We look under the hood to find out how the Tink tech team tackles the challenges of building our latest lending product, Expense Check – a feature that allows you to assess affordability with facts rather than assumptions.
Tink’s new product Expense Check enables lenders to accurately assess applicant’s affordability with open banking. With real-time, granulated expense data, lenders can check the applicant’s creditworthiness in a matter of minutes.
The way our enhanced credit scoring solution works is quite simple: Tink gives you access to real-time financial data, as well as insights into spending behaviours so you can feed your credit scoring models. This results in a quick, reliable credit or risk assessment – so customers can get a better experience, and businesses can minimise risks.
In the first part of this series, we’ve gone through the 'what is' of our enhanced credit scoring solution. In this second article, we’ll dive into the ‘why’ – the concrete benefits it brings, and how it can positively affect consumers’ lives.
In the last year, we’ve learned the power of “show, not tell”. We built 50 prototypes to show 50 prospective customers what they could do with our tech – and we learned a few things along the way. The biggest lesson? How the right demo can distill a three-hour sales meeting into just 15 minutes.
Since we first set foot in the Netherlands, it’s blossomed into a leading hub for financial innovation. The open banking movement will only reinforce this trend. So we’re thrilled to go live with the Tink platform and let Dutch businesses build game-changing financial services using PSD2 APIs.

A key to simple onboarding is removing any unnecessary friction in your user journey. Tink can help do that by automatically filling in forms for customers, so they can skip the manual work and get started more quickly.

How do you build the future of financial services? We had a chat with Tinkers Jon Nilsson and Henry Kupty from the finance management team to learn more about how they work to transform financial data into delightful user experiences.
Financial institutions across Europe are under pressure to deliver increasingly sophisticated services that simplify how people manage their money. Actionable insights can help make this a reality by enabling you to give customers a truly personal experience, which drives engagement, increases trust and boosts sales - all while helping people be smarter with their money. This is how it works.
In digital banking, personal finance management (PFM) is a key contributor to customer engagement. If you can be the go-to place for customers to manage their finances, that can easily turn into increased loyalty – and sales. With Tink’s PFM SDKs, making PFM happen doesn’t need to be a massive undertaking. You can get up in running in a few hours, saving developer time and getting to market quicker.
More banks are building personal finance management (PFM) features into their mobile banking solutions – spend monitoring, budgeting tools and charts that detail spending in different categories.
Offering personal finance management is a must for any financial service. Here’s how customers can manage their own PFM experience using the Tink console – complete with custom configurations and usage reports.
Continuous access to customers' financial data helps you give users more powerful and relevant services without them having to lift a finger. And you can start building right away.

Tink is taking PFM into the future with the split transactions feature. On the surface, it could seem like an incremental step forward – a new feature that many consumers have requested.

With our arrival in Portugal we’re giving developers access to financial data from 20 Portugese banks – and the tools to test, build and launch new services on top of the enriched data.
Customers’ first steps inside your service are critical. Asking them to fill in lengthy online applications in order to get started can lead many of them to abandon your offering – and perhaps go explore a competitor’s. Tink’s autofill solves this by fetching the information straight from the customers’ bank accounts and automatically filling it in, making for a more seamless experience – and higher conversion rates.
At Tink we’re big believers in doing things at scale. Full data coverage across all European markets is the mission, but, somewhat unsurprisingly, it’s not without its complications.
Learn all about the most common account verification methods used today, why they don’t always meet today’s digital customers’ expectations – and how you can use open banking to provide a faster, safer, and simpler solution.
