I am currently working on pset8 and planning to geta verified certificate once I finish the final project, I don't own a credit card so I might b asking someone else to pay for me using his/her card, just wanna know what additional things or information will I be needing when I apply for a verified certificate?
Using a webcam, you'll take photos of yourself and your government-issued photo ID. Our software will evaluate your photos and verify that you're the person completing the course
So you will need to record a video of yourself and your passport, to verify that you are who you say you are.
