Becoming a kevin. client has never been easier. We launched an improved client self-onboarding dashboard that allows companies to start testing and using kevin. payment initiation service quickly. Self-onboarding is entirely online, meaning users can save time and human resources by onboarding whenever convenient for them.
The dashboard allows users not only to begin onboarding to become a kevin. client but also set up shops and test the payment environment while the onboarding is in progress.
Companies can also track and filter all the transactions in the payment dashboard. The payment overview helps businesses 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 self-service dashboard, list its advantages and suggest what information company representatives will need for the onboarding process.
To start using kevin. dashboard, create a free account with your email address. Once your email address is verified, you’ll gain access to the dashboard.
When creating an account, you need to select your role in the company - head of legal entity or a representative. Choosing the former will require confirming user identity. A representative can fill out all the onboarding information on behalf of the head of the legal entity, but all the agreements will have to be signed by the head.
When you access the dashboard for the first time, you have two options:
- Begin the onboarding by entering your company details and creating a company profile.
- Test the payment flow by creating a shop in a sandbox environment. You can start testing before you begin your onboarding process or while you're waiting for compliance review.
Once you’re onboarded, you’ll see a third option on the dashboard homepage: Payments.
First, let’s walk you through creating a company profile.
Creating a company profile
To start the Know Your Customer (KYC) process, first enter your company details. Each question has an explanation for guidance, which you can see by hovering over the information icon next to the question.
In this section, you’ll be asked to select the main details about your company, such as the country of tax residence, which kevin. services you’re interested in and who owns the company.
Following up, you’ll be requested to enter information about your company such as company name, type and code. Continue to type in the company address. Moving on, you’ll be asked to fill out the questions about the head of the company and upload additional information.
While filling out the questionnaire, you can track your progress on the progress bar next to the form. Before submitting the company information, you can review and edit the data.
The review usually takes from 1-4 hours. Once the review is complete, you’ll be notified by email and on the dashboard homepage. To proceed, the owner of the company will be asked to sign the agreement.
Once the agreement is signed, you have successfully onboarded.
Creating a shop for testing
You can create a shop and start testing the payments before you start the KYC process or while waiting for the KYC compliance to be reviewed.
To create your first shop, select ‘Add shop’ on the dashboard homepage.
You’ll be asked to enter your website URL. Then, you’ll need to fill out the business bank account details and upload proof of bank account ownership.
Before submitting the shop information, you can review and edit the details to make sure the information is accurate.
While the shop is undergoing the compliance assessment, you can access API documentation and learn more about the integration process. Once the shop’s review is successful, you’ll be provided with API keys and be able to go live. Meanwhile, you can generate test API keys and use them in the sandbox environment.
