Payment Services Directive 2
The Payments Services Directive creates new capabilities to enable clients to interact with their payment account through certified Third Party Providers. The Third Party Providers will be able to show you a view across multiple payment accounts.
To receive services from Third Party Providers you need to authenticate yourself to UBS; this means you 'consent' to this service and the Third Party Provider. This authentication works like your e-banking login and you will use your same Access Card and Card Reader.
As of June 14 2019, you have the option to receive Account Information services from Third Party Providers that you have granted access to your current accounts and Third Party Providers have the option of receiving Confirmation of Funds information from UBS.
Account Information consists of balance and transaction information that you would normally see on your UBS account statement. To receive such services you need to give your consent to the Third Party Provider and successfully authenticate yourself to UBS. Your successful authentication to UBS allows Third Party Providers to receive account information for 90 days. After 90 days you need to re-authenticate yourself to ensure your consent is still given.
Confirmation of Funds
Provided you give your consent to UBS by authenticating yourself, Third Party Providers can receive information if you have sufficient funds for a specific card transaction.
