Earlier this year, as part of our ongoing effort to improve the experience for Envato customers and authors alike, we introduced an identity verification check for new audio authors.
After a successful few months, we’re now ready to roll out Author ID checks to new authors across the other marketplaces!
For the next stage, as with the first, new authors will undertake the ID check process when their first item is approved.
We expect to have new authors across all marketplaces moving through this process by the end of the year.
We’re happy to be working with Jumio for our ID checks - one of the world’s leading end to end ID verification solutions.
We believe that these checks help to protect both authors and customers. Customers can have more confidence when purchasing items, and authors can benefit from knowing that they’re working in a more trustworthy marketplace - this levels the playing field for all authors in the community.
