We created the 9jaDirect Verified ID process and status to build trust in our community. To help give you more information when you're deciding on business relationship. It connotes that a business listing has been found to render satisfactory business with customers hence, a verified business.
How 9jaDirect Verified ID works
9jaDirect Verified ID connects your 9jaDirect profile with other information about you. As part of 9jaDirect Verified ID, you might be asked to:
1. Take a photo or upload an image of your government-issued ID, such as your driver's license or passport
2. Connect another online profile to your 9jaDirect account, such as a Facebook, Google, or LinkedIn account
3. Upload an 9jaDirect profile photo and provide a phone number and email address
Visit 9jadirect.com to get started at any time.
When you'll need to complete it
Under certain circumstances, you might be required to complete Verified ID. For example, customers can require that businesses listed complete Verified ID before conducting business.
If a customer requires you to complete Verified ID, you'll be directed to complete the 9jaDirect Verified ID process in about 12 hours. If you need to come back later, go to 9jadirect.com and pick up where you left off.
The 9jaDirect Verified ID badge
When you complete 9jaDirect Verified ID, you'll earn a badge on your profile. Many businesses and customers look for this badge when deciding whether to do business with a listed business. Though, it's not an endorsement or guarantee of business identity.
Privacy and encryption
We won't share the government ID or personal details you provide during Verified ID with your customer—they'll only know that you’ve successfully completed the process. And we’ll never post to your Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, or other connected accounts without your permission.
Other ways your ID info is used
Where permitted by applicable law, we may also provide information from your government ID, such as your full name and date of birth, to our service providers to run checks against public records for criminal convictions and business offender registrations. For now, these checks are limited to users outside Nigeria about whom we have adequate identifying information, such as the user’s full name and date of birth. While we believe these checks help us deter fraud and misuse of our services, they don’t guarantee that interactions with people who connects through 9jaDirect will be safe or problem-free.
