You cannot claim your own listing

    Good day

    I’m trying to claim a listing and it’s showing: “You cannot claim your own listing”. What is it that I may be doing wrong?



    Hey, I had that message too, it’s just that you have to create different accounts to test the claiming feature! I created some ”fake accounts” to test features!


    @ianleblanc Thanks for your response.
    I seriously feel the feature should not work that way. The other issue is then, against and by whom are listing verified.

    It works this way by default because claiming a listing means switching the listing author. The Claim Listings extension is often used by websites like Yelp or TripAdvisor where the website admin adds listings for businesses and then contacts them offering to claim a listing for a fee (thus allowing them to edit the listing details, or reply to customer’s messages, etc).
