Introduction to Bank

Bank provides standardised and secure access to structured account and transaction data from 1,800+ financial institutions across Europe.

Leverage Open Banking data through a seamless integration of banking functionalities into your application, empowering your users to view their account balances, transaction history and more. Whether you are building a personal finance app, cash flow modeling or a risk analysis platform, the Bank product offers reliable methods for accessing checking and card accounts data.

How it works

After having the Powens API integrated, your end user will be able to connect its banks accounts.

When this is done, you are allowed to access all transactions from accounts for which the end user has given their consent.

Use Powens Console (from where you manage your apps and find your API credentials) to create a URL that is provided to the end user. When your user selects their URL, they go through a flow where they authenticate with their bank and connect to their bank accounts.
