The European PSD2 payment directive provides for banks to open their payment services to third parties or TPPs (Third Party Providers). This changes the landscape of the banking sector by opening it up to these new actors who are able to access the payment account services of financial institutions.
BBVA provides TPPs with access to their clients’ accounts through these APIs so that they can provide the payment services provided for in the regulations. The consent of customers (companies and individuals) and their prior authentication by the bank are required in all cases and accounts must be accessible online.
These services that BBVA makes available to TPPs following approval of the PSD2 regulation are provided in a completely reliable way, are compliant with strict security protocols and require the customer’s unique and exclusive consent in all instances.
Access to account information and payment initiation will enable TPPs to develop value-added services based on BBVA APIs.
Regulatory APIs allow you to access the functions you need at all times in a secure environment.
Your customers will be able to view their payment accounts information globally without leaving your environment: list of accounts, balances, transactions (date, description and amount) and account holders. And you will be able to build a value proposition of your product that fits your circumstances at all times.
The Regulatory APIs solution provides you with everything you need to allow your customers to initiate payments on your solution easily and securely.
The European PSD2 regulation has marked a before and after in the open banking scenario. The APIs developed by BBVA to meet its requirements are the perfect instrument for any company that wants to go one step further implementing secure, reliable and efficient functionalities.
