Many banks leverage MX for transaction cleansing and categorization. Hurdlr lets you build directly on top of your MX integration.

1. How it works

Through Hurdlr's MX integration, your user's transactions are pushed into Hurdlr immediately after MX has cleansed them. All of those transactions are then run through Hurdlr's proprietary algorithms, which leverage the user's business type, accountant best practices, and the behavior of similar businesses within the Hurdlr app's 700k+ users.

That data can then be instantly leveraged throughout Hurdlr's APIs, which include expense categorization, tax categorization, financial reporting, tax estimates, tax reporting, tax filing, and many other features.

You can also quickly and easily embed Hurdlr's white-labelled UI into your product, which automatically leverages the data from your MX integration.

2. Pushing transactions into the Hurdlr API

Once you have received your cleansed transactions from MX, you can simply POST those transactions into the Hurdlr API:

curl \
  --request POST \
  --url \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer ${access_token}' \
  --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --data '{
    "transactions": [
        "apiTransactionId": "1123144594",
        "date": "2020-08-27 00:00:00.000",
        "amount": 500.39,
        "description": "United Airlines",
        "mxCategoryName": "Air Travel",
        "apiAccountId": "459043850",
        "apiAccountNo": "5435",
        "apiAccountName": "Citi Premier® Card",
        "apiAccountType": "CREDIT",
        "apiInstitutionId": "Citi"

On each transaction, you can provide the following attributes:





Id of the transaction record in your DB

Any string


Date that the transaction was incurred



Total value of the transaction; deposits should be positive and withdrawals should be negative

Numeric, with 2 decimal places


Transaction description from MX

Any string

Any string


Id of the transaction's bank account in your DB

Any string


Mask of the user's bank account, often the last 4 digits of the account number (used in reporting)
