Help regarding: Getting started with Winalist

Back to questions

Why do you ask for proof of address for legal representatives or managers?

As a marketplace collecting payment and acting as trusted third party between hosts and visitors, we need our partners to comply with the KYC (Know Your Customer) procedure. This consists of verifying the identity of partners and ensuring that they are in compliance with the anti-corruption laws in force.

The KYC requires us to collect and maintain information on all our hosts account holders. These requirements come from our regulators and are intended to prevent abuse of the financial system.

The information Winalist is required to collect differs from country to country, and typically includes (but is not limited to):

  • The individual creating the Stripe account
  • The business associated with the Stripe account
  • Any individuals who ultimately own or control that business

The KYC procedure also covers the integrity and probity of clients in the context of the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism, but also in the context of the fight against financial tax fraud and the prevention of identity theft.
