New ‘digital handshake’ features released in the NxtPort Console

New features have been added to our Console to allow fully digital contract management between data providers and data users.

What is the NxtPort Console?

The NxtPort Console allows entity admins to manage all subscriptions and participations to the NxtPort API’s or Services, or "Use Cases" in general. It also provides an overview of which data was used by which entity in which use case. As of today our console also gives full control to Data Providers on defining data fees without any interaction of the NxtPort team, including setting up agreements between Data Users and Data Providers.

 

Data Fees

When requesting data from paid API's or Services on the NxtPort platform, a fee is charged. This fee is a combination of 3 variables: 

  • A transaction fee, set by NxtPort per use case
  • A Data fee, set up by the Data Provider. This fee varies for every use case and for every data user
  • A monthly subscription of €35 

In order for a Data User to request data from (some of) our API's, such as the Import Consignment API, a mutual agreement, or "digital handshake", between the relevant Data Provider and the Data User needs to be set up.
This agreement is secured and confirmed within the NxtPort Console: only after both parties have agreed upon the conditions, the data will be unlocked and available for usage.

Both Data User and Data Provider can initiate a "digital handshake" by requesting an offer or sending an offer to the other party. In such an offer, a data fee is set by the Data Provider whereafter the Data User can ‘Deny’ or ‘Accept’ the offer.
