QuickBooks Online
“Express Web Connect” is the automated login process your accounting software uses to retrieve your Commercial Online Banking account transaction information. It is known by various names based on the accounting program being used.

  • “Express Web Connect” (EWC) > Quicken Windows
  • “Quicken Connect” > Quicken Mac
  • “Automatic Update” > QuickBooks Online

Express Web Connect automates the Commercial Online Banking login process on your behalf and retrieves account transaction information. During aggregation, Quicken or QuickBooks Online logs in to Commercial Online Banking on your behalf. Generally, this happens once a day.

If you’re using QuickBooks Online, Express Web Connect will update your transactions automatically. QuickBooks Desktop doesn’t support Express Web Connect.
