In order to add a Bpost Bank current account into Cake, you need... 🤔
your bank card,
a Bpost Bank card reader, and
the Bpost Bank Mobile app needs to be installed on your smartphone.
The European Bank Authority stated that banks have to support credit cards in the shortest possible timeframe.
We are expecting this in 2022. 📅
Savings and investments account(s)
The European legislation currently doesn't allow you to add your savings or investments account(s) in Cake. 😢😭
Using the "Add Account" flow, you can however store the number of these accounts in Cake.
This will enable us to start tracking transfers to/from your savings or investment accounts. 🎉

How much data does Bpost Bank provide?
The operating model of Cake is built upon the European Payment Service Directive version 2 (PSD2) directive. Under this directive, European consumers can request their bank to share their data with Trusted Third Parties (TPPs) such as Cake. 🎉
* A TPP, like Cake, is licensed and under the rigorous supervision of the National Bank where the company was launched. In the case of Cake, it's the National Bank of Belgium.
The PSD2 directive states that the banks should deliver the same data to Cake as it does to its own channels. This is however not already the case for all banks. 🤔
Currently, Bpost Bank only provides 90 days of data to Cake. This means that, upon connecting your Bpost Bank account, you can only see 3 months worth of data in your Cake app. 📅
Cake will, however, accumulate your transaction data; so after for example 3 months, the Cake app will be able to provide you insights for 6 months.
Note: We are in discussion with Bpost Bank and the National Bank of Belgium to ensure that the legal obligations are addressed in the coming months. 🤞
⚠️ If an error occurs or the flow fails, please do not hesitate to contact us using the "Support" function in the Cake app (Cake logo in the top right corner > Control centre > Support).💬
