More FAQ on ID Verifications

How secure is this verification process?

We use a highly-trusted, leading provider called PassBase. PassBase securely stores the IDs. We need to have them on file in the event there is an issue. For example, if we have a defaulting bidder, we need to be able to access the ID in the event we need to provide this information to the government seller, or as part of legal proceedings.

I don’t have a mobile phone with a camera. How do I verify my ID?

You can also use a laptop or desktop computer with access to a webcam. If you do not have a webcam, please contact us. We can work with you on getting a copy of your ID.
