Why does Zilch need to verify my identity?

We need to see your proof of ID.

Updated over a week ago

When you sign up to Zilch we'll ask you to provide a selfie and proof of ID โ€“ this is so we can make sure it's really you opening an account and not a fraudster using your name.

How does Zilch verify identity?

We'll ask you for a government-issued document that can confirm your identity. Head to our What ID can I use to sign up article to find out what documents we accept.

How long does it take to verify my identity?

Once we receive your proof of ID, verification usually takes up to five business days but can sometimes take a little longer. We'll keep you updated and you can start paying with Zilch as soon as we're done.
