Verification Documents Ireland

Please upload the document directly in your SumUp Account at You can find your Account Area in the top right corner of your SumUp Account. Choose “Account” and then click “Documents”.

Here, you can upload your ID documentation to the section "Legal identification". Once uploaded, our team will verify them and get back to you via email.
