Frequently asked questions about Europace APIs
What is an API?
“API” is an abbreviation for Application Programming Interface. Europace APIs allow data from BaufiSmart and KreditSmart to be provided and consumed automatically. This is particularly helpful in the preparation or follow-up of advisory procedures or loan approvals.
Who are the Europace APIs for?
The Europace APIs are aimed at fin-techs, sales organisations, loan providers (for real estate financing, installment loans, home loan and savings contracts) and credit-related insurance companies.
Everyone with a Europace account has access to the APIs. To use the APIs, you need developers who are able to work with a common backend language (e.g. Java, PHP, Python or Ruby).
