Important: Kontist is not a bank as such but a banking app that offers a bank account with special features for freelancers.
The company providing banking services for Kontist is Solarisbank.
This is the reason why you need to connect your bank account via a platform operated by Solarisbank.
Take the following steps to connect your Kontist account to the Airbank App.
First, please go to the "Connect new bank" button in the upper right-hand corner of the dashboard & click on it.
Type in "Kontist" (in the search field - see screenshot below).
Now, click on "Solaris":
The following loading message will appear.
After a few seconds, you should be redirected to the log-in page of Solarisbank.
At this stage, there are 3 possible scenarios.
Please go to the relevant section of this article based on your my.Solarisbank setup.
1. If you don't yet have a my.Solarisbank account yet
If you are not sure whether you have a my.Solarisbank account or not, follow the stepts described in this part of the article.
Otherwise you can scroll down to the next step below.
