Thanks for your question and apologies for delay in response.
First and foremost, we'd like to inform you that your profile is verified and is active on our website which implies that your email verification has been done.
However, there may be many reasons why you are not able to post proper responses to the inquiries.
There are two main reasons why you may not have received a response to your inquiries or emails.
1. As a free member, you're allowed to send one inquiry per week. However, you have to understand that the buyer's inbox is usually flooded with seller emails, often with very compelling and competitive target prices. In order to further your sales pitch, you must have full contact details of the buyer to be able to formally introduce yourself over phone or if possible, by visiting them. Since free members on the website do not get contact details of the buyers, often the inquiries or emails sent to buyers are left unattended. Please note that as a seller, you are a part of the pool from which the buyer picks the best one. To stand out, strong communication is the key. This is perhaps the most realistic reason why you aren't getting any responses to your emails or inquiries.
2. As a Gold member, you're allowed up to 3000 inquiries in a month. Having the opportunity to send so many inquiries obviously increases your chances for a positive response from the buyer. Additionally, as a paid member you have certain privileges like priority listing in the search results page. As a Gold member, all inquiries sent by you through our website also generate an auto-response from our end, mentioning the buyer's contact details. You can use this information to contact the buyer immediately and ensure that the quotation or inquiry has been received. Sometimes, emails go to spam folder and the buyer remains unaware of your offer. Additionally, it is important to personalize your sales pitch and helps in establishing trust between the buyer and the seller.

Hope this answers your question. Good luck.
