When it comes to APIs, security is key

You will need to subscribe to the Authorisation API and Subscription API before integrating with any of our APIs to ensure your platform, connection and data are bank-secure.



Nedbank uses OAuth 2.0 (Open Authorisation), the industry-standard framework for authentication and authorisation. Allowing for simple, standardised flows for developers to leverage and enabling users to give third-party access to web resources without having to share passwords.

request actions

Nedbank APIM uses RESTful APIs, the most popular, tried and tested way of creating APIs. REST APIs offer the benefit of a standard set of request actions to ensure our APIs are easy to code and provide adaptable outputs.

encryption security

REST APIs use HTTP and support Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption – a standard that keeps internet connections private and checks that shared data is encrypted and unmodified.

Security APIs

Authorisation API

Authorisation API

All Nedbank APIs use OAuth 2.0 for authentication and authorisation. To successfully use other APIs, you must subscribe to this API.
