KYC Verification Process: The Procedure to Know Your Customer

KYC Verification Process
Why KYC important.jpg
Do you remember your visit to the bank branch when opening an account? As banks care about identity seriously, an actual visit to a branch was usually required before becoming a bank customer. As an individual, you would visit a bank and provide a valid ID. The bank staff would gather all the necessary information provided from the customer side to check the validity. In one word, bank staff and bank customers had to be at the same time in the same place.
However, thanks to the internet, now customers can create a bank account online. In the US, as long as the customers are 18 years or older and legal U.S. residents, online registration is available. What customers need to provide is 1) name, 2) date of birth, 3) Social Security Number, 4) phone number 5) email address, 6) physical U.S. address, 7) and a valid, government-issued photo ID such as driver's license if required during the online application. In other words, bank staff and bank customers do not need to be at the same time in the same place anymore. As long as the provided information is well prepared and clear, opening a bank account online became possible. So all these activities required by the bank through an actual visit to a financial center now have become possible online.
The process of Know Your Customer to verify who they say to be is asked by the business before starting the transaction. What has been added to the process is that once considered only available on a face-to-face KYC procedure has now become possible online. In other words, the traditional method of verifying a user has now transferred online.
