With the ID Card Data option enabled in the admin's Compliance panel, you can require that your users scan their U.S., Canadian, or South African driver licenses to make purchases larger than a set amount.
From their license, the user data collected is that contained in the PDF-417 2D barcode on the back of the card, and is recorded in the server's database of customers.
As the first tier in KYC, all users will identify via their phone number, which becomes an account with which their ID card and all further data is linked.
ID card scanning is enabled in lamassu-machine version v3.6.5 and above.
Enabling ID card scanning
Before enabling ID Card Data, please ensure SMS is properly configured via the article: Enabling SMS Compliance
To enable ID scanning, set the 'ID Card Data' tier in the Compliance panel to on, and set an ID Card Data fiat threshold higher than the SMS threshold and click Submit.
Users upon attempting to insert more than the threshold will be prompted to either scan the back of their ID card, or complete the transaction by sending the crypto for that which they've already inserted.
Once an ID card's data is on file, it is thereafter associated with that user's phone number, such that they will not need to scan their card again after identifying via SMS in subsequent transactions.
Some licenses' barcodes are quite dense, making reading them more difficult without the camera in fine focus. If you find it difficult to pick up your state or province's license, please check the alignment and focus of your machine's camera.
If you find that a particular state's ID card is not being picked up by the scanning bay, while other states' IDs are, then the parsing software may need adjustments particular to this state or province's format. Please create a support ticket so that we may investigate.
Additional compliance options
Please stay tuned as we introduce ID Card Photos for international ID capture in an upcoming version, along with admin views of detailed customer information, velocity thresholds, and further compliance options.
