What you need to verify
You verify at the account level. You can verify 2 types of accounts:
- An individual user account: When your account is verified, all eligible profiles in your account not claimed by someone else are verified.
- Business groups: When the main owner is verified, all eligible profiles in the group are as well. The profiles can't be owned by someone else. Learn more about business groups.
Important: The profiles added to your account must accurately reflect the size of your business. You may be required to provide evidence if your chain size differs from the number of profiles in your account.
Step 1: Make sure you can verify
Important: Uploading a spreadsheet does not send a verification request. Learn how send a request.
You can verify if:

- Duplicate, suspended, or disabled profiles don’t count towards the 10 Business Profile minimum. Understand your profile status.
- Learn how to request verification for individual businesses.
- Your spreadsheet has all the profiles you manage. Don’t leave out any businesses.
