As most of you probably know from our Udimi Filter Statistics, on average we ban 12 scams per day. At the moment of writing (20 April 2019), we have 20 340 banned users. All these people tried to steal from honest people.
At Udimi we take our user’s safety seriously. In an effort to create further security we are implementing an ID check system, to be performed on sellers before they receive their first payment.
To make this change easy for everybody, there will be three phases:
1. Verification of sellers joined after 1 April 2019
2. Verification of sellers joined in 2019
3. Verification of all other sellers
The verification will be performed by an outsource company and it will cost each seller 3 EUR.
* All current sellers with 10+ sales will get free verification;
* All sellers with verified ID will get special badge on the profile;
* Additional “Only verified IDs” filter will be added to search engine;
* Verified sellers won’t be able to use a pen name
I’ll be happy to hear your thoughts and suggestions before we start the process.
Best, Uncle Dimitry.
We also need payouts in Tether Coin (its like Bitcoin but holds its value at $1 well). And move the Promoted Sellers to the top of the homepage above the stats that block them so much.
And Udimi needs to start a UdimiCoin DigitalCoin and exchange :)
I second that
Or make the Stats at the top of the Homepage into a button that expands into the stats, or put the top 3 promoted sellers at the top of the home page. I have a computer screen and I have to scroll down quite a bit to see promoted sellers on the homepage as it is. I think 80%+ of people that visit the homepage do not see the Promoted Sellers area as it is currently.
Thank you for a great work/development Uncle Dimitry/Udimi Team. I think it will benefit more to people like me who are new on this platform. Great job! ;)
Things is I would call people and require a government Id to approve sellerS. They need to be real people and not a pen-names. If you’ve had to ban this many people it just means you should not have approved them in the first place....
I get it...it’s a tough balancing act...you want my Id, or to call me brining it on. I just love you are taking this step. To me it’s another example of your organization growing into the leadership role you’ve earned.
Extra security measures are always Good Uncle Dimitry!
Currently To get paid though, they need verified : pp or epayment or transferwise now, how much that really changes things i wonder...
And are you making it optional if there is going to be a badge and filter for it ?
And is the Official name on ID will replace all current names for everyone on udimi? this is going to be messy/confusing considering how many ppl use pen names or business names or just usernames ... i think this step not really necessary
And what about Buyers ? we all know the mount of dodgy buyers , they are all over udimi, and sellers having to refund unfairly in many many cases just to avoid bad review, Any plans on regarding this ? ex. no refund policy, bad review appeal, report buyer option ... extra
I agree with you Mark, it's the buyers that need verifying as there are some that bribe sellers in to making refunds. Having said that there are many very good buyers and sellers. I would like to see a no refund policy also.
