Stripe Identity is built on top of technology that Stripe uses to verify millions of global users. It's a part of our own global Know Your Customer (KYC) process, risk operations, and more.
Fragmented government ID standards make it challenging to verify identities for global users. With Stripe Identity, you can confidently verify the authenticity of ID documents from over 100 countries.
Poor image capture is the most common reason legitimate users are mistakenly rejected. Stripe Identity guides users through photo-taking and automatically scores each frame to select the most readable image, maximising success rates.
Stripe Identity is built on the same technology we use to defend against attacks on our own global network. We’ve optimised our fraud prevention system with learnings from over a decade of experience fending off sophisticated fraudsters, and we are constantly updating our models to prevent the latest attack vectors.
Once Stripe Identity confirms a user’s identity, Financial Connections can verify the user owns a linked bank account to reduce the risk of account takeovers.
We decided to build the Verified Bot programme on Stripe Identity for 3 reasons: the user experience was seamless, integration was easier since we’re already using Stripe for payments, and our users trusted Stripe to help keep their identity information safe and secure.
We were able to easily update our existing Connect onboarding experience to collect additional verifications using Stripe Identity. This allows us to control payouts based on verification status to reduce fraud, while keeping our hosts on a single, consistent experience that’s powered by Stripe.
Stripe Identity helps our fraud team avoid hours of manual labour and reduces the risk of exposing sensitive user data. The entire verification process is now much faster and easier for legitimate users.
With Stripe Identity, we were able to build a progressive verification experience. We start with an ID number check, and if that fails we automatically ask for an ID document. This lets us keep our community safe without adding unnecessary friction.
Stripe Identity is based on expertise we’ve developed from building a global infrastructure that handles hundreds of billions of dollars in payments annually. Our systems are designed to collect consent and with privacy top of mind.
