Verifying Your Identity

Your Amazon Pay Payment Account will be used to receive funds processed through Amazon Pay and later disburse them to you. For regulatory reasons, we need to verify your personal, business, and banking information before you can use our service. The reason for verifying identity is that we must know who we are doing business with. Amazon Payments does due diligence to prevent money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illegal activities.

In case your business info rmation cannot be verified, we’ll ask for additional documents for proof of identity. Please check your emails regularly and respond in a timely manner.

Uploading valid, clearly-visible information will help the verification process happen smoothly. Wrong or incomplete information can delay your identify verification, and block your ability to receive payments or even conduct transactions via Amazon Pay.
