Streamlining development

Streamline the development of your innovation with our payment-related API standards. They enable third parties to connect with API providers, such as banks, in a consistent way so solutions don’t have to be completely custom designed for each API provider. Our API standards are developed by representatives from across the payments industry, operating within an agreed framework.

On 1 March 2019 we published our first open standards, which anyone can view. To find out more see Available standards.

Joining our API Centre gives you more rights to contribute or use the API standards. To find out more see Using the standards.
