    • On a Mobile device 

      1. Clicking the Upload Front of ID button may present you with a screen that automatically captures the image of your ID documents.

        1. Lay your ID one a solid color background and hold your mobile over the device.

        2. You will see some prompts which may ask you to Align or Move Closer so that the device can auto capture the image


Once your mobile is in a good position you will see a countdown.  Try to hold still while the image is auto captured.

  • On Desktop you will need to upload images of your ID documents.

  1. Optional - Proof of Address

Click the ‘No’ option and click upload an approved proof of address document.

When ready click the Submit Image button.

  1. As a regulated entity ErisX is required to ask a number of questions before an account is open.

  • After you have answered all questions click Submit and Continue

Only a few very easy steps left...

  1. Check the boxes to acknowledge and agree to the required Disclosures and Agreements.

  1. Select and answer some security questions.

These will be used to verify your identity when you call our support team.

  1. Lastly, you will be required to enter a “funding password”. A funding password is different then the password used to login to the ErisX account.

This password will be used to perform various actions that we believe require additional security.

Your account will now be sent to our Onboarding team for approval.  

While normally processed immediately, it is possible for this final approval step to take longer when we are processing a large volume of applications. We aim to turn approvals around as quickly as possible.

Our Onboarding Team reviews account applications between Monday and Friday 7am to 7pm Central Time.  

Once approved, you will receive an email letting you know your account is ready to be used. 

Follow the instructions in the email to fund your account.
