You will see Account types and Segments referred to on our Coverage page:
- Account Type refers to the accounts we support. Examples: credit cards, savings accounts, current accounts etc.
- Segments refer to the type of service the user uses (Retail, Corporate, Business being the main ones).
For example, a user may hold a Business Current Account for CaixaBank (Spain) and wants to connect their account using our Data API which means we should support it;
- Account Type = Current Account
- Segment = Business
However, there is a caveat that not all accounts that a provider provides are supported via open banking like HSBC.
