My current Certificate expires on the 12th of July 2021 (Today).
I placed my order on the 1st of July 2021 via the Lindersoft Setup Builder Link, thanks to Friedrich.
This was quickly and easy and Sectigo immediately took the money from my Credit Card.
Then the Nightmare started.
They sent me a e-mail with a list of documents to upload.
I uploaded all the documents, they Rejected all of them.
Then they sent me another e-mail telling me I have to do a Face to Face Identification.
I downloaded the Face to Face Identification document, completed all the information.
On the 5th of July 2021 I took all the documents to a local law firm and had everything certified by a Commissioner of Oaths.
Scanned all the documents and uploaded it, it showed Accepted.
But the Nightmare continued.
They then asked if this person was a Chartered Accountant, which she is not.
Then they asked I must verify that she is a Commissioner of Oaths.
I asked and she sent me her certificate that was issued by the Minister for Justice and Consitutional Development of South Africa, I uploaded this document as well.
Due to all these problems I decided to also have the documents certified by the South African Police Service.
On the 10th of July 2021 I went to the local Police Station and had all the documents certified by the Police Officer and uploaded them, it showed as Accepted.
This morning I received a e-mail from Sectigo asking me to verify the Police Officer, now where do they expect me to verify a Police Officer.
I checked on the link where I uploaded all the documents, now all of them shows as Rejected
12 Days later and I am no closer to getting this resolved than on the 1st of July 2021 when I placed my order.
I have been getting my Code Signing Certificates from Comodo/Sectigo every 3 years, the past 12 years, since 2009 with the same Name, Address and Telephone number.
Have you attempted to communicate with Sectigo by chat? Sometimes things go more smoothly if you can communicate with someone directly in addition to the existing process. It just depends on who answers the chat request. Some of the folks are very helpful and quick, and some not so much.
Last renewal they asked me to verify the info in a public government site. I gave them a url (ending in .gob.mx) to a page in the mexican tax service’s site where my company’s name and tax id were visible, and that did it.
Maybe, if one of SA government agencies has your data in a site, you could try that.
