The Ecommerce Europe Association has released the new website for its Ecommerce Europe Trustmark. With the website, the pan-European online retail association wants to give consumers a place where they can read in full what their rights are and what commitments the online retailer has made.
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.
