4.2.1 "periodicPaymentInitiationRequest" interface

This API create a standing order initiation resource for recurrent i.e. periodic payments with all data relevant for the corresponding payment product and the execution of the standing order. This is the first step in the API to initiate the related recurring/periodic payment.

Input parameters

Attribute Description
psu-id The ID of the PSU in the ASPSP client interface. Mandatory if “psu-corporate-id” is valorized.
psu-id-type Type of the PSU-ID, needed in scenarios where PSUs have several PSU-IDs as access possibility.
psu-corporate-id Identification of a Corporate, only used in a corporate context.
psu-corporate-id-type This is describing the type of the identification needed by the ASPSP to identify the

PSU-Corporate-ID content.

consent-id This data element may be contained, if the payment initiation transaction is part of a session, i.e. combined AIS/PIS service. This then contains the “consentId” of the related AIS consent, which was performed prior to this payment initiation.
tpp-signature-preferred Only “true” or “false” values are accepted.

If it equals “true”, the TPP prefers a redirect over an embedded SCA approach. If it equals “false”, the TPP prefers not to be redirected for SCA. The ASPSP will then choose between the Embedded or the Decoupled SCA approach, depending on the choice of the SCA procedure by the TPP/PSU. If the parameter is not used, the ASPSP will choose the SCA approach to be applied depending on the SCA method chosen by the TPP/PSU.

tpp-nok-redirect-uri If this URI is contained, the TPP is asking to redirect the transaction flow to this address instead of the TPP-Redirect-URI in case of a negative result of the redirect SCA method. This might be ignored by the ASPSP.
tpp-signature-certificate This is a X509 certificate that the TPP uses for signing the request, in base64 encoding.

This certificate is in PEM format without the "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----" and "-----END CERTIFICATE-----" Must be contained if a signature is contained, see above.

signature A signature of the request by the TPP on application level. This might be mandated by the account servicing payment service provider.
digest Is contained if and only if the “Signature” element is contained in the header of the request.

The “digest” Header contains a Hash of the message body. The only hash algorithms that may be used to calculate the digest within the context of this specification are SHA-256 and SHA-512.

aspsp-product-code The account servicing payment service provider product code.
payment-product The addressed payment product endpoint.

The value list of products supported is:
- sepa-credit-transfers
- instant-sepa-credit-transfers
- target-2-payments
- cross-border-credit-transfers

debtorAccount The account identification which can be used on payload-level to address specific accounts.
instructedAmount Transaction amount to be checked within the funds check mechanism.
creditorAccount The account identification which can be used on payload-level to address specific accounts.
transactionType Represents the payment method used

Possible values are:
- unattended_terminal_transaction (e.g. transportation or parking)

- remote_transaction

Output parameters

Attribute Description
Result Code Result of the periodic payment initiation request
Error Management Description of the type of error obtained in the event that the outcome is negative.
transactionStatus Accepted values:


paymentId The UUID of the generated payment initiation resource.
scaMethods This data element might be contained, if SCA is required and if the PSU has a choice between different authentication methods.

If this data element is contained, then there is also an hyperlink of type “selectAuthenticationMethods” contained in the response body. These methods shall be presented towards the PSU for selection by the TPP.

chosenScaMethod This data element is only contained in the response if the APSPS has chosen the Embedded SCA Approach, if the PSU is already identified.
