Businesses across the UK use our verification of identity tool to conduct their KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti Money Laundering) checks on new customers. Knowing you’re dealing with a genuine customer who lives at the address they’ve provided gives you confidence to accept online and telephone orders.
Each identity check requires 20 credits to complete. You can purchase a range of credit packages from just £10 for 40 credits.

As a separate integrated solution, we also offer T2A Person Verify API . This can be built into an existing CRM system, website or app to assist with mandatory KYC and AML checks.
This identity verification service can be performed at a cost of 20 credits, per person searched (visit our credit packages page for more information on pricing).
After you submit a search, a result page will appear. If the identity of the person is genuine, a green tick and “verified” text will appear next to the name searched.
If we cannot verify the identity of the person, a red cross will appear next to their name on the results page.
How to verify a person?
To verify a single person’s identity, simply type their first name, surname, postcode and the first line of their address into the boxes above. Then click the "check" button.
If you have not purchased credits with us before, you’ll then be prompted to buy one of our credit packages and set up an account.
How to check the identity of multiple people?
Need to check the identity of a larger list of people? Simply click on the 'Check multiple people' tab in the search box. You'll then be prompted to upload a CSV file, which contains the details of the people to verify.
Once you've uploaded your file, a page appears allowing you to quickly map the columns in your CSV file to the required pieces of data, such as first name and postcode.
If your file already has headings, there’s a tick box on this page to indicate so. This will ensure that the headings are not treated as a submitted record.
Once you've mapped the columns of your CSV, click Continue. A page then appears with a summary of the number of records we could verify.
We will also confirm the total number of credits needed to perform the online verification of identity for all records. Verification of each individual person on the list is priced at 20 credits.
