Confirmation of Funds

The API endpoints described here allow a Card Based Payment Instrument Issuer ('CBPII') to:

  • Register an intent to confirm funds by creating a "funds confirmation consent" resource with an ASPSP, for agreement between the PSU and ASPSP. This consent is a long lived consent, and contains the length of time (expiration date) the customer (PSU) would like to provide to the CBPII; and
  • Subsequently make a request to confirm funds are available.
  • Funds can only be confirmed against the currency of the account.

This API is developed according to the Open Banking Read/Write API Specifications and fulfils PSD2 regulation, see

Who can have access to the API?

Access to the Confirmation of Funds API is limited to approved/authorised CBPIIs, using eIDAS certificates. Approval and authorisation is managed by the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK (FCA, see and other relevant competent authorities across the EU. Approved/Authorised organisations should then be enrolled to use the Open Banking Directory. By successfully accomplishing these prerequisites, a CBPII will obtain the necessary digital identities and certificates which enable organisations to securely connect and communicate via the Open Banking Security Profile (OIDC) in a standard manner and to best protect all parties within the Open Banking ecosystem.
