As OpenSea is primarily a self-serve, peer-to-peer marketplace. That means anyone can create and sell an NFT!
At the same time, our user safety team actively monitors the platform, approves collections and removes malicious content as soon it’s discovered. This ensures OpenSea's community remains vibrant while upholding our Terms of Service.
What is collection safelisting?
All collections on OpenSea are discoverable by default, but collections that have been "safelisted" have been approved by our user safety team.
If a collection has not been safelisted by our user safety team, potential buyers will be asked to click two checkboxes confirming they agree to OpenSea’s Terms of Service and acknowledge that OpenSea hasn’t checked the item.
An unsafelisted NFT (one that hasn't been reviewed by our user safety team yet) will show a yellow warning box during checkout.
Safelisting is separate from blue checkmark verification. Collections become eligible for safelisting after making their first sale.
Collection owners are advised to be proactive by making sure all social links and relevant logos are added in the collection editor.
