The account information APIs, which follow the oAuth2 framework, will enable your application to retrieve account information from a KBC customer’s online payment account only with their explicit and authorised consent.
The process should begin by your application obtaining an explicit consent for the account access from a customer and then requesting the customer to authorise the consent using their KBC online banking/mobile banking credentials. Once the consent has been authorised by the KBC customer, your application can request the information on the accounts based on the permissions given by the customer as part of the consent.
The account information APIs also enable your application to check the status of the consent authorisation.

KBC Ireland has provided the following endpoints, to allow the initiation and execution of a payment from the application.
These endpoints comply with the Account and Transaction API Specification of the Open Banking standards. Detailed documentation of our implementation is available after you have registered on our developer portal.
A general outline for an account information request can be seen below (source: Open Banking):
KBC Ireland will support both web redirection and mobile application redirection for consent authorisation. The TPP application on a mobile device will be able to deep link into the KBC Ireland mobile application. In the event the customer does not have the mobile application installed on their device, they can expect that the TPP application will automatically redirect the customer to KBC Ireland online banking website, using the web-redirect method.
