How will it look like on my interface?

You will find all of your account in the Accounts section of your interface. Both your Qonto and external accounts will be divided in 4 categories, ordered by the most used to less used:

1st category: Current accounts (cashflow)

2nd category: Savings accounts

3rd category: Wealth accounts (long term financial investments)

4th category: Other accounts, commonly used when the type of account doesn’t fit in any of the categories above.

The logos of your external bank/PSP will appear in your list of accounts to ease your navigation on your interface. They will also appear in the transactions list so you can identify quickly which transaction was made with which of your account.

You can filter and personalize your view by selecting your accounts from the Overview section, click on All accounts, select the ones you want and press Apply.

You will have access to the history of your external transactions for the past 3 months or more, depending on your bank.

Do I need to renew the sync at some point?

Yes, for safety reasons, you will have to renew your connection every 6 months. You will receive a notification directly on the Qonto app with a link to click on, which will launch a flow to renew your consent.

If the connection is interrupted, the external data remains visible for a few months but the exact delay depends on the external bank/PSP, not on Qonto.

However, if you manually disconnect your external account from Qonto, attached receipts to the external transactions will be lost. It will not be possible to recover them.
