What is the eligibility criteria?

An applicant should meet the following requirements to be eligible:

Product requirements:

However, partners must not charge for verifications.
  • The proposed partner must not have access to the business listings they are verifying.
  • Agencies, SEOs, and resellers are not eligible for this program. 

Legal requirements:

  • The proposed partner must agree to our Terms of Service. This is part of the API signup or CSV submission process.
