Easier payment transfers for your company

The bank connection authorisation form is a power of attorney through which a company or entity can authorise the administrator to take care of machine-readable payment transfers on the company’s behalf through the Web Services channel. The administrator can be an accounting firm or software provider, for instance.

We aim to process your authorisation as soon as possible or by the requested date, however, this will be at the earliest within one week from receiving the authorisation provided that all the required information is up to date. You will receive a confirmation when the authorisation has been processed.


Mandating a service provider through OP Corporate Banking APIs

A company or institution can also authorise their service provider to manage the company or institution’s machine-readable payment transfers through OP Corporate Banking APIs. The service provider can be an accounting firm or software supplier, for instance. The service provider mandate is given when concluding a new API agreement on the OP API Admin pages, and the mandate can be given to a service provider registered on the OP API Admin pages.

You can enhance your company’s operations and easily build a real-time connection to your bank by using OP Corporate Banking APIs. The interfaces can be used to fully automate both payment transfers and transaction queries, thereby speeding up your company’s processes related to payments and monitoring of accounts receivable. OP Corporate Banking APIs can also be easily integrated for purposes beyond financial management.
