General requirements for selfie verification

There are 2 different kinds of selfies which may be requested by Paybis.

  1. Selfie with ID
     
    • You need to take a photo of yourself holding your document in your hand
    • We need to be able to read all information on your document
    • Do not cover any information on your document
    • Please make sure that your face is clearly visible
       
  2.  Selfie with a handwritten note
     
    • You need to take a photo of yourself holding a handwritten note in your hand
    • We need to be able to read all information on the note
    • Please make sure that your face remains clearly visible

Note: text for a handwritten note will be provided during the verification process.

Here are several recommendations how to take a perfect selfie:

  • Take a selfie using your phone camera. We do not recommend to use a webcam, as in most cases the quality of a photo taken on a webcam is much lower than the quality of a photo taken on a smartphone’s camera.
  • Before taking a selfie please make sure that lighting in your room is good enough.
  • If you are not able to take a selfie by yourself, you can always ask someone to help you out with it.
