For security reasons, we occasionally need to verify that a payment is being made by, and is authorized by, the payment method owner. In order to authorize the order and verify your identity, you are required to provide a few documents.
Note: If you do not wish to provide this information, we offer alternative payment methods which generally do not require verification to complete. These payment methods include Crypto currencies such as USD Coin and Dai (available via Coinbase) and payments through Skrill Instant Bank Transfer (EU only). You may try cancelling your order and re-ordering with one of these alternative methods. Please note: In rare cases, verification may still be required for payments through Crypto.
The documents you may be asked to submit are:
- A clear, colored photograph of your government-issued photo ID
- A clear ‘selfie’ while holding your ID beside you
- A photo of the front of the card used for the transaction (bank payments)
- A screenshot of your payment receipt(bank payments)
- A screenshot of your crypto account (crypto payments)
Attach these documents in JPEG format in a reply directly to the email you received requesting the documents.
Read on for more information and guidelines on taking and providing these documents.
