Verification gives members piece of mind knowing the people they meet are who they say they are. Members who go through the verification process confirm their name, address and phone number. Once you’ve been verified, you will receive a verification badge on your profile page and any host pages you create. It will also enable to to send unlimited messages to all Chumaround members.

Why should I verify my account?
When a member views your profile, they’ll be able to see a verified badge which indicates you have completed the verification process.
Before a booking can occur, both guests and hosts have the opportunity to review and vet each other. When you add a verified member badge to your account, you will be accepted more as a guest, and receive more booking requests as a host.
As you know, Chumaround is completely free to use. By adding a verified badge to your profile page, you are making a conscious decision to support our community.
How much does verification cost?
We currently offer a One-Year Verified Badge for just $20 or a Lifetime Verification Badge for $60 USD. The one year badge requires a $20 payment each year for the life of the account. The lifetime badge enables you to pay just once and we will re-confirm your badge each year no additional cost on your behalf. No future charges, no subscriptions, no hassle!
Can I get a refund?
The easiest way to request a refund is by filling sending a cancellation request to firstname.lastname@example.org. We offer refunds within 7 days of the purchase date or 30 days of the renewal date for annual subscriptions. Unfortunately, we can not offer refunds for transactions outside of this refund window. Please note that this will remove your verification, as we do not verify profiles without payment.
