I have earned verification as a host, do I have to contribute to Couchsurfing?


Couchsurfing contributions and Verification are independent of one another. 

As a host you can earn three months of free access to our Verification feature. Earned Verification will not impact your Couchsurfing contributions. We are asking for contributions from everyone in the Couchsurfing community. 

If you have previously earned free Verification then this will continue to be applied to your profile. 

Note for existing members: If you decide to postpone signing up, your earned Verification may expire. The earned Verification will not be paused whilst your profile is on hold. 

Support Couchsurfing and Contribute today! 

Free extension due to COVID-19: We understand that you may have earned free Verification just before most countries closed their borders. For this reason we’re giving everyone who earned free verification between January 1, 2020 and May 14, 2020 free verification until September 30, 2020.
