Features New

Stripe’s identity verification product empowers you to:

  • Verify identity with keyed-in information, ID documents, and biometric selfie data
  • Build progressive verification flows that start with keyed-in information and only request documents as needed
  • Match ID documents to their holders with biometric selfie verification

How it works

  1. Send your users to Stripe’s conversion-optimized document capture UI. You can customize the UI to match your branding.
  2. Your users capture images of physical ID documents with their desktop or mobile phone camera and send them to Stripe. You can configure this step to include keyed-in information and/or selfie verification.
  3. Stripe verifies the authenticity of the ID document.
  4. You receive a webhook event with the verification results. You can also review the results in your Stripe Dashboard or access the data through the API.
