Link your bank account(s) with Billit via Ponto

 

There are different options to import your bank statements in Billit such as via KBC, Ponto, CodaBox or our own Billbank system. You can find an overview of all options on this page.

Thanks to the Ponto connection Billit will automatically check if your invoices have been paid and you can keep track of your professional account balances.

How do I import my bank transactions via Ponto?

Step 1: You first need to have a Ponto account and add the accounts you want to connect.

Don't have a Ponto account yet?

Go to the Ponto website. Click 'Get started' en follow the registration process. You'll need to fill in your company details, contact details and bank account numbers. During the process, you'll receive a verification mail. Make sure to check your spam folder if you can't find it. Unlike CodaBox Ponto doesn't have a one-time start-up fee, just a monthly subscription. You can find the pricings on the Ponto website.
