Paydoo Secures its Operations with KYC Services from Shufti Pro


London, UK (September 2019) Paydoo, a licensed electronic money institution, and payment provider, has partnered with Shufti Pro for securing its merchant onboarding process with customer identification, verification process and AML screening solution. 

With a proud client portfolio that includes leading crypto exchange platforms and FX companies from the United States and EU, Paydoo has established itself as a payment service provider that puts the security of processed payments ahead of anything else. Its RESTful open API architecture allows its customers to start processing payments with swift onboarding and seamless integration. With a business model that supports payments in 180 currencies for checkouts, secure cross border payments and latest transaction functionality with 2048-bit SSL data encryption, Paydoo is a force to reckon with the online payment processing industry. 

As a responsible business entity that did not want to let its platform be used by scammers, fraudsters or merchants with significant financial risk, Paydoo looked out for an identity verification service that can support their global payment operations and that is when Shufti Pro entered the picture. The Founder of Paydoo Sam Kohli explains the choice of Shufti Pro as their KYC service provider in the following words.

“Thanks to its flexible modular structure, Shufti Pro’s features are at the core of our state-of-the-art, proprietary, single-access merchant boarding system. It allows Paydoo to maintain full regulatory compliance by frictionlessly identifying and screening our merchants, ensuring seamless and rapid onboarding.”

Paydoo uses KYC services from Shufti Pro at merchant sign-up to verify the claimed identity of business owners. Not only that, but financial risk attached to a merchant’s identity is also assessed before the registration process via AML screening solution of Shufti Pro. 


Victor Fredung, CEO Shufti Pro, commented on the collaboration between the two companies; 

Shufti Pro and Paydoo have a philosophical consensus as both of our companies aspire to create an online marketplace free of online frauds and eliminate payment related scams. Both our companies even took the same technical route of a RESTful API architecture to make the integration process entirely flawless for our customers. This made working with Paydoo a real treat as we strengthened their payment processing operations by keeping out merchants with fake identities or with significant financial risk through our AI based verification services.


Paydoo uses Facial Verification & Document verification from Shufti Pro to verify the true identity of merchants that want to utilize their services for processing online transactions. With a turnaround time of less than one minute and a hybrid of Artificial & Human Intelligence, Shufti Pro is able to verify the identity of a merchant with relative ease.
