API is a way for two different systems to communicate to each other. One platform sends an API call (request) to another including the instruction to perform an action. Based on instructions and details in the API call, the second platform performs requested action and sends the reply back, or rejects to perform the requested action.

What is Faster Payments?
It is a UK Banking initiative (officially launched 27 May 2008) to reduce payment times between different banks' customer accounts from the three working days to typically a few seconds. Faster Payments is focused on small value transactions in GBP (up to 250 000 GBP) within UK and is available 24/7, 365 days. To check whether the account you’re sending money to can receive Faster Payments, use the sort code checker
What is a SEPA transfer?
SEPA (or the Single Euro Payments Area) is the new format for cross-border euro (EUR) bank transfers. SEPA aims to make cross-border EUR transfers within this area equivalent to a domestic transfer within your own country. SEPA is made up of the Eurozone, countries within the EU and a few other countries which also support EUR bank transfers.
What is CHAPS? Is it only available in UK?
CHAPS is a sterling same-day system that is used to settle high-value wholesale payments as well as time-critical, lower-value payments like buying or paying a deposit on a property. One of the key characteristics of CHAPS bank transfers is the fact that it is only used for sterling transactions within the United Kingdom. So, if you want to send a large sum of money from the US to the UK, from the UK to the US, or somewhere else entirely, you won't be able to use CHAPS. Currently Moorwand provides CHAPS IN - Overseas GBP
What is BACS?
BACS is the Bankers’ Automated Clearing System. BACS facilitates two bank-to-bank payment methods – Direct Debit and Direct Credit. Bacs Payment Schemes Limited, part of the UK retail payments authority Pay.UK, oversees the schemes which clear and settle these two payment methods. Whilst a Direct Debit takes money out of a consumer’s banks account – such as a bill, a Direct Credit transfers money in – such as a salary. The payments take 3 working days to clear.
