Verification tips for residents of Germany

Updated 1 month ago by Alina

It is quite easy to verify your account if you are from Germany. Here are the documents that we accept for verification:

  1. Proof of identity - ID card (Ausweis) (both sides), passport (Reisepass) or driving licence (Führerschein) (both sides). 
  2. To verify your address, you can submit the following types of documents: bank statements, utility bills, Internet bills and landline phone bills and Meldebestätigungen (issued by your local municipality).
  3. The list of banks, which provide necessary documents (including, but not limited to): Deutsche bank, N26, Sparkassen, ING Bank, Commerzbank, Fidor, Deutsche Kreditbank, Postbank, Comdirect. NOTEPaper statements are accepted only with a bank seal, put in a bank branch!! E-statements are accepted only if original PDF file is provided.
  4. Major Internet providers: 1&1, Telekom Deutschland, Unity Media, UPC etc. E-Rechnungen are preferable. In case you submit a paper bill you might be requested to submit an additional address document. 
  5. We do accept Einkommersteuerbescheide, but they must at least have some QR-codes or bar codes.
  6. We do NOT accept different payment stubs from employers because the majority of such documents do not have any logo, seal or stamp or QR (bar) codes.
