How Do I Upload My ID & Selfie To Complete My Background Check?

The background check is an important part of our onboarding process to ensure the trust and safety of our Wonolo Community. Background checks are facilitated by a third-party partner, Evident.

In some cases, Evident is unable to process your background check with the information you provided. If you’re notified that you need to upload additional information to process your background check, you'll receive an email with the details below:
