    React 16.8+


    With npm:

    npm install --save react-plaid-link

    With yarn

    yarn add react-plaid-link


    Please refer to the official Plaid Link docs for a more holistic understanding of Plaid Link.


    Head to the react-plaid-link storybook to try out a live demo.

    See the examples folder for various complete source code examples.

    Using React hooks

    This is the preferred approach for integrating with Plaid Link in React.

    Note: token can be null initially and then set once you fetch or generate a link_token asynchronously.

    ℹ️ See a full source code examples of using hooks:

    import { usePlaidLink } from 'react-plaid-link';
    // ...
    const { open, ready } = usePlaidLink({
      token: '<GENERATED_LINK_TOKEN>',
      onSuccess: (public_token, metadata) => {
        // send public_token to server
    return (
      <button onClick={() => open()} disabled={!ready}>
        Connect a bank account

    Available Link configuration options

    ℹ️ See src/types/index.ts for exported types.

    Please refer to the official Plaid Link docs for a more holistic understanding of the various Link options and the link_token.

    usePlaidLink arguments

    key type
    token string | null
    onSuccess (public_token: string, metadata: PlaidLinkOnSuccessMetadata) => void
    onExit (error: null | PlaidLinkError, metadata: PlaidLinkOnExitMetadata) => void
    onEvent (eventName: PlaidLinkStableEvent | string, metadata: PlaidLinkOnEventMetadata) => void
    onLoad () => void
    receivedRedirectUri string | null | undefined

    usePlaidLink return value

    key type
    open () => void
    ready boolean
    error ErrorEvent | null
    exit (options?: { force: boolean }, callback?: () => void) => void

    OAuth / opening Link without a button click

    Handling OAuth redirects requires opening Link without any user input (such as clicking a button). This can also be useful if you simply want Link to open immediately when your page or component renders.

    ℹ️ See full source code example at examples/oauth.tsx

    import { usePlaidLink } from 'react-plaid-link';
    // ...
    const { open, ready } = usePlaidLink(config);
    // open Link immediately when ready
    React.useEffect(() => {
      if (ready) {
    }, [ready, open]);
    return <></>;

    Using the pre-built component instead of the usePlaidLink hook

    If you cannot use React hooks for legacy reasons such as incompatibility with class components, you can use the PlaidLink component.

    ℹ️ See full source code example at examples/component.tsx

    import { PlaidLink } from "react-plaid-link";
    const App extends React.Component {
      // ...
      render() {
        return (
            // onEvent={...}
            // onExit={...}
            Link your bank account

    TypeScript definitions for react-plaid-link are built into the npm package. If you have previously installed @types/react-plaid-link before this package had types, please uninstall it in favor of built-in types.
