What is an API?
The use of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) has created many opportunities for innovation in the financial industries. It enables the circulation of information between applications provided by payment services, banks, and industries that use technology to improve the world of finance (FinTech).
APIs have made significant contributions within the payment services. They allow payment services to access bank accounts, provide customer verification and accumulate data, making it easier to analyse information and open new accounts quickly, securely and simply. All this results in making customers’ lives simpler.
