To complete the verification process, we may need to reach out on Stripe's behalf for a copy of a government-issued photo ID. 

Stripe is required to collect, verify, and maintain information on the individuals associated with a Stripe account. These requirements come from our regulators and financial partners and are intended to promote transparency and prevent individuals from using complex company structures to hide terrorist financing, money laundering, tax evasion, and other financial crimes.

Sometimes Stripe may ask some individuals to provide additional identity information if they need to or if you have hit a certain number of payouts.
