HSBC has launched an Application Programming Interface (API) Developer Portal – develop.hsbc – which will support all its market facing APIs.
It will provide customers with direct access to a suite of tools with which they can integrate the bank’s API solutions into their own products, as well as make use of a secure testing environment.
Customers can now register to access the latest documentation and services for the bank’s Open Banking products, including our TPP Implementation Guides.
The portal enables customers and developers to easily find the right APIs for their business needs, access the technical documentation, and try out APIs in the test environment, enabling rapid integration into their own products.
The portal enables third party providers in the 15 markets
Initially, the portal will provide access to treasury payment and account information APIs, and a number of APIs for trade processing, custody holdings, bank guarantee status and global disbursements.
The portal also allows third party providers in the 15 markets where Open Banking Regulation has been implemented to access payment and account information APIs for retail, business and corporate banking.
HSBC will be regularly enhancing the portal with more API solutions over the coming months, and will continue to make enhancements to the customer and developer experience.
HSBC is also upgrading its Open Banking API Sandbox
Eventually, the portal will house all of the bank’s regulatory and non-regulatory APIs.
HSBC is also in the process of upgrading its Open Banking API Sandbox to extend its range of APIs and enhance the functionality it provides.
The new Sandbox will be available from early Q3 2021. In the meantime, the existing sandboxes remain available for use.
