Before starting eKYC

This guide is designed to assist you in smoothly and efficiently integrating ARGOS eKYC into your service. It provides a description of the tasks required at each step of the integration process, along with links to useful resources, to make the entire process easier to understand and follow.

๐Ÿš€ Step 1: Decide on the Product Usage Method

Start by selecting the most ideal ARGOS eKYC solution for your service. There are two main options available:

  1. Liveform ๐ŸŒ: A simple and quick one-stop solution provided by ARGOS. This method is suitable for services that want to minimize technical complexity and comes with all the necessary features for immediate use. A user guide for Liveform is available here.

  2. API Usage ๐Ÿ”—: An option chosen when a more customized user experience is desired. Clients design the user interface themselves and use ARGOS's core process engine. Detailed information on API integration can be found here. Consider your service requirements and technical readiness carefully when choosing between these options.
