    How unfortunate that they don’t seem to have updated their ownership verification process – until that is improved I won’t be recommending their service to clients.

    Hi Sarah – the verification process is pretty similar to Google Places, Bing Maps, etc., isn’t it? You claim the business and then Foursquare asks you to verify by phone or postcard, I think. Or do I have it wrong?

    There’s no timeline for it. The last attempt at verification we tried took literally months. That’s a long time to expect a business to sit with their hands tied, since most of the features require verification to access.

    Maybe they just added a timeline? If you go into the “Venues” area, they have this on the last tab (about claiming your venue): “This will bring you straight to the claiming process, where you can verify immediately over the phone or within two weeks by mail verification.”
