The Details ⚙️

Ireland’s approach to PSD2 uses the open banking specification, a protocol we’re immensely familiar with and have experience running at scale. Our products are 100% API based, which means they are faster, safer and more reliable than alternative solutions like screen scraping. You can access banks in Ireland in the developer console and on the providers’ endpoint now.We’re open banking experts, so you can expect the following benefits from using our platform.
  • Faster — Data and payments are received in real-time.
  • Safer for you — Users authenticate directly with their bank, reducing the risk of fraud.
  • Safer for your customers — We provide superior security by encrypting data and not storing encryption keys. Customers can revoke access to their bank account at any time.
  • Reliable — Data is sent via direct bank channels in a machine-readable format.

No PSD2 licence?

No problem. You don’t need the TrueLuck of the Irish to become an agent of TrueLayer. This is an excellent, proven solution for those who want to get to market faster while they apply for their own licence or those who wish to become a long-term agent. Contact us to understand how you can start operating under our licence.
