Registering a User

Step 1: Create a New User

To create a user, you will only need your phone number and password. To start, follow the link or click on the menu in the upper right corner of the website and then click “Get Started”. If your screen is not wide enough, you will see the menu icon in the upper right corner of the screen. Open the menu and click “Get Started” button.

A registration form will open. Enter your phone number and a password of your choice. The password must be 7 to 30 characters long and include at least one lower-case Latin letter, one upper-case Latin letter, numbers, and special symbols.

Click “Register”. You will receive a short message with a security code. Enter the security code in the form. The next page will open automatically.

If you close the application form by accident at this stage, there is no need to worry as your user has already been created. Simply log in using your credentials. On the dashboard, click the “Open an account” button to continue the onboarding process. 

Note: Our system allows you to manage multiple accounts in one dashboard to simplify control over your accounts. Hence, the user you register at this step will be your only way to access all of your accounts.

Step 2: Choose a Business or an Individual Account

After you register the user, the next page will be displayed automatically, giving you the option to choose between creating an individual account or a business account. The business option will be chosen by default. If you would like to jump straight to Onboarding for Individuals, please see the “Onboarding for Individuals” section.

Fill in the necessary information and click “Register.” You will receive a security code at the email address you provided. Enter the code, repeat the login, and enjoy your dashboard. 

Onboarding for a Business Account

Once you have registered a new user, you can start the onboarding process. Open your dashboard. You should see two options to choose from: simple structure and standard structure.
