We are excited to announce that account verification is now available on bitify.com. Whilst this is not mandatory, we do encourage all our users to take the time to get their account verified with us and increase their trust level to potential buyers and sellers.
To coincide with this, we have also lifted the ban on sales of digital gift cards and money-to-Bitcoin items (e.g. PayPal) for sellers with verified accounts (buyers need not verify). Any such listings made by unverified accounts will be suspended by our moderators. We are imposing this restriction in order to comply with AML regulation, and protect our users against fraud.
Account verification is simple. After logging in to your account, go to your Profile Page and click on Account Verification. You will need to upload a photo/scan of two types of documents, as per the list below, and submit them to us.
Proof of Name and D.O.B:
- Driving Licence
- Government Issued Identity Card
Proof of Address (issued within the last three months):
- Utility Bill e.g. Electricity, Gas, Water, Landline phone bill
- Bank Statement
- House/Health/Motor insurance policy document
- Government stamped tax assessment notice
- Council rates notice/ council tax bill
If your account verification is successful, your public user profile and all of your listings will show our new Verified icon :

Your documents will be encrypted and stored in a secure database for offline review. We will not share your documents with any third party unless required by law to do so.
We will aim to process all verification requests within 48 hours of submission, but during busy periods this may take up to 5 business days, so please be patient with is.
Bitify would like to take this opportunity to wish you all an amazing festive seasons. Have a Merry Christmas and a great 2016. For those heading to the movies this week for the screening of Star Wars, May the Force be with you!
