- Since all Publisher access is email based what is the best way to have multiple independent teams access the portal? I don’t want my team being the only one able to access it even though we are the most technical people that would be involved with Brave Publisher process.
I think this depends on your mail provider. At Brave we have group accounts that many people can access such as firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com. So if you set up your account with a mailing list it seems like that might be a straight forward option to share your login links with the company.
- We haven’t set up Uphold so don’t know how that works but will anyone with access to Brave Publisher portal also have access to funds in Uphold? We don’t care about earning BAT, just being verified. (BTW I think the mandatory Uphold account is f***ing stupid. Why should we have to go through a centralized provider instead of just getting it straight to an ETH address but that’s separate issue)
This has been a source of confusion - we’ve not communicated it well both internally and externally. If your website / channel has been verified on creators.brave.com you will show as verified in the Browser.
It’s going to get a little more complicated in October when we release the user wallets in the browser, these allow you to connect your Uphold Wallet to receive Ad Earnings and withdraw them. In order for these users to tip your website then you would need to be KYC. Users with a custodial/managed wallet will still be able to tip you.
If you don’t care about earning BAT then it’s fine to simply verify your site, but we would like everyone to be able to monetize their content.
@nikola_j regarding your question - You can choose whatever deposit currency you wish to have by selecting a default currency on the publishers dashboard. However, be aware any non-BAT values will have a small exchange rate fee. We recommend keeping your default currency in BAT and then you can covert yourself on the Uphold website. Once on the website you can also move it to any ECR20 wallet you want.
While you can register your own Uphold account and complete the KYC process we don’t recommend it. Typically it is your companies account which completes the KYC process. However that process can be tedious if publicly traded.
- If we were to change emails for our publisher account to be more/less open to other teams, are there any disadvantages to changing the account associated with our channels? Do we lose any BAT subscriptions people have already given us? Is there some kind of Brave SEO penalty or something? Any other issues we might come across?
By change email I mean, sign up for a new Brave Publisher account under a new email and redo all verifications since we can’t update an email.
You can change your email address at any time No loss of BAT or anything. You don’t have to sign up for a new email, when you’re in the dashboard you can click “Edit Contact Information” and enter a new email address these.
