General questions

What is Open Banking?
Open Banking enables Account Service Providers (known as ASPSPs) including banks and building societies, to allow their personal and small business customers to share their account data securely with third party providers (TPPs). This enables those third parties to provide customers with services related to account information such as product comparison or payment initiation using the account and product information available to them. You will need to be an approved TPP to use these API's.
Third Party Providers are organisations that use APIs developed to Open Banking Standards to access customer's accounts, in order to provide account information services and/or to initiate payments. TPPs are Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISPs) and/or Account Information Service Providers (AISPs) and/or Card Based Payment Instrument Issuers (CBPII).
What is an API?
