Verified identities

Regardless of the industry, clearly verified identities are often a key element of any core business. Especially if your service or products are largely or exclusively sold online. After all, as an online service provider, you want or need to know who you are doing business with for regulatory reasons. SwissID takes care of this identification process for you (including age verification), enabling you to concentrate on your core business.

Identity levels to suit your use case

SwissID makes a distinction between two verified identity levels (level 1 and level 2). Which level of identification is the right one for you depends on the service you offer online. The graphic below shows an example of which use cases can be assigned to which level. Pricing is based on the number of users and the desired identification level requirements. SwissID can be easily integrated into existing websites, online shops or e-commerce platforms.
