New services and features in v4

New services that will be available in PSD2 API version 4:

  • [Sweden and Baltics] Statement over 90 days is improved so that multiple accounts will be allowed in one consent authorized with SCA.
  • [Baltics] Payment multi-authorization – corporate customers can confirm payments that requires double acceptance.
  • [Baltics] Bulk payments – possible to initiate and authorize multiple payments with a single SCA.
  • Technical endpoints and pages to help in integration:
    • /v4/ping - new endpoint to get API server availability status. Should be used by TPPs in production phase to verify if server is accessible.
    • /v2/testMutualSSL - new endpoint used for onboarding to verify and/or troubleshoot secure connection with the bank.
    • /v2/testSignature - web page designed to help with request signing troubleshooting.

Other changes are described in documentation in chapter “Migration v3 to v4 guidelines” that was written to help developers make the migration to version 4 as smooth and easy as possible. There you will find all breaking changes and improvements listed in one place. Please follow up and assess the changes you need to do.

New sandbox in v4

The sandbox comes redesigned in v4. Our improved sandbox allows testing of more scenarios and better integration with the API, which overall improves the experience with API testing. The sandbox also has implemented common error cases. Test users and test values are described in the documentation.

TPP name and application name exposed to customers

Currently both TPP name and Application name are displayed to the end customer in different flows. However, some flows in Swedish API might support one name (TPP name or Application name) only. For best clarity, both TPP name and Application name will be displayed to the end customer in all flows and in all APIs in next update. Make sure that TPP name and Application name are clear and readable for a customer. Changes in TPP name can be made by contacting us. Changes in Application name can be made in the developer portal. For Baltics, Application name change has to be requested by contacting us after the name has been updated in developer portal. In Sweden, updating in developer portal is enough. Please be informed that long TPP name can be shortened in labels on devices for authentication/authorization due to technical device limitations.

Important information regarding planned downtime

Please be informed that PSD2 API will have planned downtime for 3h on the 24th of October between 00:30-03:30 CET. During planned downtime SEPA instant payments and all cross-border payments will not work.

Take care,
