I have been through all of this, and have deleted, and reconnected my account several times (at least 5). The message is always first that the connection was successful, and then "something went wrong 9999" The HSBC banking website shows that the authorisation was granted successfully
The last time it worked was 6 days ago, when I then got a message from support to say it was fixed, and indeed it did refresh for one day, and has been down again ever since.
I move from Sage because this started happening with them after Open Banking was introduced, and now since the move to Open Banking on QB the same issue. At this time more than ever, we need stability in the systems we use
