your company efficiently.

If you have any feedback about this (or anything else), please don't hesitate to reach out to support@qonto.eu - we're always listening.

Happy bookkeeping! 🤓

The Qonto team.

🔨 Qonto now works great on smaller screens!

Bonjour, Qontoers!

When browsing Qonto on the web with a small screen, your experience could get... sub-ideal, to say the least. 😕

The page didn't really adapt, and in some cases you had to zoom out or scroll sideways.

We heard you, and we fixed it! 🔧

Now, when space becomes limited, the main navigation moves from the side to the top your screen, to give more room to your content! Take a look:

History - 1200 - Size panel on.png

We hope you enjoy browsing your favorite banking site with this new layout! A few more tweaks, and we'll soon even make it possible for you to browse your favorite banking site on your iPad or Android tablet! 🙌

All the best,

The Qonto team

✊ Easier history & cards management for power users!

A growing demand from the largest organisations using Qonto has been to make your thousands of history lines, and your list of MasterCards more readable.

We've heard you, and developed 2 small features to make this easier for you.

Hide Qonto fees from your history!

The downside of our transparent pricing is that a separate "Qonto fee" transaction can appear in your history for every operation that's not included in your plan, which can crowd your transaction history very fast.

Now, you can just head to your user's personal settings, and untick the box "show Qonto fees in transaction history".

Artboard.png

Et voilà: your transaction history becomes instantly cleaner.

NB: This setting is limited to your web experience, and won't affect your transaction history on iOS or Android.

Quickly access the cards you need

In a large team, you have dozens of cards to manage, making it hard to change the spending limit of that one card your employee asked you to.

On the Web, we have now added quick filter buttons for the filters your are most likely to use, letting you quickly drill down to the card you need.

For example, clicking "Active cards" will hide all cards that are expired, or permanently blocked.

See for yourself:

We hope these minor changes make a small difference in your everyday Qonto experience: do keep the feedback coming (we're always listening at support@qonto.eu)!

🌱 Meet Qonto's new look

Hello spring!

Spring is often perceived as a time of transition, during which nature renews itself in splendour. Just like Mother Nature, we’ve done our own bit of renewal, to bring you an ever-improving experience for your bank account. ☀️

newdesign-release-illustration-2.png

As you might have seen by now, Qonto’s desktop App has gotten a fresh new look. Sections like History, Payments and Cards have changed a lot. Here’s an overview of what’s been updated recently:

  • 👉 A new dropdown menu to make it easier to find your organisation settings, your own profile and switch between your different accounts, all in one place.
  • 🧐 Updated font, font size and font colours for a better readability. We’ve also made buttons copy more explicit.
  • 🐣 Refreshed lists and tables to get straight to the point and remove distraction.
  • 🔬 Makeover of transactions details so the most important information stands out in the side panel when you click on a transaction. You can now find and edit what you need at a glance!
  • 💄 And many other small changes... making a big difference!

We hope this is to your liking as this is just the beginning! Our design team is busy improving your Qonto experience: more updates will follow soon. 💅

On our end, we'll keep on working on expanding support to more browsers.

🗂 Introducing Custom Labels

Bonjour Qontoers,

On this beautiful spring Tuesday 🌷, we're proud to announce custom labels: a brand new feature to help you better categorise your transactions, right inside Qonto! This is going to be a lot more handy to allocate expenses into the right buckets; and we are sure CFOs are going to love it to prepare their analytical P&L easily!

You can now apply labels from up to 3 custom lists to each of your transactions!

Qonto - Custom Labels.png

How do I set up my lists of labels?

Just head to your organisation's settings. From there, you will be able to name and define up to 3 lists, as well as an infinite number of labels per list.

Screenshot 2018-04-06 16.54.18.png

How do I label my transactions?

In the details of your transactions, you will see a new custom labels section in which you can assign a label for each list you have created.

2018-04-06 16_52_33.gif

Good to know

Custom labels are a great way to organize and classify your transactions and help you understand the financials of your business in a better way.

You will then be able to find your assigned labels for each transaction in your CSV (Extended) export, for easy analysis in the spreadsheet editor of your choice!

Custom labels can be set up on your desktop App and can be assigned to transactions through any of your Qonto Apps (iOS, Android and Web)

As usual, feel free to reach out at support@qonto.eu for feedback. We can't wait to hear from you about the way you use custom labels!

Happy Tagging! 🏷️

The Qonto team

P.S.: If you've used our previous "label" feature, fear not: all your transactions are still labelled. You will find your labels in the first list of custom labels.

🙌 Wire money in 18 currencies from the mobile Apps!

🎊 Transfers between Qonto accounts are instant... and FREE!

Hi folks!

We've noticed that a lot of Qonto users are doing business together (meaning that they pay services/products to each other). We are very flattered about that, but it also means that Qonto should thank you for that 😋.

Instant and free

  • The time when you had to wait for days to receive payments from your clients now belongs to the past! Transfers between 2 Qonto accounts are instant!
  • Icing on the cake: they are free and unlimited!

How does it work?

  • Business as usual: initiate a transfer from either the desktop or mobile Apps
  • As soon as the transfer is submitted, we automatically detect that the beneficiary account is a Qonto account
  • The transfer is instant and free of charge
  • You can spot the beneficiaries using Qonto from the beneficiary list on the panel to the right (do you see the flower by the IBAN, below?).

For security reasons, we have decided (for now) to show you that the beneficiary account is a Qonto one only AFTER you have made a first payment to her. We'll try to improve that part at a later stage!

This is the time to recommend Qonto around you!

Now is probably the best time to start recommending your suppliers/clients/friends to use Qonto 😇. Click here to start referring Qonto!

If you use the link above, don't forget that both of you will benefit from 1 month of subscription for free.

As usual, drop us a line at support@qonto.eu for feedback and comments. And thank you in advance for that (this is how we actually keep improving our product everyday)!

🔌 Qonto x Bankin' (and many accounting tools)!

Hello tinkerers,

Qonto is now available on Bankin'!

What does that mean?

That means that you can automatically import your Qonto transactions into Bankin' Pro for easy analysis. How does it sound? To us, it sounds AWESOME!

Why is that even better now?

The Bankin' API is used by tons of accounting softwares out there. If you use one of the following tools, you can now import your transactions automatically, by setting up your Qonto's "bank" account in one of them:

Here's how it works!

  1. Log in to Qonto, and head to your organization's settings.
  2. In the "integrations" tab, you can see your login, and generate a unique secret key.
  3. Inside Bankin' and their compatible apps, when prompted, you'll just need to use these credentials
  4. You're done!

Congrats to our friends over at Bankin' for the great work integrating our Open API! Let's say we are both ahead of PSD2 😇!

If you need help finding your secret key, check out our FAQ here. If you want to see the full list of compatible apps, click here. And for anything else, email us at support@qonto.eu!

Vamonos 💃🏼!

New VAT rates on Qonto plans

Following some technical changes in Qonto's corporate structure, please be aware that the VAT level applied to the Qonto plans (Essential, Standard and Premium), as well as for additional transfers and cards (virtual and physical) will be 20% from February 1st, 2018.

The prices before tax remain the same of course (e.g.€9 per month for the Essential plan, €29 per month for the Standard plan and €99 per month for the Premium plan).

The amounts including tax that you will be debited monthly from your accounts will therefore be €10.80 for the Essential plan, €34.80 for the Standard plan and €118.80 for the Premium plan.

No published changelogs yet.

Surely Qonto will start publishing changelogs very soon.

Check out our other public changelogs: Buffer, Mention, Respond by Buffer, JSFiddle, Olark, Droplr, Piwik Pro, Prott, Ustream, ViralSweep, StartupThreads, Userlike, Unixstickers, Survicate, Envoy, Gmelius, CodeTree
