Behind the scenes: two to three hundred yuan to find an agent, you can quickly get a blue V
“Exclusive Blue V logo, authoritative official endorsement.” The Weibo Blue V certification page introduces the official authority of the enterprise blue V certification, which can help enterprises to efficiently market and monetize. Many netizens also believe that Weibo accounts with Blue V certification are more authoritative and trustworthy.
In fact, the reporter found that it is not difficult to obtain Weibo Blue V certification. If you don’t want to spend thousands of yuan to buy a finished account, you can find an agent for only two to three hundred yuan and get certified quickly.
The reporter saw on the Weibo certification page that to apply for the enterprise blue V certification, two certification materials are required, one is a business license and the other is an official letter of certification. Among them, the official certification letter has an official template for download. After downloading, it needs to be filled in and stamped with the company’s official seal. This means that if you provide a business license and official seal, you can apply for a blue V.
A business license is a certificate issued to industrial and commercial enterprises and self-employed persons who are permitted to engage in a certain production and business activity. Industrial and commercial enterprises or self-employed persons without a business license are not allowed to open business, and shall not have an official seal.
The reporter learned that many organizations are currently promoting business licenses for self-employed individuals on e-commerce platforms and search websites.

According to the company, the company guarantees 100% pass rate for various qualifications and can entrust individual business licenses.
In addition, the reporter mentioned the engraving of the official seal to a number of shops, but was not asked for a business license, certificate of employment, etc.
Regarding the entire process of handling the blue V account mentioned above, Zhu Lixin analyzed that the act of acting for the business license of individual industrial and commercial households is not illegal and is a normal intermediary agency business, but privately engraving the official seal is illegal.
According to reports, in accordance with Article 25 of the Regulations on Public Security Administration Punishments, if the official seal of the engraving industry violates the administrative regulations and has not caused serious consequences, it disrupts the order of social management and imposes a fine of less than 200 yuan or a warning.
