Getting Started with Brankas: Dashboard Sign Up and Staging Site

Open finance can be a confusing term to be thrown at. We suggest that you get your hands on APIs and get testing to understand our products and services better. We do have our Sales and Customer Support team on standby to help you fit the product and services that best suit your business. Here are the 5 steps:

1. Register an account on Brank.as

You can run APIs in a sandbox environment on any Brankas products such as Direct, Statement, Disburse and more on the Brankas Dashboard. There are no requirements to test Brankas APIs, simply sign up, visit brank.as/sign-up and fill the required fields.

Sign up for an account on the Brankas Dashboard

Log in, create API Key and immediately start testing our APIs!

2. Save Your Business Details

Next, we suggest that you have your business information saved to enable you to:

  • Add destination account for Direct - Using Direct API
  • Save your Callback URL

To save your business information on the Brankas Dashboard, click on Settings and save your business information in the Business tab.

3. Create API Key

We highly suggest that you test Brankas APIs available on docs.brank.as. To start testing, generate API key on your Brankas Dashboard like so:

  1. Click on the API key menu

    create a brankas api key

  2. Input your login password in the field and an API key will be generated.

  3. Copy the API key to saved location. For security purposes, Brankas will not be storing any API keys generated. We highly suggest keeping it safe on your machine.

Do note that when a new API key is generated on either staging or live environments, the previous API key will be made invalid.

4. Saving Callback URL

Callback URLs or webhooks are important to retrieve the status endpoint of each API transaction. You can set up your callback by following this step by step guide below:

  1. Click on the Settings menu and Callback URL tab

  2. Enter your callback URL and hit Save Changes.

    save the callback url

    Tips: You can generate a testing callback URL in webhook.site as well if you do not already have an infrastructure ready.

5. Invite Your Team!

Lastly, bring the party over and invite your team members on to Brankas Dashboard, give them a feel of Brankas products. There are several user roles available. Here’s how to invite your team members:

  1. Click on the User menu.

  2. Click on Invite New User.

  3. Fill user information.

    invite your team to brankas dashboard

Learn How Brankas Is Helping Lenders Acquire More Customers

Traditionally, consumer lending has been a long and tedious process. To apply for a credit card, you would have to provide your proof of income, bank statement history, and other documents to verify that you are able to repay your credit, often requiring trips to your bank branch. The underwriting process may also take weeks or months before the approval of a loan. They merit a high amount of effort on the part of both the borrower and the lender.
