Becoming a kevin. client has never been easier. We’ve recently launched a client self-onboarding service that allows merchants to start using kevin. payment initiation service quickly. Self-onboarding is entirely online, meaning merchants can save time and human resources by onboarding whenever is most convenient for them.
Together with the client self-onboarding flow, we have also updated our payment dashboard. kevin. clients can now track and filter all transactions in one place. The payment overview helps merchants stay on top of their client transactions and provides essential payment data.
This quick start guide will explain how to start onboarding with kevin.’s new self-service, its advantages and what information merchants can see in their payment dashboard.
Client self-onboarding flow
kevin.’s self-onboarding is straightforward. The flow consists of five steps: ID verification, Know Your Customer (KYC) form, Setting up a project, Agreement and Activation.
1. ID verification
This is a standard ID verification process that most people are familiar with. The client needs to scan a valid passport or identity card and take a picture of themselves. The kevin. team will then review the ID and picture and either confirm the ID or ask for a resubmission.
2. KYC form
The client needs to choose whether they’re onboarding as an individual or a company. When choosing the former, clients need to provide information about themselves, name activity details and ultimate beneficiaries. The client needs to enter their company details, name representatives and fill out other business information and ultimate beneficiaries. After all the information is complete, the KYC form needs to be signed. Our legal team reviews and confirms the form, or returns it if revisions are needed.
3. Setting up a project
Users can set up as many projects as they need. During the project, a client will be asked to provide their website details. The client receives integration keys that can be copied and safely stored for future reference during this step. Once submitted, kevin. legal team reviews the projects for confirmation.
When each of the previous steps has been completed and confirmed, the client needs to agree with terms and conditions and sign an agreement, which can be downloaded from the onboarding site. Alternatively, the agreement can be signed via an electronic signature platform.
The client can now either continue testing the service or activate the keys and start collecting payments via kevin. right away.
Bear in mind that some steps can be filled out simultaneously, while others need to be confirmed before moving on. For example, once the ID verification (step one) is completed and approved, the client can move on to filling out the KYC form (step two) and setting up a project (step three). Steps two and three have to be completed and approved by our legal department before you can sign the agreement (step four).
All the entered information can be saved as a draft, and clients can come back to submit the data at their convenience.
kevin.’s self-onboarding benefits
Quick and easy self-onboarding provides many benefits for kevin. clients:
- Convenience - merchants can submit their information entirely remotely and whenever available. They can also save their progress and come back to the forms later if needed.
- Progress tracking - clients will always know the status of their submissions: approved, input needed, in review, or rejected.
- Speed - in most cases, self-onboarding may be finished as quickly as all the documents are submitted and approved.
- Security - self-onboarding is completely safe. Clients need to use two-factor authentication to log in to their onboarding site to ensure maximum security.
Once onboarded, kevin. clients gain access to kevin. payment dashboard. The dashboard allows companies to conveniently overview all the payments. It also enables searching for specific transactions based on their ID or filtering payments based on their type and other parameters.
The dashboard displays payment status (started, pending, completed, failed), order ID, payment amount, method, type (payment or refund), payment flow (bank, card, redirect), date and indicates whether the payment has been refunded.
All information can also be extracted as a .csv file.
