Can someone tell me if there is a difference between a Direct Connection vs. Commercial Feed?

    @sebeach Lots of the old timers here had to set up a commercial feed direct from the credit card company (like Visa) since the banks would not let Expensify import the data. It was also the only option for lots of commercial cards.

    Traditionally, the Commercial card feed has been really reliable, but intensive to set up. Also, lots of banks tack on extra fees per month to send over the commercial card feed.

    The direct connection has become much better and more reliable over time. They've also been able to connect to many more financial institutions. If you have the option for direct connect, I would go with that option for sure.
