  • Automatically synchronize accounts and transactions on a daily basis;
  • Automatically categorize financial transactions;

Integrations

The Salt Edge platform is incredibly easy to integrate with. We’ve built the Salt Edge Connect interface so your application could start importing your users' financial data in a matter of minutes.

However, if you think your application could benefit more from native look and feel, you can always contact us and we can discuss what would be the best solution for your app.

Formats

We use JSON for all the requests and responses, including the errors.
