If you're creating certificates for one creator or one business, we recommend setting a default creator. The default creator will get automatically assigned to any new certificates your set up.


4. Set up products for certification

The process below does not apply to NFTs. All NFTs minted through the Verisart Shopify App are automatically issued a Certificate of Authenticity once the NFT is bought.

  • Go to Verisart Shopify App and select products in your store for certification.

  • Go to 'Certificates' tab

If your product has an identified creator or if you want to include or edit certificate details, simply edit/add the certificate.

  • Select certificate you want to edit

  • Click 'Edit' to view certification form

Add a creator

If your products have an identified creator or maker, you must assign their name to your products so it will appear on the certificates.

  • Select a creator from the drop-down. If no creator appears, you must first add one per the instructions in Step 3.

Add more details

The Verisart Shopify App creates basic certificates by automatically populating the certificate with the product information such as product title, image and description.

To give your customers full confidence in the accuracy and authenticity of the certificate and their purchase, we recommend you provide additional details including:

  • Production year

  • Dimensions

  • Edition information (if relevant)

  • Production location

  • Current location

  • Inventory number

Decide when customers receive their certificates using the 'Set claim email trigger':
