Our Claim Listing addon can make managing a new directory very easy. This plugin will allow you to add a link to the side bar of your listings that let’s a user submit their information requesting to become the owner of the listing (users can claim their business), you will be notified via email of new claims.

You can allow listing claims to be auto verified via email or you have the option to manage new claims from a dedicated backend claim page. From this page you can reject the claim, approve the claim or just delete the claim.

Approving the claim will notify the user and they will then be able to login and edit the listing as desired. Rejecting the claim will also notify the user, deleting the claim sends no notifications. All notifications messages are fully editable.

  1. I’d like to do this similar to the way Google does google places and send a post card with a verification code that they can then input and it verifies them. Can I set it up to do that or at least have it to where there is a pss word or some code that needs to be input to verify?

    • HI,

      you have 2 options. Automatic verification. An email with a verification link is sent to the listing owner and after verification he is authorized.
      Or manual activation, in that case you can require a direct contact, like a phone number to call the owner directly before approving him. Any other solution would have to be custom built.
      Thx

    • Hi, no the claim system can’t be linked to a mandatory payment. It would require a customization…
      Thanks

  2. A mandatory payment feature would be good as free listings would already have basic business details and so claiming a listing for additional exposure should naturally be available at a price. Do you do customization?

    Thanks

    • A business owner may just want to correct a wrong information submitted by a user or change his telephone number. A mandatory payment for that would be seen as an extortion IMHO.
      Upgrade remain as a secondary option.
      No we don’t provide customization services.
      Thx
