ID Verification APIs

Bob Wakefield @falcon00

I'm planning an app where ID verification is part of the value prop. I'm running into an issue where all the services I'm pulling up don't have pricing on them and we all know what that means. Does anybody have any suggestions on a low cost provider?

    I've used Blockscore in the past and really liked their API. Pricing is reasonable and transparent. If you're looking for e.g. drivers license ID verification, you'll probably have a tough time finding something that is low cost and that doesn't require a few sales calls.

      Thank you! I found another called Caisson, but it's in Beta and I'm leery about building a service on top of another service that is still in Beta. I've watched one beta I relied on go out of business. That wasn't fun.
