You might see “CIP” and “KYC” acronyms when sifting through our documentation, here’s a brief explanation of the terms:
CIP - Customer Identification Program
KYC - Know your Customer
There is a specific Customer type in the API called a "Verified Customer" which requires full CIP/KYC information such as full name, address, ssn, etc. in order to systematically verify the identity of this Customer.
For more information on creating customers, refer to our developer documentation.
