Welcome to Santander Developers
This website is for software developers. Please visit the Santander website for access to Online Banking and more information on our products and services.
These APIs have been developed so that they meet the Open Banking Read/Write API specifications. To use these APIs you need to become an approved Account Information Service Provider (AISP) or Payment Initiation Service Provider (PISP). Find out more information on Open Banking APIs in our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Visit our Santander Labs portal to experiment using APIs and data sets based on realistic customer data here!
New Custom Data Types
For model class "OBExternalAccountIdentification4Code", we have introduced a custom data type for Account/SchemeName called "UK.Santander.SavingsRollNumber" to identify some Savings Accounts which do not have a numeric sort code account number format.
Examples of this type of Savings Account number would be: SAVINGR12345678 or SAVING123456789
NB. This only applied to our Account & Transactions API v3.1
We are happy to communicate we have introduced in our Santander|DEVELOPERS portal a set of new features for the Account Information and Payment Initiation Services and in addition the launch of the Confirmation of Funds API. This new release makes now available functionality under PSD2 Regulation through the UK’s Open Banking specifications:
- eIDAS certificates authentication
- All Corporate Customers payment accounts
- All Cahoot customers payment accounts
- Credit Card accounts for AISP Services
- Savings Accounts for AISP Services
- Chaps and International Payment Services are now live
- Our new Confirmation of Funds API for CBPII subscription
In parallel, all our User Interfaces have been updated to include the latest Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) changes to match this security requirement in our other customer channels, with the exception of Logon SCA changes – which have been deferred under direction from the FCA to Q1 2020.
