Functional limitations :

The limitations of this PSD2 API in the version 1.0 are as follows:

  • Apply only to authorized and eligible retail payment accounts that are accessible online (cf. PSD2 Directive text) ;
  • Use the authentication with redirect mode only (Strong Customer Authentication required and handled by the bank), which IS NOT an obstacle according to French national competent authority ;
  • Manage only single payment initiation requests in euro currency either in CORE SCT or IP ;
  • The methods POST/paymentRequest and GET/paymentRequest are the only ones available (PUT/paymentRequest method will be available later) ;
  • No cancellations of this initiation operation is possible for the time being. 


From test to live data :

In order to access to live data, you will need to request for a GO Live thru the 89C3 API portal after testing your app using Try-it and Sandbox environments as described below :
