Fetch data, initiate payments, and more

Akahu's API supports both one-off and ongoing account connectivity. Our team is here to help you navigate the options to power your use cases.


Once a bank account is connected, you can initiate a payment with a simple API call. It's an order of magnitude cheaper than cards, faster to settle, simple to reconcile, and convenient for users.
