What is a Periodic Risk Review (Franchisees)?

Periodic Risk Reviews

The Periodic Risk Review allows the Customer Risk Review (CRR) to review the KYC Data collected during the onboarding process and enable our merchants to update or correct this data. In other words, performing Periodic Risk Reviews allows us to remain compliant with international financial regulations and mitigate the risks inherent to any financial activity.
