Improving developer experience in our sandbox

At Belvo, we’re on a mission to help developers access financial data in the easiest way possible. To achieve this, we work relentlessly to improve our platform. We keep adding new features so that our clients can build the financial products and services that their customers need. 

After releasing our first data enrichment solution for income verification earlier this year, these are some of the other product updates that we’ve recently been working on. They include a fully re-vamped sandbox environment as well as access to Itaú, Caixa, and Santander business bank accounts in Brazil.

New capabilities for developers

Belvo’s sandbox environment allows clients to mimic any real-world use case during development. It allows developers to interact with banking, fiscal, and gig institutions. All of them, loaded with dummy data to test out a wide variety of user flows, including multi-factor authentication.

Now, we’ve completely reworked our sandbox environment to provide an even better developer experience. Thanks to these improvements, the sandbox environment is closer than ever to our production environment. This makes it trivial to build on top of the sandbox and switch to production when ready. 

This revamp includes:

  • More realistic generated transactions.
  • Localization of our test data for Mexico, Colombia, and Brazil (descriptions, amounts, currencies).
  • All types of institutions supported (banking, fiscal and gig economy).
  • All products available to test, including our new income verification product.
  • Comprehensive documentation with ready-to-test use cases.
  • Full support of our widget, recurrent links, and webhooks.

Connect to data from business banks in Brazil

Coverage is one of our key differentiating factors. Our financial API platform connects companies to their customers’ data from banking, gig economy, and fiscal sources. This covers more than 90% of all financial institutions in the three major fintech markets. Including Brazil, Mexico, and Colombia. And offering access to both personal and business bank accounts. 

Now, we officially provide connections to our first business bank accounts in Brazil. Itaú, Caixa, and Santander business accounts are fully available as part of our beta in Brazil. And as with any of our banking integrations, companies will be able to access all accounts. As well as a full history of transactions, and balances, along with the owners’ information.
