Providing my business's online presence as a proof of nature of business

You can provide us with a business website or online sales profile to verify the nature of your business. The website or sales profile provided must:

  • Be fully completed with updated information about your business (we can't accept a website that's under construction)
  • Clearly describe your business activities
  • Outline the type of services or goods you provide to your clients

We may also require proof of domain ownership if, for any reason, can't we’re unable to verify that the website provided belongs to you or your business.

Additionally, you can share more than just your website with us to verify the nature of your business. We accept social profiles, or ecommerce profiles, linking to your business. For example, Facebook Store, LinkedIn, Amazon, eBay, or any other similar platform.

However, we can't accept generic links like,, etc. Please provide a link to your exact business profile, products, or services on the relevant platforms.

A social profile should:

  • Be in the name of your business and not your individual profile
  • Clearly describe your business activities

An ecommerce profile should:

  • Be a profile of your business on the ecommerce platform, with a description of the products or services your business offers
  • Clearly show your business name as a seller, manufacturer, or service provider 

If the website you submit doesn't provide sufficient proof, we may still ask for additional documentation to verify the nature of your business.

We aim to review your documents within 24 hours and we'll let you know if we need any more information. Keep in mind that the documents we can accept depend on the complexity of your company and/or any documents you’ve uploaded previously.
