Identity verification has always been complex, time-consuming, and expensive for businesses — especially smaller startups that don’t have the budget for verification services or the engineering resources they need to build their own solution.
At Persona, we believe in supporting companies at every stage of growth as well as protecting the individuals who are being verified by them. We want to contribute to a safer online environment where every company has access to affordable identity verification solutions that maintain the safety and transparency of sensitive customer data, and individuals don’t have to worry about the protection of the PII they’ve shared with companies.
This is why we are announcing our free Starter plan, with the goal of bringing transparency and affordability to the identity verification process. This is the first free solution in the industry, allowing companies to easily experience how our solutions work first-hand without upfront commitment or a costly contract. It will enable more organizations to verify users in seconds while protecting users’ PII against fraud and identity theft as well as complying with data privacy regulations like CCPA and GDPR.
What does the free Starter plan include?
Persona’s free plan offers 500 free government ID verifications with optional live selfie checks per month. The solution comes with a full integration suite, including a no-code hosted flow, a drop-in widget that can be integrated with less than 10 lines of code, and mobile SDK. Businesses can configure the user flow to match their brand, reducing friction and visual disruption to maximize customer conversion.
Also, for a limited time, we’re inviting a small select group of Starter plan users to join our first-of-its-kind community academy, where we’ll share self-paced courses and best practices, host group and 1:1 sessions with folks from Persona to offer support and gather feedback, and connect members to industry experts. Sound interesting? Request an invitation to join the Persona community today.
