Locate your identity document and bank card
Any official document that can confirm your identity will work for authorization. It can be your passport, your student or library card, driving license, etc.
Leave the important information, cover the rest
Here is what we will need to see on your bank card: your name, the card's last four digits, its type and the issuing bank. We will be looking for your full name on your ID.

You can make digital copies with your scanner, mobile phone or camera.
Your payment is now authorized!
The process of account authorization is a means of establishing yourself as the actual account owner and the rightful cardholder. Protection of your personal and financial details from any type of fraud, including identity theft, is the main objective of authorization. We can minimize instances of online crime or unauthorized use of your credit card by validating your data.
Account and payment authorization is necessary to make your experience with EvolutionWriters more secure. Once your payment is validated, you will get an additional layer of safety and ensure that no one will be able to access your account without your permission. Validated accounts also receive more attention from us. Please note that we do not store or share your information with 3rd parties.
The credit card you used to pay for the order and your ID (for example, your passport, library card, student card or a driving license) are the necessary documents. Please note that we will only need the pictures or scans of them. We do not require the originals.
Your full name, the type as well as the issuing bank of the card, and its last 4 digits must be visible in the copy of your credit card. To avoid any possible misunderstandings, please hide or black out the CVV code, the expiry date, and the full card number, leaving just the last four digits seen.
Your full name is what we are looking for on your ID document. We ask you to hide all the remaining details.
We will match the information from the documents with that from the payment processor. If everything is correct, we will delete your files immediately.
Since the payment system shares the basic details of any transaction with us (the type and the issuing bank of the credit card, its last 4 digits, the cardholder's full name, his/her billing address, and the current residence), our Risk department is always aware of this information and will use it for validation.
One of our Risk department representatives will make sure that the information from the payment processor corresponds to the details on the pictures of your ID and the credit card. This way, we will be able to see that the payment has been authorized by the actual cardholder. In some cases, other means of authorization may be necessary.
The main thing for us is to be certain the owner of the credit card is aware of transactions on our website. As long as you have the permission, this is OK with us. You can request the necessary documents from the cardholder, but we may also need his contact number for phone authorization.
The information we request is visible to us before you send copies of the documents because the payment processor shares it with us. Authorizaing the credit card and your ID lets us see that it is you who made the payment, not someone who could have stolen your credit card. We report all suspicious transactions to authorities so that the money on the stolen card can remain safe.
Sending us your personal information is absolutely safe for two reasons. First, we do not share it with third parties. Second, we delete it immediately after authorization. You can rest assured that your anonymity and safety are our top priorities and that we are doing everything possible to protect your personal data.
Online purchases and sales always represent a risk, and validating your data allows us to minimize the instances of the wide-spread identity theft and the “card-not-present” fraud. If you suspect that your card information is used by someone else without your permission, you can report such cases to us, and we will get your money back.
Send us copies of your documents by email, fax or file upload in the section Authorization in your account. See the tutorial at the top of the page for more.
