On Studybay, you may get a fancy "Verified Writer" badge if you confirm your identity and education with us! Being verified helps you get more orders (our customers will see the badge next to your bids), and it's a requirement to attain high ranks, to lower your commission!

First thing you need to do to be verified is obtain a scan or picture of your state-issued ID (driving license will do as well!), and undergraduate certificate or higher.
Then make sure you have rating on Studybay (Complete 3 orders to get rated).

When you have the documents ready, follow these simple steps:

1. Open your Settings, then click on Verification.

2. Enter the number of your first document, for example your ID number.
Click "Upload Scan" and choose a file.
Read our Privacy Policy and confirm that you agree with its terms.
Click "Save" to submit a document.

3. Now it's time to upload a second document - remember that we require at least two docs to get you verified.
Click "Add Document", and repeat what you just did in step 2, but for your educational certificate - enter your cert number, choose a file, and upload it.

4. Take a look at your verification page now. If it has two files, with corresponding document numbers listed as "Pending", then you're done! Now it's time to wait for us to review your documents. This will take up to 5 business days.

Congratulations! Now you have a "Verified Writer" badge on your profile!
