Why may I have to select the account type that I want to connect?

Banks provide various technical options for the retrieval of account information, such as the API required by PSD2 (see also category ➤ Regulation and Financial Supervision, the question: What is the PSD2). Via this official interface, your bank provides us with information about your payment accounts upon your consent. However, you can also use the finleap connect information service to integrate other financial products, such as savings accounts, credit cards or securities accounts, with the partner service. However, information about these accounts is not transmitted via the APIs mentioned above but, as has been the case so far, via screen scraping or the HBCI/FinTS connection.

In order to choose the correct connection method, you may have to select the account type you want to connect in the frontend.
