because listia only gets paid from the websites and companies that advertise on their site.. if they require you to verify with facebook, then they are automatically always making money off you. part of the scam

You can only be telephone verified if you live in the USA or Canada, another example of Listia's xenophobia. Listia is an advertising partner with Facebook, hence the Facebook verification. But none of the verifications offer ANY protection. If like me you don't use Facebook, create an account on Facebook, verify, and then disable the Facebook account (keeping in mind that Facebook will not delete the account you created, even if you ask them to).

You dont have to persay, but 97.5% of the global population ages 12-65 have a facebook account. So since nearly everyone on earth has an account, they ask that you connect it because it helps prove you are who you say

You dont have to join facebook,some members like to see as many badges they can, but not all, if you verify your bank and phone usually thats enough. There are many members here that have huge feedback numbers and never did facebook or twitter but did bank and phone and if you a new member at least do the 2 i mentioned and ans any questions in your auctions and complete a few with positive results and people wont care about fb and twitter. Hope this helps its not as good as it was when i joined, they change rules without notice and the credit value has dropped a bit last 2 months.

tish p You don't have to join facebook in order to join Listia.You can go to Listia.com and follow the prompts.You want to get verified so longtime users of the site will trust you and your auctions.You don't get a badge when you re verified,what verification does is guarantee the seller the winning credits that are bid,It also lets the seller know tht the mailing address belongs to a certified member and not a scammer.In fact facebook people with no verifications are not trusted and bids on their sites are low if any at all.Hope this helps.

More questions about Listia

How much money does Listia make stealing from their members? I bid on an item and right before I win, a brand new fake account with no history bids and wins to stop me from winning. How can I report that How do I get Listia to re-set my account so that I can begin setting up my sell pages in time for all the fall holidays? Help! when you guys change over to ink protocol(xnk) will 27,500,000 credits be worth 10,000 coins? that is my question Unfair! I got a permanent ban from Listia and was given a list of reasons for which anybody might get banned but for which was I specifically banned? yes, why every day is waiting time for selling credits increasing. There is no way, why this would go on, unless Listia is putting their sales ahead of everyone else. Is there any other explanation??? If I have received shipping addresses for items, aren't I supposed to receive the money for shipping (from the seller that I have said it mandatory) first before I send anything out? I finlally after jumping trough all the hoops got access to be on the list to sell my credits. Now it is literally 3 months later and I am still looking to sell the same 317000 credits only know due to the rampant inflation in your site, those are worth a full third less. When can I post these credits for sale? I'm going to seak legal advice on how you changed the value of a credit-Years ago I really liked Listia and have met a lot of nice people and some are even friends now-But what Listia has done is WRONG when it comes to a credits value-Years ago a credit was not that far off from being a dollar-But now its only worth pennies-And someone from Listia sent me back a email saying the value of a credit now days is determind on what others sell there credits for-This is a bunch of BULL -HIT Because years ago you never had this of people being able to sell there credits-And I for one DO NOT WANT IT THIS WAY-and if I started a poll I bet 99 % of others would not want it-Because the ones who are going to sell there credits cheap are the ones leaving Listia And I cant blame them-Has ANYONE from listia took a look at the complaint boards and the reviews and scores-Listia USED TO BE up near the top--What To Heck Happened-And WHY TO -ll did you ever change it-YES---I'm upset and mad over this-I have LOST millions of credits and items from not knowing how much a credit had dropted in time-REFUND me We Listia sellers SHOULD HAVE BEEN INFORMED about such a drop in a credits value-And I did not want to join your stock market---LISTIA is and will continue to go down hill if this continues-And I will be looking for help Listia banned my account for funneling credits. What is that. I want my account back.
