ICBC (Asia) OpenAPI Developer Portal

To facilitate the Open Application Programming Interface Framework issued by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (“HKMA”) in July 2018, ICBC (Asia) has opened the Application Programming Interface (“Open API”), so that customers can get our product information or enjoy our services through the Third-Party Service Providers.

What is Open API?
Application programming interface (“API”) is a computer programming approach for facilitating exchange of information and executing instructions between different computer systems. Open APIs refer to APIs that allow third party to access to systems of an organization. Open API allows the Bank to share details about their products and services with third-party service providers who can create their own applications basing on these APIs for their own customers, such as comparing interest rate or FX rate among banks, showing branches or ATMs on map applications.

How can customers use Open API safely?
The Bank will release the Open Banking partners (i,e. Third-party Service Providers) on this page from time to time. Before trying to use our services through a third-party application or website, please make sure the corresponding third-party service provider is on the ICBC (Asia) Third-party Service Provider Partners List on this page.

When you use our services through third-party applications or websites, please DO NOT disclose your bank account number, user name, password or one-time password. Should you have any queries, please contact us.
