Adding a creator you represent is only available on our Business plan.
When you add a creator you represent, you will need to request their authorization before you can create certificates of authenticity on their behalf.
Why do I need to ask for authorization?
At Verisart we think it’s vital to protect creators and their identity. We only allow verified artists and authorized third parties to create Certificates of Authenticity. By asking the artist, we're making sure they know who is creating their certificates.
You will only need to request authorization once for each artist. Once authorization is granted each certificate will include the artist's digital signature.
1. Go to Creators
Log into your account and go to the 'Creators' tab
To add a creator you represent, select "Add Creator > Represented creator"
2. Verify your business (for new accounts only)
Skip straight to step 3 if you already have a verified business account
If this is the first time you're adding a creator, you'll need to verify your identity and your business
An owner or senior manager should complete identity verification
We'll review the details you submit and approve your account
This process normally takes a few hours, but may take up to 2 business days during busy times
Once you've completed this process, you won't be asked again
Even if your details need to be reviewed, you can still add creators and request authorizations
We'll send out the authorization requests automatically when you're account is approved
3. Add a new artist or creator
Open the 'Artist or Creator' panel
Start by searching for the creator you want to represent
If you can't find them select 'Add New'
Add the creator's signature (optional)
If you provide a signature, the creator will be asked to review it and they may choose to replace it
If you don't provide a signature, the creator will be asked to provide one
4. Request authorization
Enter the creator's email address to send them an authorization request
If you add a phone number, they will receive a text message about the request
You can add an optional note that the creator will see with the request
The artist will receive an email asking them to review your request. Learn more about how this looks from the creator's side.
5. Remind the creator to approve your request
Once the request has been sent, you'll need to wait for the creator to approve it
You can view pending requests in the "Creators" tab
Click "Resend" to resend the authorization request to the creator
6. Keep track of creators you represent
The Creators tab shows you an overview of the creators you represent.
