The European Payment Services Directive  (DSP2) requires payment service providers (PSP) to allow third-party service providers level 1 access to the accounts of consenting customers. The Directive proposes two solutions:

A dedicated interface or the use by third-party service providers of interfaces used for authentication and communication with payment service users of PSPs managing accounts.

After consultation with certain market players, FPE has decided not to deploy a dedicated interface and offers third parties wishing to use the interface used by its customers the option of attaching the header defined below to the access requests (API calls or web scraping) that they will be required to make on behalf of Nickel customer users.
