Need to be verified in order to buy

Hello- How does one get a badge or become verified in order to buy? There is a seller who would like all buyers to have a badge but the only badge I see is the FSOT seller badge. I've read this page : http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...ment.php?f=154, but it only says you need to be verified to sell, not buy. I am just now expecting my first baby so I will have items to sell later, but don't really need to be registered as a seller right now. Thanks very much for any help.

You do not need a badge to buy things but you do need it sell.

Correct it is not required to buy but the seller has specified she will only sell to those with an fsoit badge. Sellers have discretion who they sell to.

I have sold on here before, but this is new to me. When did we need 30 post? I just spent half an hour taking photos of maternity things to sell *sigh*

I think it is preference on seller to make sure that it isn't a buyer that isn't part of the rest of this site...

Some have had bad luck with new members that buy and or sell things I think is why some want more presence and verified makes me think paypal. Getting verified via paypal isn't bad as there are some that don't update the address there and then things get sent to bad address or something....

If you don't have to be registered to buy, why do you have to be registered FSOT to post in ISO?
And, I know the seller has the option to sell how they want, but why would it matter if they have the funds go through before they ship? That seems a little silly. Money is money whether you're registered with 30 posts or not.

We are a community first and seller verification provides an additional layer of protection for our members.

Directly from the seller verification page:
"Before you can start selling your items in the Diaper Swappers community, you'll need to first become a verified seller. A verified seller means that you have verified your PayPal account, your first and last name, your home address, and your telephone number with Diaperswappers.com. The process is completely automated and gives customers confidence that they are buying from a trusted source."

Re: Need to be verified in order to buy

I suppose my question may not have been clear. I totally get why you would want people who are selling to be registered. But if I'm not wanting to sell, I'm only looking to BUY something, why must I be a registered "seller"? I would totally get it if there were a qualification for registered buyer, but I'm still confused why you would register to sell if you only want to purchase something from someone.
Sorry, If it sound like I'm being difficult. Totally not trying to. Only very confused by the stipulation.
