TrustedSite offers 8 certifications that businesses can earn by maintaining a high level of safety standards and business integrity. Once they’ve met the requirements, businesses are then able to display TrustedSite trustmarks on their websites. TrustedSite continuously monitors certified sites and rescinds certifications from businesses that fall out of compliance.
When you see TrustedSite trustmarks, click on them to learn details about the website and the certifications it has earned. Each TrustedSite certification is individually earned so that you can get a more transparent view of the website and business before you make a purchase.
Sites that earn the Certified Secure certification have demonstrated that they do not contain security issues like malware, malicious links, or phishing campaigns. TrustedSite actively monitors certified sites for these issues on a continuous basis, so when you see this certification, you can shop confidently knowing your session is secure.
The Verified Business certification shows that there are real people behind the website who you contact for help or questions. TrustedSite independently verifies key business information like phone numbers, email addresses and business addresses to award this certification.
Sites earn the Issue-Free Orders certification by demonstrating a high rate of customer satisfaction. TrustedSite surveys customers of certified sites to collect feedback about their purchasing experience. If fewer than 5% of surveyed customers report issues, sites will earn the certification. Click on TrustedSite trustmarks to see the Issue-Free Orders rate a site has earned.
Sites that offer TrustedSite’s Shopper Identity Protection show they care about the security of customer data. If you make a purchase from a site that has earned this certification, you’ll be covered for up to $100,000 in the event that your identity is compromised within 90 days.¹
When you see that a site has earned the Spam-Free certification, you can be confident that they will respect your inbox. TrustedSite ensures that sites don’t send spam or suspicious emails by signing up for their mailing lists with a unique email address and continuously monitoring the activity. If no issues are detected, sites will earn the certification.
TrustedSite works with respected reviews partners like Trustpilot, ResellerRatings and Verified Reviews to confirm that sites have collected authentic reviews. Look for sites that have earned the Trusted Reviews certification to be confident that the reviews they showcase are the words of real customers.
Sites that earn the Data Protection certification use industry-standard security protocols to encrypt the data they send and receive. When you make a purchase from a site that has earned this certification, rest assured that your personal and financial information is protected.
