Verification API basics

An overview of our Verification product.

The Verification API can be used to verify a user's bank account and return the associated bank details.

How it works

  1. The user gives consent for you to access their bank data.
  2. They are redirected to their bank to authenticate, then sent back to your app.
  3. To request verification, send the user's name to the Verification API.
  4. We compare the identity data to the account holder's name for all the connected account(s) the user has given consent for.
  5. We return the result of the comparison along with its match_score.


We offer the Verification API in the UK, Germany, and Spain in Public Beta. We can support more countries on demand. Contact customer support to find out more.
