For the payments on the World Whisky Index we use the services of Online Payment Platform (OPP). Since 2019 the so-called PSD2 legislation came into force. This is an European guideline for payments of consumers and companies. More information about PSD2 can be found here.
The first time you withdraw or deposit money you will be asked to verify your identity and bank account. You will then be forwarded to the OPP platform, where you can choose between a verification via iDIN or by uploading a valid proof of identity (driver's license, passport or identity card).
The iDIN method is the easiest and quickest way to verify your account, especially if you use internet banking. More information about how iDIN works can be found here.
