I've encountered a bug / problem

We’re sorry to hear that. Please send us a message detailing the nature of the issue and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

What is the Investec Developer Portal?

The Investec Developer Portal is the platform to engage with us and our API products. It is the place to test our API products and bring solutions to life.

TPP, PSU, AISP and PISP – what do all these acronyms mean?

There are a lot of acronyms around Open Banking.

A Third Party Provider (TPP) for example can be a company or natural person that uses APIs to access clients’ accounts in order to provide account information and/or payment initiation services. A client or customer is called a PSU.

For more information around acronyms have a look at the Open Banking Glossary.

Where can I find more information around PSD2 and Open Banking?

Open Banking is an industry initiative to help third parties develop new banking products and services through the use of APIs.  

Are there any costs involved in using Investec APIs?

There are no costs involved when using our Payment Initiation and Account Information APIs. However, note that you will need to be enrolled with Open Banking. In the future we may consider partnerships with Premium APIs. We are open to new ideas and opportunities. Please feel free to get in touch with us.

How long will I have access to Investec client’s data once they give consent?

A TPP will have access to a clients’ account(s) based on the number of days authorised. This can be up to a maximum of 90 days. After the consent has expired, clients will need to re-authorise access to their accounts.

Can an Investec client remove their consent

A client will always be in charge of their data and the apps or websites they grant access. Clients will be able to remove / decline TPP access at any time.

How can I test the sandbox APIs?

In order to test our sandbox APIs you will need to be enrolled with Open Banking and then create an account on the Investec Developer Portal. Once you have created your account you will need to register an app and request access to our sandbox products. Once you have your client ID and secret you will be able to test against mock data.

How do I switch to Production?

Done testing and ready to go to Production? Please get in touch with us and send us your Open Banking JWKS URL and name of your app for verification. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
