Verify your identity

After 2FA is complete, Stripe will prompt you to verify your identity. If, after a few attempts, you're unable to enter details that match your account, you'll be prompted to check with Medely to confirm your details.

The error message reads:


One of the fields didn’t match the information we received from Medely. You can try again, or check that your information with Medely is up to date.

If you receive this message, please contact Medely's Customer Success team using the chat icon in your Medely account to verify your information.
