If you need a new ID-Pal app link to be sent to you, please contact and our customer service team will assist you.  


Why hasn’t my card been activated following my ID-Pal submission?

Please note that it can take up to 24 hours for your submission to be processed. After 24 hours have elapsed, check to see if you have received a text from One4all requesting a new ID-Pal submission. Please follow the instructions in the text in this case.

If you still have not heard from us after 24 hours, please contact and our customer service team will assist you.


Why can’t I get past the Identity Document or Liveness Test (Selfie)?

While we have over 99.9% device stability sometimes individual devices may have difficulties, which include:

  • Capturing may be difficult with lower-end devices due to camera resolution

  • Dirty or oily camera lenses may make blur/glare hard to avoid.

  • Device damage such as normal ageing, wear and tear, and faulty parts. 

Following these steps, in order, will ensure you can resolve your difficulties in the shortest time possible:

  1. If you already have the ID-Pal app installed on your phone, please delete it.

  2. Restart your device.

  3. Clean your camera lenses on the front and back of your device.

  4. Click on the link via the text you received from One4all to re-install the ID-Pal app.

  5. When capturing your Identity Document/Liveness Test:

    • Avoid overhead lights to reduce glare.

    • Place your ID on a high contrast background (a different, solid colour).

    • If the auto-capture isn’t capturing your document, wait a few seconds and you will be offered a manual capture option.

    • If capturing manually as above, fill as much of the screen with the ID card as possible without cutting it off as this will help with lower resolution cameras.

  6. If the above doesn’t work, please forward the link to a different device, and try again from that device as your problems may be related to device damage.

Why haven’t I received my One4all card activation PIN?

As a result of heavy customer volumes, there can be delays in issuing your PIN. If you completed your submission over 24 hours ago, check that we have not texted you and requested a new ID-Pal submission. Please follow the instructions in the text in this case. Otherwise, please contact and our team will assist.
