A fix has been implemented, the backlog is clearing quickly. We're continuing to monitor and any further potential errors.

Unfortunately the issue remains ongoing, customers who signed up at around 17:00 GMT +2 on 14 August 2021 and wanting to verify their account will be unsuccessful. As soon as this is resolved we'll automatically process the backlog.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Our identity provider had planned maintenance earlier this evening which has resulted in slower than normal account verifications for Level 1 accounts in South Africa. We expected this to clear shortly after maintenance ended however this hasn't been the case.

There is no need to re-submit documents, the backlog will be automatically processed soon.
