The following questions should be considered when selecting an API for the EBICS communication:
- Does the API match my system environment and programming language?
- How present is the API on the market? Do a large number of licensees exist?
- How much economic strength does the provider have? Can a long-term support be guaranteed?
- Are the different national variants of EBICS (DK, CFONB, SIX) supported?
- Can extensions be realised without a modification of the API itself?
- Is a dependency on the manufacturer of the API acceptable?
