What are the verification requirements? (Classic)

Verification requirements

As payment industry regulations require, Adyen has to verify the identity of its account holders. Information from the account holder is required to run these verification checks. The information needed depends on the account holder’s legal entity type and the country/region they operate in. 

Tip: Find a list of requirements.

Invalid Data status

An account holder’s verification check might receive the Invalid Data status because:

  • Listening to the ACCOUNT_HOLDER_VERIFICATION notification Adyen sends to inform the platform on the results of a verification check.
  • Performing a /getAccountHolder request. The response of this request returns a verification object which provides more information on the results of a verification check.
  •  Check the KYC tab of an account holder in the Customer Area.

Tip: Find more information on verification results.
