What is the Know Your Customer (KYC) program?
Huckster’s KYC program ensures a trusted marketplace for all users by confirming customer identity through documentation collection. This helps to prevent fraud, money laundering, and the financing of terrorism.
We believe that KYC is a requirement that ensures a safer and secure online workplace for all Huckster members. In addition, several of our service providers, such as our payment gateway providers require us to perform certain checks on customer identity.
How do I complete KYC to verify my identity
You can become Huckster Verified by submitting a valid government-issued ID card and 2 recent utility bills or bank statements or 1 of each.
What if the details on my account do not match the name on my ID or documentation?
The details registered on your Huckster account must match the name on your documentation. You will be asked to confirm your details during the verification process before submitting them for review.
What happens if I'm not able to pass KYC?
If you are unable to become Huckster Verified, Huckster may place an account limitation or suspend your account as a security measure.
Falsifying your identity is a crime. Huckster may report users that provide false documentation.
Sellers are encouraged to verify their identity to market themselves to potential Buyers as trusted members of our Huckster community. Users that verify their identity also benefit by receiving faster processing of their payments and faster resolution of account issues and disputes.
Verification may be completed by users at any time, but Huckster may also request users verify their identity to uphold our User Agreement.
To become Huckster Verified we require you provide:
Proof of identity by submitting a Government-issued photo ID.
Proof of address by submitting two different copies of a recent utility bill, such as an electric, gas, water or phone bill, or a recent bank statement.
