Currently, there are 3 different ways in which a listing can gain verified status:
WooCommerce > Products, after you've set the product type to either
Listing Subscription, you can enable the
Mark as verified?setting.
With this setting enabled, once the user submits a listing with this package and the payment is confirmed, the submitted listing will get marked as verified.
Mark claimed listings as verifiedin
Listing > Settingsis enabled.
WP Admin > Listings, and going to the
Listings marked as verified will have a verification badge shown next to the listing title in Single Listing Page, in Explore page results, etc. This can help them stand out among other search results.
However, there isn't any special priority given to these listings in search results. To achieve that, you can use the listing priority settings.
