To guarantee a higher level of safety and peace of mind in our community, we now show the "Verified" badge on the profiles of sellers who have gone through an identity verification process.
We are always striving to create a more trusted and safe environment for our community. Introducing ID verification is another step in ensuring that, as a prospective pet owner, you can have peace of mind that the users you are interacting with are who they say they are. Equally, the ID verification procedures give responsible breeders the opportunity to distinguish themselves by transparently showing that they have had their ID verified by Camlist.
You should expect the following from a verified user:
They should spend time chatting with you on the app or phone and will arrange a time for you to visit and meet the pet, along with its mother, in the place where they were born and raised.
They should be happy to have more than one meeting to ensure you and the pet are compatible.
They should be happy to answer all of your questions and ask you just as many to make sure their pet is going to a good home.
They should be happy to show you their license if they are breeding and selling pets as a business.
They should provide genuine paperwork/certificates for vaccinations, microchipping, worming, and results for health tests where relevant.
How to identify a user has been verified:
Identifying verified profiles is easy. They should have a "blue tick" alongside their profile picture. And you should also see the word "verified" in their profile.
Here is what the "blue tick" looks like:
Here is the "Verified" badge on a user's profile:
Camlist does NOT in any way endorse sellers who have a "Verified" badge, as this simply means they have verified their identity and nothing more.
You should always make sure to vet sellers by using our rehoming checklists and making payments only on Camlist to enjoy our Buyer Protection program.
