Step by Step Guide

Step 1: Sign Up with Your Email

  • To begin the verification process, sign up using your email address. This email is necessary to create a BASIQ user, which will be essential for the next steps. When you sign up, a user is created with the following information:
    • Email: The email address you provide (e.g., [email protected]).
    • Mobile: Your mobile phone number (e.g., +61410888666).
    • First Name: Your first name (e.g., Gavin).
    • Middle Name: Your middle name, if applicable (e.g., leave blank if not applicable).
    • Last Name: Your last name (e.g., Belson).


You must provide either a mobile number or an email address to create the user and continue.

Step 2: Pre-Consent Screen ( Optional )

  • Review the pre-consent information. This step is optional.

Step 3: Consent UI

  • Provide your consent to proceed.

Step 4: Select Institution

  • Choose your financial institution from the list provided.

Step 5: Connection to DataHolder

  • Steps 5 involve connecting to your DataHolder, which includes additional screens for account selection, reviewing consent from the DataHolder's end, and redirection back to BASIQ. These steps may vary depending on the specific bank or DataHolder.

Step 6: Redirection Back to BASIQ

  • You'll see a connection screen confirming the successful linkage between your account and the service. If the connection is unsuccessful, an error message will be displayed. Once confirmed, this screen indicates that your account is verified. You can then poll the job after clicking "Done," which will redirect you back to your client application.
