Sellers now have the option to require that their show's bidders and giveaway entrants are Whatnot Verified Buyers.
To qualify as a Verified Buyer, you must meet one of the following two qualifications:
- You either need a verified buying history on Whatnot
- If you join a Verified Buyer stream, you will be prompted to submit a government-issued ID for automated verification by our partner Stripe. A review of your ID will take anywhere from 1-3 minutes.
If you want to watch a show that requires Verified Buyers, you can always watch the show without the Verified Buyer designation, you just cannot place a bid/order or enter a giveaway.
