FinCompare connects ING via API to enable faster loans for SME

Thursday 8 December 2022 15:23 CET | News

Germany-based corporate financing platform FinCompare has announced connecting the direct bank ING Germany via an interface. 

This allows SMEs to exchange documents and data for the loan conclusion and make credit decisions faster (within 15 minutes). Thanks to the API connection between the FinCompare platform and ING, loan application processes can be largely automated up to a financing amount of EUR 750,000 and a maximum term of five years.

How the procedure works

If a company decides to take out a loan from ING, FinCompare sends the application to the bank via the API. Within a few minutes, FinCompare and the SME customer will receive an answer from ING as to whether the loan approval can be made. In this case, the application will be processed further and the necessary data will also be exchanged via the API until the financing has been successfully completed.

The aim is to use technology to help SMEs obtain liquidity more quickly. At FinCompare, SMEs have access to over 250 providers and thus a broad comparison of financing solutions, from bank loans to leasing and factoring to purchase and warehouse financing.
