Creating an open banking platform

Software developers need tools that provide access to financial information and the ability to automate business processes. Our RESTful JSON APIs are designed to give full access to your data and become key building blocks within your technology stack.

Our APIs enable you to inquire on extensive wire data to attribute deposits, understand payment patterns, and cross reference account histories. You can also automate accounting tasks and transfer money 24/7 in real time between your accounts and the accounts of other Silvergate clients.
