- To verify your identity, you need to prepare photos of one of the following documents: passport, national ID card, driver’s license, etc., including your full name, date of birth, and address.
- All four sides of the photo/scan should be visible, and the text should be legible.
- You can provide documents in the following formats: PNG./JPG/JPEG and PDF.
The verification steps are as follows:
– Click on “Settings” > “Upload document” > “Upload document” box.
– Select the document type used for identity verification and upload photos.
For documents with information on 2 sides, such as an ID card or driving license, upload 2 sides (front and back) of the document.
– Once you have uploaded the requested documents, Capital.com will send you a request to take a live selfie. Click on “Account” > “Account status”, and you will see the “Take a video selfie” window as shown below:
– Click on “I’m ready” and follow the instructions. Then, you will be notified when the process is complete.
You will also receive a confirmation email once your document is approved.
As a rule, the verification process should be completed within 48 hours. However, if you follow the requirements correctly and provide all the information, it only takes 3 minutes for your account to be verified. And then, you can start to log in and make transactions.
