I noticed on a lot of movies people make it look real easy to do online banking and money transfers with laptops when they're doing weapons deals with the bad guys.
I was wondering, how easy is it to do online banking on Linux? When I was on Windows I had MS Money and I had it set up to download my bank statements and I was also able to transfer money between my checking and savings account.
My question is, is there software for Linux that I can do online banking like account transfers and is it possible to transfer money between accounts that are heald at differant banks?
And would any one know why only Money and Quicken are able to do online banking?
I do lots of online banking with Linux, but it's all done through the web browser, mozilla or firefox. The bank's web site actually provides all the functionality I need: transfers, bill payments, history download, etc. as simple web enabled transactions.
Your ability to do online banking is a lot more dependent on what services your bank offers/supports rather than on Linux itself. Additionally, it depends on how you are defining "online banking" - do you mean electronic bill payments, do you mean simply viewing your account information, do you mean applying for a loan, etc.
I'd suggest just giving your bank a call and asking them:
1. What online banking services do you offer?
2. What are the hardware and software requirements that are necessary?
If you are dissatisfied with the responses you receive you can check other banks in town to see if they offer better services. -- J.W.
My bank provides pretty much all the standard online banking you would expect from most banks now a days. The one thing I'm most interested in is the ability to transfer money from 2 accounts at differant banks. I want to be able to transfer money from my checking account at one bank to my savings at another bank. And I want to do it all from my laptop. I hate having to call real people at the banks to do it and giving my banking information to a person over the phone. I'd prefer to do every thing through a computer with a secure encrypted connection.
