Which data can be imported via Bitstamp API?

Your complete transaction history always serves as the basis for your tax report. Preferably, automatic API solutions are used to import your transactions. Our team is committed to implementing all API data provided by your exchange for you.

Using the following list, you can identify all products that are implemented:

(Inconsistencies between main- and subaccount trasnfers: Missing transfers from main to subaccount - subaccount transactions are already fully imported. Matching mergeable counterpart transactions have to be created manually in the mainaccount Integration)

In case of missing transactions, you can identify them in the history of your exchange and help our support team via ticket to include them in our import spectrum.

If an import of your transactions via API is not available on exchange side, you can also add these transactions manually or by migrating your CSV data into our Excel template.
