Perform a Transfer Request

As a User of Get Me Known you can transfer ownership of a microchip to a new owner which is great if you just bought a puppy or received a pet for any other reason.

To Receive Ownership of a Microchip you will need to Make a Request and wait for the current owner to login and then approve your request. No need to type in any information about the Pet

To Start Login (https://www.getmeknown.co.za/account/login), or register (https://www.getmeknown.co.za/account/register) if you don't have a account. Then in the Main Menu on your profile page select "Transfer Request".



After you clicked the "Transfer Request" button you will presented by a page that asks for the 15 Digit Microchip Number of the Microchip you want to obtain ownership of. Here you will type the key and if correct you will be redirected to a page where you can review the details of the pet and then start the transfer request.



If the Chip is found you will be presented with the following page, where you can view information about the pet and see any (if the owner uploaded them) the image or pedigree of the pet.


If you then proceed and click "Request a Transfer of Ownership" the request will be sent and you will be presented with a page that will tell you that the request has been sent and you just need to wait for the current owner to accept.



Now you will need to wait for the Current owner of the Pet to Approve your Request. But in the meantime the pet will be listed on your Profile Page with a pending button. If you follow this button you will be able to resent the request if you so wish. But if it's been a long time consider contacting the owner and reminding them.

Approve Transfer

As a User of Get Me Known you can transfer ownership of a microchip to a new owner.

When someones requests a transfer of one of your microchips you will receive a E-mail from us telling you this and when you Login (https://www.getmeknown.co.za/account/login) you will see the request pending next to the record of the Pet.



When you follow this link you will be presented with a page that will list all the transfer requests that are still pending. You can then approve or decline a request, Be Sure to check if the new owner you are approving is really your intented recipient as this cannot be reverted as you will need to request a transfer then from the new owner..



If you ignore a request it will simply be removed but if you approve a request a dialog will be shown that will ask you if you are sure.



After you Confirmed that it is indeed the intended owner; the pet will not be shown as a registered microchip to your account and the new owner will be able to edit,manage and print details just like you did.
