Account Verification

Use Open Banking and the Basiq platform to instantly verify bank accounts, assist with KYC/AML and mitigate risk for a seamless user experience.



While fraud detection tools and techniques such as micro deposits, bank statements and credit bureaus can offer a safeguard against the risk of a business losing money, these common account verification methods used today generally miss the mark on mitigating fraud & illegal activities as well as capturing details incorrectly, due to their manual nature. They cause friction in the user experience (impacting customer interactions & conversion), they’re often costly (requiring manual processing) and overall a far less secure method of verifying accounts.


Connect by Basiq removes the need for a back and forth between the bank by streamlining user onboarding, allowing users to connect directly and securely to their bank accounts to share verified real-time account and transaction data including: Name, BSB, Account number, Income and more. Payers and collectors can enjoy a unified simple payment experience with immediate identification and verification with the added perks of reduced fraud risks and KYC/AML.
