Unverified customers are able to sell without limitation but a limit of $1,000 is applicable when buying. This page describes how to verify your iGN account to lift such restriction, documents required, how to send your documents and what usually causes the verification delay. This is to prevent fraud and money laundering. It consists of Identity and Residential address verification.
This must be a Government Issued Identity Card. Only the following forms of identity are accepted
i. International Passport ii. Driver Licence iii. National ID card iv. Permanent Voters card (Note that temporary voters card is not accepted).
NOTICE: Expired ID card and Utility bill older than 3 months are not accepted!
This implies that the customers' address is verified. Utility bills allowed are:
i. Bank Statement ii. PHCN Bill iii. Water Bill iv. Waste Bill v. Phone Bill
NOTICE: This must be a recent utility bill issued in not more than 3 months.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Your documents must be well scanned and put under 200kb each in an acceptable file format (Only jpg, gif, and png file types are allowed for upload!). Heavy and blur files are rejected and this usually lead to the verification delay. We as well don't allow images taken with phones or cameras.
