Force users to verify their identity before posting any listings.
Marketplacekit is a perfect platform for store owners, service providers, buyers, and sellers. Marketplacekit encourages everyone to use their original emails and contact info to reduce the chances of fraud. Fraudulent sellers will mean buyers may not receive their orders and request a charge-back. Keeping this in mind, Marketplacekit comes with a pre-installed add-on "User Verification".
1. Prevent from online fraud
Every day, we hear news about people being scammed or robbed online due to online fraud or scams. To avoid this, it's more important than ever for an e-commerce business to verify customer identities. User verification lessens the chances of online fraud by blocking access and permissions to the people who intend to scam other users.
2. Reduce Shipping Errors
User verification makes your shipping operation more accurate and efficient. By verifying a customer's shipping address, you eliminate sending orders to the wrong place, which causes unnecessary delays and angry customers.
Use of user verification ensures customers receive packages at the right address while reducing shipping costs and time spent on customer support inquiries.
3. Make Internet Transactions Safer
With more and more customers using the internet for buying anything, it's more important than ever to provide solutions to identify and protect users.
User verification solutions can accurately identify each user for secure and trusted web transactions.
4. Easy Implementation of Compliance Requirements
Whether you need to verify the authenticity of the customer's identity or comply with growing state and federal regulations, user verification is an important step in the process, allowing you to cover your bases, while preventing potential lawsuits.
Who should use this addon?
This addon is for those who value legitimate users using their product. User verification enables the marketplace owner who doesn't want frauds and scammers creeping on their website.
User identity verification lets the marketplace owner deal with the members who intend on using stolen cards of fake identities in your marketplace. You can also use user verification to let the genuine store owners and buyers do business through your site and reduce the chances of fraud and scams.
Why use this?
Sometimes before allowing members to start trading on a marketplace, you need to verify their identity to reduce the chances of fraud. Fraudulent buyers can get your Stripe account canceled due to charge-backs/stolen credit cards. Fraudulent sellers will mean buyers may not receive their orders and request a charge-back.
Confirming the identity or the user is important upon login to help prevent criminal attacks, account takeovers, etc. for malicious activities.
User verification can be implemented upon login or sign up to the service and when a user signs up, they will be prompted to verify their identity before posting anything.
How it works
Marketplacekit offers an add-on called "User Verification" to all of its customers for free. This add-on lets the marketplace owner choose whether to make the email confirmation a compulsion. Along with email confirmation, the marketplace owner can also enable identity verification where only the users whose identity has been verified, can use a certain feature.
User verification can be enabled from the addons panel "yoursite.com/panel/addons". Once enabled, only the users who have verified their emails will be able to post or browse listings on your site.
You can further add restrictions for users with identity verification. Go to "/panel/settings". There, you can set restrictions to who can browse, post and buy listing.
