How is the identification done?

When identifying, we need a copy or a photo of your identity card (front and back) or your passport.

If you identify with your smartphone, you can take a photo of your ID or passport directly from the smartphone camera.

If you do not have ID data at hand, you can skip the identification step and upload your ID card later in your PAYLAX account.

We recommend to do the identification by smartphone and to photograph the ID directly with the camera.
