Getting started

API Quickstart

This guide is a step by step walk through of how to integrate your application with the Basiq API. There are two parts:

  1. Making your first call to the Basiq API: 15 mins
  2. Connecting financial institutions & fetching aggregated data: 15 mins

To follow along there are a couple of prerequisites:

  • Some experience with Node.js (this is the language we will be using) or another scripting language,

  • an IDE, such as Visual Studio Code,

  • an application ready to start making calls to the Basiq API. We recommend checking out the express site to see how to spin one up quickly.


If you have no coding experience, or you just want to test out the API without writing any application code, check out our code free guide using the Postman Collection to get up and running in 10 minutes.

Alternatively, you can skip the walk-through’s and dive head first into our detailed API docs.
