The Top 10 Benefits of E-Sign's ID Checker

Verifying the identity of your customers is of paramount importance for any secure transaction, especially if your business needs to remain compliant with financial regulations. The internet is a wonderful place, but you can never be 100% sure who you’re dealing with when completing transactions online. The ability to identify your customers is an essential part of AML, Know Your Customer and Customer Due Diligence.

As businesses of all sectors embrace increased digitalisation and online document management, the issue of identity verification is firm in the minds of businesses. It raises questions of security, compliance, and safety.

E-Sign understand how important the ID checker process is in the digital transaction process. Here are the top 10 benefits of using ID Checker verification when completing online transactions and collecting signatures from customers, clients or business partners.

Integrated into the E-Sign Platform and Electronic Signature Process

Designed with convenience and simplicity in mind, our E-Sign iD Checker is integrated into the E-Sign platform and electronic signature process.  When you go to sign and send your documents, you are presented with the option to enable E-Sign’s iD Checker. Simply click on the button underneath the sending options and incorporate real-world ID verification into the document signature process.

As for your signers, they are invited to e-sign the document as normal but are first directed to the ID validation page.  For optimum verification, E-Sign asks your signers to enter their name, gender, birthday, address and either passport or driving licence details. This information is then checked against our live global ID database. Once their identity has been verified, the user can then e-sign and return the document to you.


Secure and Traceable Transactions

Preventing fraud is of utmost importance to businesses of all sizes, especially those managing high-value transactions and deals. Verifying the identity of your signers is vital for protecting your business from financial costs and reputational damage, as well as complying with business due diligence and anti-money laundering regulation. By cross referencing against a global ID database, the following identity checks can be completed to ensure your signers are who they say they are:

  • Age Verification
  • Identity Verification
  • Anti-Money Laundering (AML)
  • Know Your Customer (KYC)
  • PEPs and Sanctions

With our embedded iD Checker verifying the identity of your signers, you can ensure your documents follow stringent ID checks and remain compliant with business regulations.
