Get Started with Account Opening

A step-by-step guide to help you get started with Account Opening.

Let's get started by running Account Opening in the sandbox environment. To start, you will need to sign up for an account on the Brankas Dashboard and generate an API key. You may use generated API key that includes Account Opening with the rights to read/write. We will be guiding you through this article from how to get started in the sandbox environment followed by the transition to go live.

Set Up Your Sandbox

There are 2 environments available. In the Sandbox environment, you can transact and call data with dummy banks, amounts, currencies and prototype your integrations. There are no limits in the sandbox environment and when you are ready, transition to the live mode where you will be transacting and calling data from customers.

Brankas provides 2 modes:
