How to verify your account on Liquid
To use all the features of Liquid, our banking partners require us to perform KYC (Know Your Customer) verification; here’s how it works.
Welcome to Liquid — a platform for contracts, projects, and payments to independent contractors, freelancers, vendors and suppliers. We support secure payments to 175+ countries worldwide in 2-3 business days.
Liquid works directly with banks who require us to perform KYC (Know Your Customer) verification as part of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) policies. KYC verification is a process where we verify the identity of a user and mitigate the potential risks of illegal intentions.
