When you make transactions through OfferUp’s cashless payment system, you may be asked to validate certain personal information.
Our payment processor, Stripe, uses the information you provide to programmatically verify your identity. This is required by regulators and financial partners in order to promote transparency and prevent fraud and financial crimes. Once your data is confirmed, you can start accepting payments immediately.
We take privacy and security very seriously. OfferUp does not keep any of the personal data you provide to Stripe, and Stripe information will never be disclosed to other buyers or sellers on OfferUp. Please only submit this personal information through OfferUp’s secure app or website. For security reasons, we do not accept copies of IDs over email.
