Personal finance manager Moneydance cannot import PayPal transactions directly. As a user you can still export QIF files from PayPal and import them, but that restricts you to US$, a maximum of 2 years, and seems like a cumbersome process anyway.

This extension provides a direct connection to PayPal and allows you to import your PayPal transactions in any currency and date range.


PayPal Importer displays an dialog for entering the connection details.


Integration: Import your PayPal transactions seamlessly from within the Moneydance application.
Usability: You can encrypt your data file and store your API password.
Communication Security: All network connections between the Moneydance application and PayPal are SSL/TLS encrypted.
Integrity: The extension is audited and signed with the official Moneydance key.
