You’ll need to set up a subscription in the new Banktivity (currently at version 8). Setting up a brand new subscription will automatically put you into a 30 day trial, but you will be required to enter a credit card (or if you downloaded from the Mac App Store or App Store you’ll need to choose a subscription tier via an in-app purchase). To verify you have a subscription set up go to File > Subscription > View My Subscription. If instead you see File > Subscription > Start My Subscription, then select that to start your subscription.
Once you subscription is setup (it is okay if you are on the 30 day trial) follow these steps:
- Go to File > Subscription > View My Subscription
- If you have a Direct Access credit it will appear on this screen. It will say something like, “Available: 30 days credit” in a button.
- Click the credit button (described in step 2)
- Follow on screen prompts
- When it completes, your renewal date will be extended by the number of credit days applied to your subscription.
