There are so many online stores, a lot of consumers can no longer see the wood for the trees. That’s why some years ago trustmarks were being introduced. Retailers can submit their store but they only get approved if they follow certain rules, like showing who’s behind the store, informing the customer about his rights, providing information about returning products bought online, et cetera. Here, on this page you’ll find all the articles we’ve written about such trustmarks.
