Accepted data formats

Identify the IDs, bank codes, registration and tax ID numbers accepted in different countries.

This page is for classic Adyen for Platforms integrations. If you are just starting your implementation, refer to our new integration guide instead.

On this page you'll find accepted formats and examples of data that account holders need to provide.


When collecting information from individuals, make sure that:

  • They do not provide PO boxes as these are not accepted as addresses.
  • They provide a name that matches their photo ID. This is needed in case they have to submit a photo ID.

Individuals associated with organizations

As part of the checks for an organization, Adyen also verifies the identity of all individuals that are associated with the organization. We refer to these individuals as owners, controllers, and signatories. The table below describes the criteria for identifying them, and the minimum required number for each.

Who Criteria Required number of individuals
Owners Individuals who directly or indirectly own 25% or more of the total shares, voting rights or other equity in the organization. Between zero to four. Adyen requires information about all individuals that fit this criterion.

If no one owns 25% or more of the organization, then your user must provide information about a controller.
Controllers Any individuals who exercise ultimate effective control in making decisions for the whole company. If such an individual cannot be identified, then members of senior management must be identified as controllers. At least one. Adyen requires information about all individuals that fit this criterion.

For the United States of America it is required that at least one individual is identified.
Signatories Officers or representatives who legally represent the organization towards Adyen and are authorised to enter a binding agreement with Adyen on behalf of their organization. At least one. All signatories are required to be identified.

Identification numbers

For some countries, account holders are required to provide their national identification number. For others, we highly recommend passing the ID number to to increase the likelihood of passing the checks. If the automatic verification fails, Adyen may require the account holder to provide an additional document.

For Australia

If an account holder is from Australia, they can provide an ID, passport, visa, or driver's license.

When providing a driver's license, we recommend that you provide the issuer state to increase the likelihood of passing the verification.


The following data formats apply to data that you can get from businesses, nonprofits, partnerships, and public companies.

Supported stock exchanges

For businesses that are 100% subsidiaries of companies listed on public stock exchanges or other regulated markets, we require that they provide the stock exchange they are listed in. For example, for parent companies in the US, this means the companies are listed in the New York Stock Exchange, NYSE American, or NASDAQ.

Refer to the complete list of supported stock exchanges.

Bank accounts

Adyen verifies that a bank account exists and that the account holder owns it. We perform the check for every bank account that an account holder adds as a payout method.

When collecting information from the account holder, make sure that:

  • The name of the owner of the bank account matches the name of the account holder.
  • The country where the bank account is in matches the country where the account holder is operating.

Countries with IBAN bank accounts

For countries where an IBAN is available, you can send either:

  • The bank account's IBAN
  • Or a combination of bank code, branch code, and account number

Branch code

In some countries, the bank's branch code may be required. The branch code corresponds to the following values:
