PISP endpoints

Learn how to consume our dedicated PISP endpoints.

As part of the Open Banking framework for Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISPs), Adyen provides PISP endpoints to initiate payment transactions on behalf of users who have granted their consent.

Use your access token to authenticate your requests to the /payments endpoint.
