A Beginner’s Guide to Verification

Verification! What is it?

Shall we let the beautiful Malia explain it for us? Watch the video below for all the fun details…

Verification on Couchsurfing is the process where you verify your person through Facebook or email and verify your living arrangements with the internet (and a nifty postcard).

If you decide, “Sure when I’m hosting I’d like surfers to have a better piece of mind that I probably live where I say I live, and since I don’t have any friends or references on Couchsurfing yet, this will lend me a little more credibility” then click Verify Me.

There is a one-time fee based on where you live. You pay for that with either a credit card or PayPal. Once you enter your payment information, fill out your address and click HOORAY DONE.

Within a few weeks you’ll receive a postcard with a code on the back. You’ll enter that code and get a green check mark on your profile. Just like a gold star in school.
