Flexible integration options

Plaid Link is what users see when they connect with Plaid, enabling them to securely link their financial accounts to your app or service and initiate payments.

In the UK and EU, you can choose between our plug and play Link for PIS and AIS, and a fully customisable Modular Link for PIS-only. Whichever integration option fits your needs, we offer:

  • Connections to 11,000+ financial institutions: We provide a simple way for users to connect to financial institutions in the UK, EU, US, and Canada—saving you the cost of building and maintaining integrations in-house. 

  • Rich integration options: We offer a broad range of options, including native mobile, full-page redirection integrations optimised for desktop, mobile web, and mobile devices, as well as web software development kits (SDKs).

  • Open banking/PSD2 compliant: Plaid’s integrations are open banking and PSD2 compliant, delivering secure and reliable access to the UK and EU financial ecosystems

If you have your own payment initiation license, Plaid offers a fully whitelabelled solution for full user-interface control. Under these circumstances, you and not Plaid would be providing PIS.

Plaid Link was easy to integrate within Paysend and offers the best in class UX with complete control. We built with Plaid’s SDKs and fully customised the UX to match our need of saving time and complexities for our customers.
