Harness the full potential of the European account information payments directive
The purpose of the account information service is to obtain aggregate information about one or more payment accounts, held by your customers. The technological heart of this ambitious European regulation is APIs (Application Programming Interfaces).
This gives customers an overview of their financial situation and enables them to easily analyze their activity and financial needs with the provider of their choice.
Advantages of the Accounts PSD2 API
Using the Accounts PSD2 API requires a license to provide account information services in the country. The service is deployed through Redsys, a company that has developed the BBVA API for the provision of the account information service.
The PSD2 provides a unique opportunity for accessing your customers’ payment account information and being able to use it as one more resource when creating services and products that suit exactly what they are looking for. Integrating this API into your ecosystem will make the process much simpler, more efficient and more intuitive.
