Device Verification


Progressive Leasing requires that all new and returning customers verify their phone number by receiving and clicking an SMS link. This can be accomplished by calling the POST /v1/application/verification endpoint as shown below.

curl --request POST \
     --url \
     --header 'Accept: application/json' \
     --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
     --data '
     "phoneNumber": "5552224321",
     "languagePreference": "en",
     "destinationUrl": "",
     "createdBy": "CommerceAPI"

If deviceVerificationId is returned, then the SMS was successfully sent. The merchant can start polling to see if the customer has completed their verification, using the GET /v1/application/verification endpoint as shown below. Progressive recommends calling our service every 5 seconds for up to 300 seconds.

curl --request GET \
     --url '' \
     --header 'Accept: application/json'

If isDeviceVerified returns True, then the customer is safe to move forward with the application. If isDeviceVerified returns False after 300 seconds, the customer must call Progressive Leasing to continue.
