Deposits

Allow deposit without compliance approval?

This setting allows up to maximum amount customers are allowed to deposit without compliance approval.

Once selected, you will be prompted to insert the max combined deposit amount without the customer being approved by compliance.

Once the limitation has been surpassed, the customer will not be able to make any additional deposits until such a time that compliance has approved the customer’s account.

Allow Parked Deposits

This setting will allow parked deposits. Parked deposits is a smart feature that helps the company work according to legislation which says you are not allowed to perform business relationship without compliance.

If selected, it simply collects the client payment details and waits for him to finish compliance before it sends it to the payment service provider.

Once compliance is approved a window will popup on the compliance screen asking to approve funding of the account- this can only happen when the customer’s compliance status has been marked as Approved.

If a customer has a parked deposit, it will be shown as an alert on the top of the profile section of the customer’s profile. If a client inserted a second and a third deposit prior to the approval it will be added to the amount and will display several popups one after the other respectively.

If a customer has a parked deposit, it will be shown as an alert on the top of the profile section of the customer’s profile as well as on the Crossings Profile Deposit Method’s Widget.

The compliance module allows connections via APIs to external DB checks. The list of providers are constantly being updated with new integrations. Selecting this option, allows external database checks as part of ongoing AML and KYC requirements.

Once selected, you will be prompted to select your provider from the list provided, then to provide your username and password (of the third-party provider) to connect.

Other functions include;

  • removing a connected provider
  • adding additional providers
  • requesting that a provider be integrated / added if not already on the list of integrated providers.

Refer to the Compliance Profile Compliance alerts section.

  1. PEP – Politically Exposed Person
  2. SIP – Special Interest Person
  3. RCA – Relatives and Close Associates
  4. US Citizen Alert

Alerts will be displayed on the customer’s compliance profile when either the customer has been flagged as a PEP, SIP, US or RCA.

The Origin of these alerts are either provided from the AML DB query or manually inserted by the client on the registration form or manually set in the compliance module by the compliance officer.

This notification is internal only and will show on the designated monitoring of transaction screen, only after which you are able to use the filter function on the compliance lead table to display all customers that are either PEP, SIP or RCA.

Once a client was spotted the main profile page will turn its color and a red stripe alert will show.

If a compliance call has not been made, and a compliance or back office user tries to approve or change the compliance status to “Approved”, a system notice will be generated reminding the agent that the compliance has yet to be made.

Making a Compliance Call

To make a compliance call, click on any of the telephone numbers listed on “Compliance Call” widget on the customer’s compliance profile page. The widget will change into a dialer.

After a call has been made, a slider will become available on the widget where the agent can active to confirm that the compliance call has been made. Even if the agent closes the browser and comes back at another point in time, the slider will still be available to be marked as compliance call completed.

Records of all compliance calls will be stored in the customer profile under telephone recordings, customer logs and listed as an feed event. See the customer profile documentations for more details.

Skip Compliance Call / Mark as complete

This setting controls whether the client’s Account will be automatically set to “Read Only” on his trading account until compliance changes the customer’s “Compliance Status” to “Approved”.
