If you are uploading a driver’s license or identity card, they may request an image of both the front and back of your ID. In order to make this as easy and secure as possible, the email link will direct you straight to your Stripe dashboard, which will have a notification in the upper right of the screen. The whole process can be performed within the dashboard and you can even use your webcam.
