Hi all. Author ID checks for AudioJungle Authors will be starting soon - this thread has all you need to know about the process.
During September, AudioJungle authors will be required to complete an Author ID check to verify the identity of the account owner. As there are so many authors selling on AudioJungle, checks will be staggered over the first couple of weeks of September.
If you haven’t already completed an ID check and are an Author with Audio content as your primary asset type, you will receive an email notification with more information and a link to access your ID check when your check is available.
Please do not contact Author Support to request an ID check, unless you have not received one by September 15.
We previously announced the introduction of Author ID here when the process began for new Envato Author accounts. Since then we’ve rolled out ID checks to all ThemeForest authors and CodeCanyon authors in late 2021, with VideoHive authors and GraphicRiver authors following in early 2022. We are now including current AudioJungle authors in this process.
An Author ID check confirms the identities of our authors, requiring photo ID documents and a photo (selfie) of the account owner. This provides a trusted environment for our customers and authors to conduct business, and maintain the success of our community.
We work with Jumio to conduct these ID checks - one of the world’s leading end-to-end ID verification solutions. Your privacy and security is our highest priority, and we use multiple safeguards (technical, procedural, and physical) to ensure the safety and integrity of your data
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.
For more information, please see our Help Centre article on Author ID Checks - we’ll be keeping this up to date with answers to all frequently-asked questions about the process.
Many authors have already successfully completed an Author ID check. If you have already received confirmation from Envato that your account is verified, you won’t need to complete a new check.
Yes - you will receive a separate check for each of your accounts and will need to verify each one individually.
