# Getting Started
Whether you want to verify the identity of an individual (KYC) or verify the identity of a business (KYB), we make the process beautifully simple and straight forward.
We do have some requirements before you can start using our
/business verification endpoints however.
Fear not, these requirements are pretty straight forward:
Make sure your account is in Production mode: You can verify by signing into your developer dashboard here. If it say's
Sandboxthen you need to request to move to production.
Identify who you want to verify. Are you looking to verify the identity of an individual (KYC) or a business (KYB). Based on your intended use-case, the endpoints required to perform each task is different and has different required fields.
What service do you have access to ? If you are on a Starter Account, you generally will not have access to the
businessverification API's. This does not mean that you will not be able to verify the identities of businesses or individuals. You will have to use our hosted KYC or KYB pages which work just like the API's with the exception of your ability to create your own verification flow and access user data at the point of input.
Enterprise users that are not enabled to use the
business verification API's fall under the same
verifications restrictions as users with a Starter Account.
