Hi Zara,


Could you please clarify if your legal name has only a first name? Thank you.

Yes,I donot have last name in my offical documents.

Hi Zara,


In cases like this we would suggest a user to use a formal salutation in the first name field (like Mr., Mrs, Ms.) and the name in the last name field. This would be unlikely to cause issues with adding your bank account. Thank you.

OK,but I saw few post had this same suggestion but many people said salutation did not work for them so, are you sure ? because I am in hurry for verfication and can not afford the further processes that may require days.
Thank you.
