Depending on applicable regulations or business limitations, specific API requests may not be available for your use.

Verify Member Identity

This request triggers the Customer Information Program (CIP) verification for the member specified. If the specified member has already passed the CIP verification, a 303 See Other response will return with the ‘Location’ HTTP header field, which links to ‘Get Member Verification Status’ endpoint. If a prospective member fails this verification you will receive an error message.


Adding the following header field in the request, ‘X-Force-CIP-Failure: true’, no matter whether the member has been verified or not, will always return the verification failure response with the error message. This header flag helps to mimic what happens in the production environment when the member does not pass the CIP verification. Notice that the flag can also be set in the production environment and should be used when you wish to intentionally mark the member unverified.
