What happens to the photo ID you requested?
Once you reach a certain threshold as a seller or as a buyer, we must verify your billing address. To do so, we ask for a photo of your drivers licence, or a photo of your passport and utility bill (you don't need to send photo of utility bill if you send us a drivers licence). If you are a seller, you will need to complete your bank details as we will not pay into PayPal over a certain threshold. We use a third party security company to verify your details. They follow a strict protocol to ensure your details remain within their company, and are hidden from their employees and agents (we use a web interface). This makes our enquiries anonymous.
