To protect users from fraud, there are a few methods of account verification that help buyers avoid questionable sellers. Verification is optional but highly recommended if you want to show that you are serious about being a trustworthy seller.
Currently, we offer two levels of verification:
- Listia Verified This means that the account has been personally verified by Listia's staff, and the account owner is in fact who they claim to be. This verification applies only to accounts that represent organizations and other public-facing entities (Listia's official account is an example), and cannot be automatically earned.
- Verified Account, Level 1 When a user has provided phone verification in addition to connecting with a verified (1) Facebook account, they receive this first level of verification. Phone verification means that the user has successfully given us a valid phone number they have access to.
