What is it?

With the Foreign Exchange (FX) Trade API we offer a REST service which enables you to request real-time rates and quotes from ABN AMRO for the world’s most traded currencies. You can retrieve the status and details of previously requested quotes and trade executions. The transacted amounts will settle over your ABN AMRO foreign currency accounts on the selected settlement date.

The FX Trade API is available for corporate customers who specifically want to execute a high number of foreign exchange transactions in small amounts. Companies that typically face these challenges are: travel agencies, tour operators and payment service providers.

Other companies that can benefit from using this API are firms that look for high levels of automation. This API allows for integration with ERP and in-house Treasury systems. Together with the Account Information and Payments Initiation APIs from ABN AMRO, customers are able to automate complete Payments and FX hedging workflows.
