“Open Banking” comes as a result of Directive (EU) 2366/2015 /PSD2/. It enables personal and business customers to share their data securely with banks and Third Party Providers, which perform the payment initiation services, account information provision services and confirmation of funds services. The data is shared via dedicated Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
Third Party Provider ("TPP") API Portals
First Investment Bank, as part of the PSD 2 efforts provides:
- A testing facility based on "Berlin Group" and BISTRA standards and available for authorised Third Party Providers to test API access from March, 14th 2019 on the following address: https://psd2dev.fibank.bg/fibank-sb/psd2/
- A production facility based on "Berlin Group" and BISTRA standards enabling authorised Third Party Providers to provide PSD2 services from June, 14th 2019 on the following address: https://psd2dev.fibank.bg/fibank/psd2/
