When setting up your bank account, we use the information you enter to verify your identity. This is because our payment provider Stripe has a responsibility to their financial partners to verify your identity and confirm the legitimacy of your business. In short, Stripe has a legal obligation to know who you are. We make it easy for you by collecting this information from you upfront during setup to ensure we can always make payouts to your bank account.
In order to get you fully up and running, we require that you upload a scan or photograph of a government-issued photo ID.
