What is an API? 


A set of established guidelines known as an API, or application programming interface, allows various apps to communicate with one another. The company can open its application data and functionality to external third-party developers, business partners, and internal departments within their companies thanks to this intermediary layer, which handles data transfers across systems. An API's definitions and standards enable businesses to link their numerous applications daily, saving staff time and eradicating the silos that impede innovation and cooperation. The interface for communication between apps is provided through the API documentation for developers, simplifying applications' integration. The interfaces known as "fintech APIs" allow apps to communicate with the corresponding financial data and services that are stored on the servers of a company, organization, or bank. 

How does an API work? 


An easy approach to comprehending how APIs function is to consider a prevalent example, such as third-party payment processing. An eCommerce website may ask users to "Pay with Paypal" or another third-party system when purchasing. The connection is made by this function using APIs. An API request to get information when a customer clicks the payment button is called a call. The Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the API is used to handle this request, which comes with a request verb, headers, and occasionally a request body from an application to the web server. 

  1. The API contacts the external application or web server, in this case, the third-party payment system, after receiving a legitimate request from the product webpage.
  2. The server replies to the API with the data that was requested.
  3. The API sends the data to the application that requested it first; this is the product website. The queries and responses are handled by an API, even though the data transfer will vary based on the web service utilized. Since APIs communicate data within the computer or program and are not visible on the user interface, they appear to the user as a seamless connection.  

The co-founders of Pinwallet Payments affirmed the company's commitment to modernizing and changing how business is conducted in India. They said, “Pinwallet offers developers the ability to build a vast number of use cases leveraging our APIs and Entrepreneur, Startup businesses, Banking partners, NBFCs, MSME & Enterprises to deploy these solutions. Customers expect financial institutions to provide individualized, contextually relevant services. The launch of Pinwallet Payments coincides with the growing demand for financial institutions to digitize their operations. We perceive a very genuine possibility in collaborating with financial institutions to create a new global payment system for digital transactions.”  

What are the differences between online & offline transactions? 


Offline Transfers


A direct bank-to-bank transfer known as an offline transfer enables you to transfer money between accounts. Wire networks like the Federal Reserve Wire Network (FEDWIRE) and the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) are used to send money electronically. Your transfer may be routed through a number of correspondent banks along the way to the target bank account throughout this process. Every transaction is subject to payment gateway fees. 


Online Transfers


Online transfers are where the antiquated idea of wiring money and cutting-edge electronic funds transfer technologies meet (EFT). People can transmit money (or the data that represents that money) to another person using online transfers. It is also known as Internet Money Transfer because it can be carried out using any computer with an internet connection. To send online transfers, you need a reputable and trusted money transfer company. Up to 2,000 merchant UPI transactions are exempt from payment gateway fees.  


Which one is better and safer?


  1. Both of the transactions are secure.
  2. Each has a check and balance system.
  3. Both concern the corresponding bank accounts.
  4. DMT does not gratify the customer and still involves some friction in completing transactions.
  5. Overall With a UPI, the procedure can be finished in a short amount of time. Fewer steps and time are required to complete a transaction, which reduces friction.
  6. Additionally, it seems easier and more straightforward to do a UPI transaction as long as there is no additional fee.
