BNP Paribas gives authorised Payment Service Providers access to its PSD2 APIs


In the context of the 2nd European Payment Services Directive, PSD2 APIs from the following scope :
  • Hellobank in France
  • BNP Paribas Retail in France
  • BNP Paribas Corporate Investment Banking in Europe

are available in production and ready to be used by agreed Payment Services Providers with an eIDAS certificate.

A request for exemption of the fallback mechanism is ongoing towards ACPR on these scopes. If the exemption is not granted on September 14th, 2019, a fallback mechanism will be delivered on Retail scope in France, in order to allow Payment Services Providers to access PSD2 data without break in service. The corresponding documentation will be available on API Store end of July.

PSD2 APIs on BNP Paribas Corporate scope in France will be available on September 5th, 2019. Until the exemption is granted, a fallback mechanism will be available starting on September 14th, 2019. The corresponding documentation will be available on API Store end of July. These APIs are available in a test environment since March 2019.

Access to these APIs is reserved for Payment Services Providers that received authorization from their national competent authority in an EU Member State. 

The APIs can be accessed on the BNP Paribas API Store Portal at 

The publicly accessible online portable sets out the content and documentation of the API and enables you to contact BNP Paribas to get access to the APIs or ask questions. API Store shows all the PSD2 APIs for France (Retail and Corporate), Belgium (Corporate) and CIB Europe (Corporate). APIs offered by other Group entities are already locally available and will in time be listed in the API Store as well.
