APIs will play an important role in helping enabling innovators and third parties to leverage the New Payments Platform’s capabilities. From supporting the ability to initiate payments through to assisting ecommerce transactions and other payment experiences, the application of APIs are endless.

Designed to support inter-operability and standardisation, the NPP API Framework defines the key technical approach and mandatory data attributes for NPP APIs, aligned to ISO 20022 standards.

While NPP Australia does not mandate the use of this framework, we encourage NPP participants, third party service providers and software developers to refer to this framework, or build further upon it, when developing API solutions for NPP transactions.

This initial version of the Framework contains samples for three APIs, which illustrate how the framework can be used:

  • PayID Resolution Request
  • Payment Initiation Request
  • Payment Status Request

This API Framework will be extended over time and will be maintained by NPP Australia.
