Benefits over BankID server

For merchants

There are several benefits for merchants integrating BankID over OIDC rather than using a legacy integration via a locally installed BankID-server:

  • The integration interface is the same for both BankID netcentric and BankID on mobile. 
  • The merchant does not need to implement any GUI for BankID on mobile since it is taken care of by the OIDC Provider itself
  • The merchant does not need to implement a selector dialog for netcentric vs. mobil since the OIDC Provider offers such a selector dialogue.
  • The integration interface is based on an industry-standard API being much more convenient than implementing via the legacy BankID-server.
  • The merchant may have access to value-adding services that are not available via the legacy BankID server.
  • There is no need to update servers on occasion; all updates are done by BankID

For partners

There are several benefits for partners as well:

  • No administration of merchant certificates: this is handled by BankID
  • Access to new products which may only be available through OIDC
  • Easy integration with your own OIDC platform (if you use this for other services)
  • Value-adding features for administrating your customers (such as Splunk dashboards and insights (WIP), customer overview in our partner portal (WIP), easier access to invoices and transaction volumes (WIP)
  • In near future, we plan to offer BankID OIDC without having to order a merchant-specific certificate, making the onboarding process almost instantaneous
