Get validated to build consumer confidence in your ecommerce store

We all know there are numerous scams on the web to gather credit card and personal information. For small retailers selling everything from independent DVDs to handmade jewelry, getting validated against consumer fraud is very helpful in making customers feel more confident in buying goods from your web store. By enhancing your online image with a seal of approval, your business will develop a positive attitude with consumers, who are concerned about the validity of critical information on your website.

All agencies that provide verification have guidelines that must be met in order to get their seal of approval. But once you get that seal, it tells potential customers that you have the backing of organizations proven to work for consumer safety and security.

Here are some of the largest and most respected online consumer verification programs. Most offer graphics you can place on your website, that prove your certification:
