API Journey




Help your customers get more from their spending with DBS cards. As customers spend on their DBS Cards, they accumulate DBS Points which can be used to redeem shopping and dining vouchers, electronic gadgets, movie discounts, air miles and more. Using DBS’ points core API functions, you can enable your customer to pay for their purchases with DBS Points or Daily$ balance. Customers can also see the conversion rate of their points to cash value, enabling them to make informed decisions before choosing to pay using points balance. Customers can request for payment of their purchases/bill using the Points or Daily$.

Things to note

  • The cash value after conversion of DBS points will yield the results in Singapore Dollars (SGD) currency only.
  • Balances returned are not specific to the card presented, but a consolidation of all the Cards under that specific Rewards scheme (Points or Daily$.
  • As MVP for Q3, 2017, the redemption of DBS Points for total bill amount as well as the partial bill amount is in scope for rewards (OLS) business.
  • Partners to ensure only DBS Cards are used (BIN check) for the Payment Gateway flow.
  • If Rewards redemption fails, partners must take care to reverse the Cards payment, as per their BAU process.
  • There’s no online method available for Refunds. The merchant should contact the bank as per existing process.
