eWallet verification
Posted by Natalia Bichan on 07 May 2020 01:55 PM

Verification procedure

After registering the account with FXOpen UK a user will be asked to fill in the personal details form and to pass the account verification procedure.

Verification is a confirmation of eWallet holder's identity. The FXOpen UK account verification gives a registered user a full access to the Personal area, including the ability to make deposits, withdrawals, transfers, etc.
At the moment the verification procedure requires the user's phone number confirmation and documents verification.

Note! After confirming a phone number, your account status will be still 'Not Verified'. To have your account verified, i.e. to get the 'Verified' status, please provide all the required documents. The account status will change automatically as soon as your documents are checked and approved by FXOpen UK Finance department.  


The current verification status is displayed in the 'Account status' section at the top right of My FXOpen.

Account verification normally takes up to 24-48 hours on business days.

Important: The time required to review the documents and verify your eWallet may increase if a user has to re-submit the required documents (because the documents were rejected, or additional documents were requested).


In this article, you can learn about the first two verification grades:


Phone number verification

To verify your phone:

  1. On the Profile → Verification page, under the 'Phone Number Verification' section, enter your phone number and click the SMS button.

  2. Enter the verification code sent to your phone and click Confirm
    If you haven't got the code, please click Resend code to be sent another one.

If you don't have a mobile phone or you haven't received an SMS with a confirmation code, you can verify your phone via Operator call.


Document verification

1. Proof of identity (one of the following):
