How does it work?

Personal data

01Personal data

Your customer enters their personal data and provides their reference bank account.


Your customer logs into their bank account and triggers a cent transaction, verifying that they own the account.


Your customer receives an SMS TAN in order to create the qualified electronic signature (QES). After validation of the QES the verification process is completed.
