KYC means “Know Your Customer”. It is a process by which FedEx obtains a customer’s identity and address information. This process helps to ensure that the shipment is delivered to the assigned receiver at the time of booking the shipment. The KYC procedure is to be completed by the banks while opening accounts and also periodically update the same.
Below are quick steps to upload your KYC documents online on the FedEx KYC website.
Step 1: Start KYC Submitting Process
To submit a new document, please click on the “Submission of KYC Documents” button.
It is very important that the address mentioned on the KYC document should be the same as that of the delivery address that is declared while scheduling the shipment.
Step 2: Initiation of KYC Submission
To initiate and upload the KYC process, the receiver has to put in the below details on the Authorization tab and then click on the “Generate OTP” button
- FedEx Airway bill, Mobile number, Alternate number, Email id, and Captcha code
Step 3: Receive OTP
You will receive an OTP code at your email address, which will be required to authenticate your KYC Process. You will have to enter the OTP code received in your email on to the KYC web portal to proceed to the next step.
Step 4: Complete KYC Step by Step Wizard
Follow the step-by-step process and complete the KYC upload process from Authorization to submission process.
