Product overview

Get to know Verify

Verify is an automated onboarding solution that lets you bring a full range of Know Your Customer/Business (KYC/KYB), anti-money laundering, and anti-fraud checks into your product via a single API.

Verify can help you:

  • satisfy your regulatory requirements and/or those set out by your banking partner
  • manage risk more efficiently by reducing and streamlining your manual review queue
  • improve your customers’ experience with a quick, simple, unified onboarding process

Verify uses pre-integrated data sources to run verification and screening checks on potential customers. You decide which checks are relevant to your business and set up acceptance criteria so that Verify can automatically approve or decline customers based on your risk appetite. You can also set up flags for cases that need to be reviewed by a human.

Verify provides a detailed breakdown of all check results in plain language, so manual reviews are clear and straightforward and your team can quickly make an informed decision.
