Getting started in 5 steps
It's easy to start testing our APIs and integrate them in your own application. Follow the steps below and you'll be up and running quickly.
1. Sign up to start exploring our APIs
Sign up now to create an account and get started. It will take just a few seconds and it’s free.
After signing up, please check your e-mail and follow the instructions to log in. If you don't receive an e-mail within a few minutes, make sure it hasn't been sent to your spam folder.
Please feel free to visit the “PSD2 APIs” page to browse our current range of APIs. Here you'll find detailed API descriptions, documentation and Technical Guidelines.
2. Register an app
Before you can send a request to our APIs, you need to register your app. Once your app has been created, a Client ID will be generated and this Client ID is required to access the Sandbox APIs.
The Client ID is the unique identifier for each of your registered apps and must be submitted with all API calls.
3. Implement our APIs
When a Client ID has been obtained, you must then subscribe to the APIs you want to implement. When you've subscribed, you will recieve notifications regarding any updates we make to them.
Once you reach this stage, you are now ready to start using our APIs in your new app!
Please note that whilst exploring our APIs, you'll also find code examples in different programming languages to help you get up and running.
For implementation help, please read the Technical Guidelines.
4. Test and verify
In order to ensure that your app is well tested before going live, it is crucial to test the integration with our APIs in the Sandbox.
We are delivering a complete Postman environment to help you automate the tests.
If you don't use Postman, it is possible to use other testing tools. The Postman files will still be there if you need to use them along the way.
5. Go Live prerequisites
Before you go live, there are some important steps you must have completed in order to be able to access PSD2 API Live Data.
