Open Banking API
Specifications, Documentation, Reference Applications and Knowledge Base
Open Banking is an initiative designed to improve and enhance everyone’s banking experience. The core idea of Open Banking is that you can provide banks and other online providers with secure access to your account(s) so that you can manage your current accounts in a way that is better suited to your needs. If customers have multiple current accounts they will be able to see those accounts all in one place.
This API intends to provide an interface between:
- Account Servicing Payment Service Providers (ASPSP)
- Third Party (Payment Service) Providers (TPP)
TPP may act with different roles as described below:
- Account Information Service Provider (AISP) - AISPs provide consolidated information on one or more payment accounts held by the payment service user with either another payment service provider or with more than one payment service provider.
- Payment Initiation Service Provider (PISP) - PISP is a service to initiate a payment order at the request of the payment service user with respect to a payment account held at another payment service provider.
Al Salam Bank (Bahrain) provides the following two releases of Open Banking API for Third Party Poviders:
- AISP (Account Information Service Provider) and PISP (Payment Initiation Service Provider), supported since 2019 year.
- BOBF AISP (Account Information Service Provider) and BOBF PISP (Payment Initiation Service Provider), supported since 2021 year.
Please contact us via email for registration . After account registration, you will receive an email that contains an instruction in how to try Open Banking flow as a TPP.
