Do I need to have a paid bunq account to play with in the bunq API sandbox?

Can I use my PSD2 certificate with the production API key generated by bunq Developer?
No. PSD2-licensed parties must follow a dedicated flow. You’ll find more information about it on this link
I didn’t use my API key after creating the app and now it’s expired. How do I make it work again?
With security in mind, you have 1 hour to activate the API keys after you create the app. If you wait more than that, you’ll need to create a new app with a new API key.
How do I find the API credentials?
Just create an app, open its settings and you’ll find them in the Authentication tab.
What is the difference between private and public apps?
Private apps are the apps you create for personal automations only. Public apps, on
the other hand, can be listed to bunq Apps and must OAuth as the authentication
“You can have at most 1 pending first use credential.” What does this mean?
You need to activate the API key of the previously created app first. It expires if you
don’t use it after 1 hour.
