This feature can be used to allow the real owner of a business listing posted in your site to take ownership of that listing and be able to edit it. This process can be monetized.
Listings > Settings > enable
Pages > Add New create a new page and name it Claim listing
Listings > Settings > Claim Listing Page choose the page you've created
Single Page > Quick Actions add the
Claim Listing action.
Claim packages, like regular listing packages, can be created as WooCommerce Products.
Products > Add New, create a new product and set the product type to
Listing Package or
Listing Package Subscription
Use for Claims? setting
General > Packages add the package you created
After a new claim entry has been submitted, you can review it in
WP Admin > Listings > Claim Entries. Clicking on an entry will allow you to approve or decline it, and send an email to notify the user on the claim status.
On Approval, the claimer will become the author of the requested listing, and the purchased package will be applied to the listing.
If you have enabled
Mark claimed listings as verified setting in
Listings > Settings > Claim Listings, then the listing will also become verified at this point.
Once claims are enabled, all listings that don't have a listing package assigned are claimable.
However, in some cases, you may want to assign a package to a listing to give it a better layout and priority, but still keep the listing claimable. In that case, you can edit the package in
Users > Paid Listing Packages, and toggle on the
Payment Details > Is claimable? package setting.
Users can view all the claim requests they've submitted in
User Dashboard > My Listings > View Claim Requests. Additionally, an email confirmation is sent each time a claim status changes.
