Alpaca Partners with Plaid to Simplify Money Transferring for Fintech Apps Built on Alpaca

Alpaca Integrates with Plaid to Send and Receive Payments

We’re excited to announce our latest integration and partnership with Plaid, a data network powering the digital financial ecosystem. Alpaca is committed to helping provide the best developer experience through its Broker API and is excited to help offer developers and Fintech apps a seamless authentication and funding process via Plaid. With Plaid, Alpaca is working to fuel the acceleration and growth of new fintech startups and tech innovators around the world.

Simplified Funding Experience

Alpaca’s integration with Plaid enables fintech apps to securely connect their own Plaid account onto the Alpaca platform. Fintech apps will have to activate the Alpaca integration within the Plaid dashboard. Fintech apps partners will generate Plaid Processor Tokens on behalf of their end users. This token will allow Alpaca to immediately retrieve a user’s bank details in order to deposit or withdraw funds on the Alpaca platform.

“The Plaid partnership enables developers using our APIs to securely add funding functionality to their apps with only a few lines of code, making it faster and easier than ever to bring their products to market.” - Richard Kim, Director of Success Operations
