Know Your Customer (KYC) Policy
Before you can accept payments with Safepay, we need to learn more about you and your business. We collect this information to comply with requirements from regulators and financial partners. Without your KYC submission, we are unable to progress your application to use Safepay.
We normally wait for you to complete your sandbox integration before sending you our KYC form. If you would like to receive this earlier please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important to note
