I am builduing a business to business website, and users are able to sign up with a personal profile and create a business (like linkedin).
I need to verify the following:
- Business Name
- Representative First & Last Name
- Phone Number
Other business sites such as Groupon (wikihow article) verify identity by contacting each user (I'm not familiar if they ask for a business regestrition copy or how do they verify once they contact you).
But this seems slow, expensive and annoying, yet probably an effective way to verifying.
I was thinking of the sms verification code, that way I can takle down Location & Phone number, but there is all sort of way around this...
Is there a more effective way of verifying business/business owners identity and location?
