How to become a Verified Buyer

Whatnot Support Whatnot Support

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.

Note: To be eligible for the seller referral bonus, you must have a verified ID on file.
