PIV for KYC

Paydentity incorporates payment authentication with enhanced due diligence (EDD) Know Your Customer (KYC) to remotely link a person’s verified identity to an electronic payment, in order to satisfy Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) regulatory requirements.

As allowed by the UK’s 2017 JMLSG AT S.5.3.89, iSignthis creates a secret that is inserted into the account, which secret must be retrieved and confirmed by the payment services user to prove access and control of their account.
