As more and more banks open their APIs before the September 14 deadline, Salt Edge has added another one hundred to the list of its connected open banking APIs in the EU, making it 400+ integrations.
Gaining more speed along the open banking trajectory, just in the last two weeks Salt Edge has added a hundred more APIs and after the big number of 300+ in August has already integrated with 400+ banks across Europe and beyond, including Bank of Ireland, Ulster, Permanent TSB in Ireland, and MONETA Money Bank, UniCredit in the Czech Republic.
A special focus was put on Italy with connections to Fineco, Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena, Intesa Sanpaolo, Credito Emiliano, Ubi Banca, Crédit Agricole, Banca IMI, Banca Fideuram, and many others, making a total of 100+ Italian APIs at the moment.
Integrating European open banking APIs still is not all roses, as the process is full of challenges due to different interface characteristics, implementation ways, and other issues, adding unnecessary friction. Salt Edge continues working towards its goal of connecting all the available open banking APIs and plans to expand its geography even further. Next banks in line to be integrated are ABN AMRO in the Netherlands, Sparkasse Bank, Volks-Raiffeisen Bank in Germany, UniCredit Group, Erste Group, and so on.
