If you decline, you will remain on your current package, and will not be able to onboard more profiles, but your existing profiles will remain and you will be able to access their data.

This type of link is called a "Deeplink" as it is unique for each customer and will direct them to the onboarding system for uploading of documents and the registration process.

My customer did not get a deeplink, what do I do?

If your customer has not received a deeplink, please ask the Administrator to resend it via email or some other secure channel. If the problem persists, please get in touch with us here.

The Customer's link isn't working?

The deeplink only expires after submission or after 21 days. If your customer's deeplink has expired and you need to generate a new link, you can ask your Administrator to re-send them the link. If that doesn't work either, please reach out to us here.

The browser / tab closed during the process?
