  2. Once the VALR homepage launches, traders must turn their focus to the header tab and click on the ‘Get Started’ button located on the top right corner of the screen
  3. Clicking on the ‘Get Started’ button redirects traders to the registration page. On the registration page, traders must input all of the info requested. The info requested relates to one’s full name, email and country of residence. Traders ought to note that it’s also on this registration page that they have to choose their security credentials (password) for all future login purposes. We recommend that traders use strong and secure passwords that aren’t easily breached to protect their funds

*An important thing to note here is that it’s possible for traders to automatically complete these steps by signing up using one’s Google or Facebook account. When traders choose to register their accounts automatically, they will not need to choose any security credentials as the same credentials used for their Google/Facebook accounts will be used at VALR

  1. The next step is to complete the CAPTCHA process to confirm that you aren’t a robot (just saw you know, VALR only accepts human traders)
  2. For traders who manually register their accounts, they are required to confirm their email address before completing the registering process. Confirming one’s email address is simple. Traders simply need to check their mailbox for the VALR verification email. Open the email and click on the verification link to verify the email address. Alternatively, copy the link attached to the email and paste it on your mobile web browser to verify the email address
  3. After verifying your email address, log in to your account using the security credentials you chose. Once you log in to the account, you are instantly asked to input and verify your mobile phone number. Just input your mobile phone number and wait for the SMS code to pop up. Once it does, input the code on the site to verify your phone number
  4. The next step is to confirm your address. Here, you simply need to state where you reside in full
  5. Proceed to add your national identity documents to the site. Here, you are required to send scanned copies of the front as well as the back of your government-issued national ID card
  6. The next step is to go through a simple live video process to confirm that you aren’t impersonating someone else. Note that you will need to allow VALR to access your laptop or smartphone camera
  7. Upon completing the above steps, your account will either be activated instantly if VALR is satisfied with the verification documents or you will be contacted for further steps to activate your account.


As traders can see from the above registration steps, it’s pretty easy to register an account at VALR. Before you start the registration process, you just need to ensure that you have everything you need by your side – your laptop/smartphone, active internet connection, and national identity documents.
