Grosik is a financial institution. In order to combat identity fraud and money laundering we need to know our clients.

When you sign up for an account we will make some basic checks of your identity. Sometimes it’s not possible to retrieve enough information electronically to complete verification and that is when we will ask you for more information.

If we are unable to verify you electronically you will still be able to log into your account and start sending money, but you will have a reduced overall sending limit and associated debit card limit until you are verified.

Any electronic checks we make will not affect your credit rating.
We will only request documentation for verification purposes if we were unable to verify your identity electronically when you registered.

If we need more information we will send a message to your Grosik account inbox.

In order to complete verification we will ask you for:
  • Proof of identity- such as a current passport, full driver’s license photo card or a national identity photo card.
  • Proof of address- dated within the past 3 months this can be a utility bill (excl. mobile, internet and insurance), bank statement or government issued document.


Keeping your personal information safe is very important to us. Documents will be submitted from the dedicated “Verify Area” of your Grosik account and then checked by our sign up team. Once verified you will receive a notification and your sending limit will increase. If our sign up team need anything else to complete verification we will send you a message.

Please do not email documents to our sign up team. If you are experiencing difficulty uploading documents via the Verify area, please get in touch.

Phishing attacks and identity theft are becoming more common, so it is vital to guarantee the integrity of your personal data and ensure that you are who you say you are when you transact with us. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) provides an additional layer of security to your Grosik account. It requires two successive factors of authentication:
- ‘something you know’ such as your Grosik client ID and password, and
- ‘something you have’ such as your mobile device.
  1. Log into your Grosik account, and go to “settings” under your user name at the top right of the screen.
  2. Click on “2FA” (Two factor authentication)
  3. The slider will turn green.


What’s next?

Next time you log in, we’ll send either a Push Notification to your mobile via the app or an SMS containing a validation code which you will be prompted to enter. If you don’t have Push Notifications enabled on your mobile, we’ll send you an SMS.

Push Notification is the easiest way to validate your details, simply enter your login credentials, press “Send Push” and you’ll instantly get a notification on your mobile device. Press “Accept” and you’re logged in. SMS works in a similar way. On receipt, enter the validation code when prompted. In order to use Push notification you must first have validated your mobile device.

Authentication codes are valid for five minutes and the timer starts from when the code is generated, not from when it reaches your phone. If the code times out you will need to repeat the process.
  1. Log into your Grosik account, and go to “settings” under your user name at the top right of the screen.
  2. If 2FA is activated the slider will be green. Click on “2FA”.
  3. The slider will turn grey.

“Refer a Friend” is a reward programme that credits a £5 bonus to your Grosik account, each time a friend you have referred signs up successfully and sends a transfer with a value of at least £100. The Refer a Friend bonus is currently only payable in GBP.
Log into your Grosik account and go to “Refer a Friend” through the menu on the left hand side. Once there, you have several ways to invite your friends to sign up:

  1. Copy the link displayed on your Refer a Friend page, and paste it onto your social media. Anyone who clicks on that link and signs up will be recorded as being referred by you.
  2. Send an email - click on the icon and this will open a pop up where you can enter your friend’s name and email address. Click Send and your friend will receive an email with a link to sign up.

Once completed your friend will show as “Invited” on the Refer a Friend screen.
The Refer a Friend bonus is currently only payable in GBP.

Your friend must sign up using the link they have received from you. Once successfully registered they must then make a one off transfer of at least £100 for the £5 bonus to be applied to your Grosik account. You can save up your bonuses to use as partial or full payment of your own transfers.

You will see which friends have signed up on your Refer A Friend screen- their status will change from invited to Active. Once they make an eligible transfer, £5 will be applied and this will show against the referral details and on your referral balance.

Note: If your friend does not sign up using the link provided, we are unable to associate them to you as a referral and you may not be awarded any bonus.
You can save up your bonuses or use them one at a time as partial or full payment for your transfers through Grosik. When you make a transfer request the referral balance left to redeem will display at the last step of the process, and you will be able to choose how much of the balance you wish to use.

Refer a Friend bonuses cannot be redeemed for cash and are only payable in GBP.
