Piggy bank 64x64  Opening An Account

Personal & Business Accounts

Click on "Sign Up" in the upper right hand corner of the home page.
If you are selling a product or service, running a business or registering the account in the name of a company, choose "Business Account".

Most people who are shopping, sending gifts, or receiving commissions from an online program, only need a "Personal Account".

Put a checkmark next to the account type and click "Submit". The next screen displays the sign up form.

Fill out all of the required information. Ensure you put checkmarks next to: Receive email notifications and Yes, I have read the Terms & Conditions.

When all the information on the form is completed, click Sign Upto submit your application.
After you have completed the signup process, check your email for our confirmation message. The message arrives within 5 minutes (check your junkmail in case it ends up there). If no email arrives just signup again with the same info (you may have typed your email address wrong). Some email providers, such as aol, do not allow automated server emails. If you still do not receive a confirmation after trying twice, signup with a different email address.
When you receive your confirmation email, you will see a confirmation link as part of the welcome message – click on this link. If your email settings do not let you click on links in messages, copy and paste the long link into a new browser bar. You will be taken to our login screen where you enter your username and created login password for the very first time.

Admin 64x64  Verifying an Account

All Account Levels

No - personal account holders do not need to ever verify their accounts. Only if you wish to transact at higher levels is account verification required.

Business Accounts are required to verify their information if they are selling a product and/or service online.
Depending upon your country, you can use our instant ID Verification option! If this option does not work for you, or is not offered for your country, simply upload a copy of your photo ID and a recent phone, utility, bank or credit card statement. This is easily done in your "My Account" area.
This is a two step process:

1. Add your banking info in your "Banks & Cards" area
2. Complete our instant bank verification (USA and Canada) or our bank authorization form and send us a recent bank statement (full details in your "Banks & Cards" area).
Governments around the world depend on financial entities to monitor transactions for possible terrorist financing, money laundering to disguise the proceeds of crime and to identify politically exposed persons. Verifying the true identify of SolidTrust Pay account holders is in compliance with global efforts to eliminate financial crime.
