We request you to provide us with a company’s extract of the Chamber of Commerce. The date of application of the extract, personal name, company name and company address must be present in this document.
Your business account can be used once all documents are verified.
Step 6: Complete the video verification (this is optional in order to directly raise your limits)
To raise your limit directly, you need to complete our video verification through Skype. Please note that the video verification can only commence when all your documents are verified.
- Getting Skype:
Skype is an easy to use application which is primarily used for video calls. You can download Skype here. If you do not have a webcam on your computer or laptop, you can also download Skype as an app on your mobile phone or tablet. You need to create a Skype account, if you want to use the application.
- Add us on Skype:
On your Skype account dashboard, in the top left corner under your name, you will find the search bar. Please enter 'live:25c52d9894125f80' and click on ‘AnycoinDirect video verification. Then please add us as your contact or contact us through our live chat at our website. As soon as you inform us of your Skype username through the e-mail you also registered at Skype, we will on our turn add your account and also contact you on Skype.
- The Skype video verification:
- Provide us with the email you used to create your Anycoin Direct account.
- We will check if the uploaded documents have been approved.
- After approval and confirmation, we can start the video call. Please make sure that your camera is switched on. Do not call us, we will call you!
- In the video call, you need to present the same identification document that you have uploaded on your Anycoin Direct account.
Our Skype channel is for video verifications only! We would never give you a coin address or ask for your coin address. Placing sell orders through Skype is something we would never do. If someone on Skype asks for this information, report them and contact us as soon as possible.
