Identification requirements

Once you’ve applied for an account, we need to make a few checks regarding your application. These are not credit checks - we simply do them to identify you and where you live.

If we are unable to verify your details automatically, we may get in touch and ask for further information.

All for £12.50 a month. See pricing
