Creating an account
The first step for your customers to have a digital account is to create one. This is done proactively by interacting with our APIs.

- Then, you will need to create the corresponding user for the type of account you want to generate. For individual accounts, you will need a USER type user. For business accounts, you will need a COMPANY type user.
- You will need to validate the user's identity through a KYC or KYB process, as appropriate. At Pomelo, we use biometric services, local and international databases, and risk lists to validate the identity of each person and company. Learn more about Identity.
