What is the second Payment Services Directive (PSD2)?

The European Payment Services Directives are a set of regulations that were created to facilitate an innovative and competitive cross-European payments environment. In the first Payment Services Directive (PSD), the Single Euro Payment Area (SEPA) was defined.

PSD2 allows more flexibility in Open API construction that the UK’s Open Banking regulation.
