What is CreditKudos & Open Banking?

Posted on

AppToPay uses CreditKudos, an Open Banking powered service, to quickly, accurately and securely work out your income and expenditure in order to issue you with an appropriate credit limit based on your individual circumstances.

Think of Open Banking as a modern way of sending someone a copy of your bank statement as you might have done in years gone by when applying for a credit account.

By using the secure Open Banking platform we know that the information you provide to us is accurate and true so we can issue you with an instant credit limit decision.

Our access to your information is temporary and on a ‘view only’ basis.

We won’t access anything apart from the summarised information about your spending patterns and you can revoke our access to that information at any time.

You can learn more about Open Banking here or visit your banks website and search 'Open Banking'.
