How to take the perfect selfie

What's a selfie?

It's a photograph you take of yourself, and everyone seems to want to take the perfect selfie!

The perfect Coinmama selfie starts with three things:

  1. Your ID
  2. A piece of paper on which you’ve handwritten “Coinmama” and today’s date (DD/MM/YYYY)
  3. You!

Now you just need to take a photo of all three things together.

A few notes:

  • We need to be able to read the information on your ID and on the piece of paper
  • Make sure the whole date is written, including the year
  • None of the text on the ID should be obstructed
  • We need to see your entire face in the photo
  • You have to hold both the ID and paper yourself
  • The photo has to be sharp


Here are some tips to make it work:

  • Webcams sometimes take low-quality pictures, so grab your smartphone for this one!
  • Take the photo in a well-lit room or in natural lighting
  • Hold the ID at its corner to make sure you’re not covering any of the information written on it
  • Write “Coinmama” and the date at the center of a full sheet of paper - that way, your ID won't block it
  • You may want to try using the self-timer feature on your smartphone
  • Alternatively, you can always recruit a friend to take the photo


PS: Smiling is allowed ;)
