Checks
The gateway to ComplyCube's client verification services.
Checks enable you to run various types of verifications against your clients. You can perform the following types of checks:
The checks API allows you to create, update, validate, and retrieve checks. You can retrieve a specific check as well as a list of all your client's checks.
All checks are asynchronous.
