What is KYC?

Understanding regulatory compliance for onboarding individuals

Updated over a week ago

Know Your Customer (KYC) is a set of procedures used to verify a customer’s identity.


KYC is an essential framework for combating money laundering and other illicit financial activities. Onboarding via KYC verification is vital as confirming a customer’s identity allows Mercuryo to establish associated risks of conducting business with them.

Verification process

Customers will need to fill in a form with relevant personal details, upload identification documents, and take selfies. This process generally should take no longer than 10 minutes.
