AIB opens APIs developer portal

Friday 23 November 2018 14:17 CET | News

Ireland’s AIB has announced the launch of its API developer portal that will allow trusted third parties to interface with its platform to offer services to customers.

At present there are two options – accounts and payments. The accounts endpoints will enable users to access information, balances and transactional history on customer accounts.

For payments, the endpoints will enable users to initiate a single immediate domestic payment from a customer’s account and comprises three elements. These are setup of the payment instruction; submission; and ability to retrieve a status of the payment.

On its portal, the bank offers a sandbox to let developers test their app before building in production.

In the UK, where AIB Group (UK) is trading as First Trust Bank in Northern Ireland, it has already been involved in the open banking craze. It is part of the CMA9 – the nine largest banks and building societies in the UK.
