Can't get website verified



I am using a Wordpress website and can’t get my site verified. I am using the Brave Payments Verification plugin and have tried verification several times. The site is, and the error always says “channel could not be verified”.

When I went to try to re-verify using the manual method mention here by creating the .well-known folder and brave-payments-verification.txt file manually, I noticed that the Brave verification page now includes a second option for verifying using a DNS record. I followed those instructions in my host’s cPanel and it worked perfectly! So if you are still having trouble, I’d recommend you giving that a try too.


Thanks for the advice, SavingTheCrumbs!

The DNS record verification worked almost immediately!
