Metro Bank is making its presence known in the digital banking sector with the launch of a developer portal for FCA-registered third-parties wishing to build services on top of its APIs.
Using Google Apigee’s Edge API management platform, the portal provides developers a frictionless way to integrate with the bank, by giving access to the banks PSD2 API documentation, sample customer data, and sandbox.
Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank says: “PSD2 has the power to shake up UK banking and inject more competition and choice into the market. By working with market-leading Apigee API management, our developer portal will provide third parties with the building blocks they need to develop even more products and services to help make customers’ lives easier.”
Denis Dorval, Google’s Head of Apigee for EMEA, adds: “We see the changing preferences for how consumers want to interact with their banks as an opportunity for the banking industry to reach a whole new generation of customer and build a long-lasting, dynamic relationship with them.”
