Access Bank Account Data Using Financial REST APIs

Online applications are becoming more and more a part of everyday lending. This process allows lenders and other financial institutions to access customers bank account data and verify account information quickly and easily, making the process that used to take a couple of days only take a few minutes. Because of the growing need to access bank account data quickly and conveniently, many financial institutions are turning to Representational State Transfer or REST APIs to quickly access account data.

 

How Financial RESTful APIs Work

Not only do customers and clients rely on security and privacy of account information and financial transactions, but institutions need to follow the protocols and regulations that control instant access to financial data and the safe transfer of financial data information. Since these functionalities can be difficult to build, most institutions will rely on REST APIs. A REST, or RESTful API, can take advantage of protocols already in place no matter what protocol is being used, making it easier to develop a system that offers the protection and required controls necessary to secure financial transactions.

The result is a unified authentification of financial institutions around the world, which will allow institutions and users to access all of their account information and make microtransactions, all while seeing real-time balance information.
