Where does my creator name appear?
Your creator name will appear on your NFT under the 'Properties' section on OpenSea and on the Certificate of Authenticity.
Why do I need to add a verified creator?
Verisart sets high standards for creators and we take the protection of creators and their identity very seriously.
Before you can mint NFTs or create Certificates of Authenticity, you will need to verify your identity. If you are minting on behalf of a creator, you'll need to request their authorization by sending a one-time request from your account.
When are verified creators optional?
If your Shopify product is not NFT and does not have an identified creator or maker, you can skip this step.
How can I verify myself as a creator?
For individual creators and businesses
If you're an individual creator, please follow these steps:
Go to settings
Click "View Creators" and then "Manage"
You'll be redirected to Verisart.com. If you have any pending creators, you can complete the set up, otherwise click "Add Creator"
This brings up the Add New Creator form.
Complete the form including your identity verification. If your details match, then you're all set and ready to go.
If your details don't match, for example, if your legal name is different from the creator name you use publicly, then we need to manually approve you. This normally takes a few hours, but it may take a bit longer over a weekend or during busy times. We'll email you when the review is done or if we need more information.
If you're in a hurry to get approved, chat with us at the Help Center.
Even if we're still reviewing your details, you can start creating certificates.
For businesses who represent creators
If you're a business who represents creators, you'll need to subscribe to one of our Business plans first.
Verisart allows you to request permission from creators to issues Certificates of Authenticity on their behalf.
Once you've subscribed to the Business Plan through Shopify, go to the Settings tab
Click "Manage Creators"
You'll be redirected to Verisart.com. Select Add Creator > Represented Creator
The first time you add a Represented Creator, you'll be asked to verify your identity and provide your business details. We review these before allowing you to contact creators.
An owner or senior manager from the business should complete identity verification.
Complete the details for the creator you want to represent (and sell products for in your store).
You'll see a message that says we're reviewing your details. This normally takes a few hours, but may take up to 2 business days during busy times.
Once completed, your account is approved; you can send requests to creators and won't be asked again to verify your details.
