BVN verification

This page describes the process for BVN verification

Bank verification number (BVN) is only available for Nigerian customers. This is a means of verifying a customer and can be used for KYC. Customer supplies their BVN and you call our Resolve bvn details endpoint. This service costs N50 per call.

Below is a sample request:

curl --location --request GET 'https://api.flutterwave.com/v3/kyc/bvns/12345678019' \
    --header 'Authorization: Bearer {{SEC_KEY}}'
var request = require('request');
var options = {
  'method': 'POST',
  'url': 'https://rave-api-v2.herokuapp.com/v3/kyc/bvns/12345678019',
  'headers': {
    'Authorization': 'Bearer {{SEC_KEY}}'
  }
};
request(options, function (error, response) { 
  if (error) throw new Error(error);
  console.log(response.body);
});
