Users of the platform can access features such as:  

  • Browse and filter solutions tailored to their industry across 33 markets globally, including manufacturing, fintech, technology, ecommerce and more; 

  • Create a project space and conduct testing with their team in an upgraded simulator environment which allows them to write and test production-ready code;  

  • Explore new developer guides such as API technology documents and tutorials on the bank’s security protocols and authentication. 

The Open Banking Marketplace showcases previous use cases and client testimonials tailored to each API product. This provides insights into replicable solutions and real-world results. This information could be beneficial for stakeholders beyond the developer community.
