Plaid Exchange

Introduction

Financial institutions on the Plaid Exchange API can leverage Abound's Transaction Predictions to enrich transactional data sets in real-time and bring a more complete offering to their banking experiences.

Tax Deduction Annotations

Using the Abound + Plaid Exchange integration, transactional data is automatically annotated by Abound to identify tax-deductible expenses. These annotations are added to the transactions in real time and are then passed back to the financial institution over the Plaid Exchange API.

Below is a sample annotation payload representing the data that Abound adds to a transaction set.
