Merits are sent to individuals by organizations that register with Merit and go through our validation process. Individuals who hold licenses or certifications are not responsible for or able to independently upload those credentials to their Merit profile. Merit operates this way in order to maintain a network of truth and trust, as every merit is sent from a verified organization.
When a new organization joins Merit and issues digital credentials to its members, it will send those credentials to the main email address on file for each individual. The recipients will all receive email notifications that contain links to accept the new merit and create a Merit profile, if they do not already have one.
If you hold a license or certification from an organization that hasn’t joined Merit yet, we encourage you to inform them about the benefits of Merit. They can learn more on our website or contact us to set up a demo.
