We got this little note today when working through a verification issue:
Anyone have additional context?We’re glad to inform you that your listing is eligible to be verified via a new method we’re exploring: Video Verification.
Video Verification is an experimental method and you’re under no obligation to try it, but we hope that you will (and that you’ll find it quick and convenient.) Video Verification can be completed via a video call with our specialist from either your workplace or your vehicle.
- Workplace - To show us where you get your work done. This will include showing our specialist around your workspace, your business logo, and the tools you use. If you meet customers on your premises we’ll want to see your public space as well.
- Vehicle - To show us how you get to your customers. This will include showing our specialist the license plate of your registered motor vehicle (sorry, no public transit accepted at this time) and your business logo On the vehicle. If you carry tools or other instruments of your trade in your vehicle, that’s ideal.
What’s next? A confirmation that you’d like to be a part of this test group, and the best time to get on a video call with you. We’re happy to entertain requests outside regular work hours too.
Not excited about video verification? If you’d prefer to not take part in our video experiment, please let us know. (We’ll wait to hear back from you before taking any further action.) We’re happy to share other ways in which you can provide us the required information via email, such as photos of your business and confirmation from a company domain.
