Opening an account

When an individual selects to open an account with Folionet, the first step is completing the online profile and questions. Subsequently, follows the online verification process by providing a picture of the passport, and a picture of individual’s signature, all conveniently conducted through a mobile device. The last part of the process will provide several options for account funding. These are:

  1. US Bank Deposits
  2. International Wire Deposits
  3. Stock Transfer

After these steps are completed, the account should be approved immediately. However, in some cases, it may take up to 48 hours as new information may be required for final approval.

If an account is not approved, it may be because the review process concluded that the individual’s profile was not appropriate for an account at Folionet.
