Initiate payments and retrieve information on the status of the transaction. You need a PSD2 license to use this service.
The Payment Initiation API enables you to initiate single or batch payments from an ABN AMRO payment account to another account. You can retrieve the status of a previously initiated transaction to keep track.
A payment can only be accessed with the ABN AMRO account holders permission.
Important: A PSD2 licence is required to use this API. To access ABN AMRO accounts as a third party service provider, you must have a PSD2 license from a local competent authority, and a PSD2 QWAC EIDAS SSL certificate.
In the Netherlands, the local competent authority is De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB). If you require access to accounts in other countries, you also need a license in those countries.

A number of changes will take place in the area of payment services. These changes relate to the European Payment Services Directive (PSD2). One of the main objectives of PSD2 is to boost competition and innovation in the area of payment services.
The most significant change for ABN AMRO customers is that they will be able to give licensed third parties access to their current accounts. For the customer, this will enhance and create new experiences.
Alongside banks, other companies and organisations will be able to access account information and initiate payment services. Customer permission is required.
Do your customers want to initiate payments from your application or do they want to use one bank application for several banks? The Payment Initiation (PSD2) is the API you need to build an application or website to solve issues like these for your customers.
Use this API to:
- Send in payment instructions directly from your application or website
- Create remarkable client experiences
- Reduce manual steps needed for payment processes
