Sometimes a card is flagged by our security team as requiring verification. There are many possible reasons why a card is flagged, and often it ends up being a case of better safe than sorry. We understand it can be annoying to be checked in this way, and the delay it causes, but we're trying to protect everyone from credit card fraud.
BidVertiser typically uses one of two methods of verification:
Two small charges
This method simply sees us charge two small values (each is below $1USD), we will then request that you fill in the boxes that will show on your account with these sums.
Here we require that you send us picture evidence. It will require images of the front and back of the card (to ensure you are in physical possession of it), and also an official photographic ID. If uploading these images, please ensure that they are smaller than 1mb each.
Once we receive the information verification is normally complete within 24 hours (often sooner), but at most within 2 business days.
