MEMBERSHIP VERIFICATION ON ZIPFORM® 6 STANDARD (DESKTOP) EDITION
Your zipForm® 6 Standard (desktop) edition will include a new membership verification check. If you’re a desktop user, you will be required to connect to the internet once every 90 days beginning Tuesday, June 19
th. An internet connection is required in order to complete the membership verification process. If you have not connected to the internet after 45 days, you will receive a pop-up message inside of zipForm® 6 reminding you to connect to the internet to complete this process. This pop-up is on every day until you connect to the internet or hit the 90-day mark. From that point on, you will be locked out of zipForm® 6 Standard until your membership can be verified. If you have an internet connection, membership verification is completed “behind the scenes.” No additional action is needed by you.
If the National Association of REALTORS® (NRDS) database is unable to verify your membership, you will be prompted with a notification instructing you to contact your Local Association to update your record. zipForm® 6 Professional (online edition) users are already verified each time you log in through www.car.org.
