The revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) requires banks to allow third party providers (TPPs) to access account and make payments on their customer’s behalf and with their consent.
This regulation ensures that banks put into place the necessary systems to securely and reliably share their services and data with registered TPP.
APIs are already widely used across the internet to share information and provide secure access to accounts and payment services.
iBanFirst’s open API can be used for both account information (AISP) and payment services (PISP).
Our API was certified and iBanFirst is exempted from any fallback mechanism in the context of PSD2.
Since our priority is to secure customer’s data and ensuring a smooth customer experience, as well as adhering to market standards, our PSD2 services are based on a common “redirect” method (defined in standards such as OAuth2.0).
Our PSD2 API are free to use for all registered AISPs and PISPs. If you are a registered TPP and wish to use our API, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our PSD2 API Sandbox is an open environment that allows to experiment, develop and test TPP’s application for the PSD2 services. It covers accounts information, payment initiation and secure customer authentication.
