Automatic Craigslist Phone Verification Feature
Fully Automated Phone Verification

CLAD Genius now brings even more power to our users with the amazing PVA Pro feature. Fully integrated into our software to give you absolute control for phone verifying and re-verifying CL accounts while you post. As Craigslist continues to make further changes to various cities and categories of their site for how the posting process works, some areas now require that you phone verify or re-verify accounts during the posting process. From our perspective this can be a blockade to getting ads live along with a huge cost on time and effort. No longer do you have to be concerned with this minor attempt to stop you from posting and take advantage of the PVA Pro feature to create a PVA account whenever it is required to post on Craigslist.

How PVA Pro Works

Using various 3rd party services and forging them together allows you to take advantage of the phone verified account creation process. Whenever CLAD Genius software is asked for a phone verification or to re-verify a CL account, we use a list of phone numbers (purchased separately, phone numbers not included with CLAD Genius) that you import and bind to specific non PVA accounts. Then when Craigslist sends the Authorization Code to the specified phone number it is then forward and processed by a voice recognition company and sent back to CLAD Genius to complete the process.
