I'm confused. Isn't that the POINT of Plaid?

Do they more than replace Yodlee nowadays where it's a SDK for people to scrap bank accounts? Like say if your an accounting app and need to import bank statements.

For some of Plaid's partners it is the point. Others are only using Plaid for a simple bank account verification.

Here is the list Fintech companies which use Plaid as published in the Visa Acquisition presentation. Many of these (like non-lenders) have no legitimate use for all that info.
