Opening an account on AAX only takes around 30 seconds. Once you have your account, you will have to verify your identity before you can start trading. For this, you will need a valid proof of address and your government-issued identity document.
Go to https://www.aax.com on your desktop. On the top right of the browser, click ‘Sign Up’. You can sign up using your e-mail as a point of contact, or your phone number.
Enter your e-mail address or phone number, click ‘Send Code’.
Enter the verification code, once you’ve received it, and make up a strong password, consisting of at least 8 characters, 1 digit and 1 letter.
The Referral Code is optional. If you’ve been invited by someone else to join AAX, you can use the code they’ve given you.
Make sure to read and agree to AAX’s Terms of Service.
Verifying your identity
In order to be able to deposit or withdraw funds, and trade, we’ll need to verify your identity. We insist on a thorough Know Your Client (KYC) procedure to protect our user base, for security reasons, and compliance.
Click your name in the top right corner, provided you’re logged in. Under your name, in red, you will see ‘not yet verified’. Click on your name.
Assuming you’re creating an account for your personal use, click ‘Set Up Personal Account’ and follow all the steps. Completing this process on your mobile phone, through the AAX app, is easier. However, if you want to go through the steps on your desktop, make sure you have with you:
- A front and back image of your government-issued identity document
- A clear profile picture
You will soon receive a notification that lets you know if you’ve passed KYC or whether you need to submit specific documentation.
