Onboard Merchants Quickly and Confidently With LegitScript



RiskCheck provides a real-time assessment of merchant risk that includes a risk level, a reason that describes the risk, and a confidence score for the assessment.


KYB Checks

Know Your Business checks offer important insights on data points such as business information, watchlist, adverse media, email address, phone number, and more.

How LegitScript Merchant Onboarding Works

Once you submit the merchant data through the API, we check the data points provided against OneView, LegitScript’s proprietary AI-powered data intelligence platform, including our third-party integrated KYB data. You can access the results in minutes.
