User Verification

User Verification ensures that users provide accurate information. When enabled, users will have to provide a valid email address, otherwise they won't be able to list items. Admins can also set up a one-time or recurring verification fee that can be credited, at a later date, to the user's account.

Configuration

Enable, from the Registration & Verification menu (Admin Control Panel -> Settings -> User Settings -> Registration & Verification), User Verification. It will check and validate users according to the information they provide.

Important: When User Verification is disabled, admins can set user status to verified from the Users Management menu (Admin Control Panel -> Users -> Site Users).
