- September 20, 2007 - A team of British Internet entrepreneurs today launched WeTrust.org. WeTrust.org is a safe shopping search and directory for websites that have secure shopping facilities. The team believes that web owners can increase their popularity and sales by being a member of the WeTrust.org search and directory.
A key reason preventing some visitors from purchasing goods online is not recognising the security features used by sites or not trusting them. By having the WeTrust logo web owners can enable customers who are visiting their website for the first time to feel sufficiently confident to make a purchase.
The WeTrust.org website states that membership of WeTrust provides the following key advantages for web based businesses:
- Increased customer confidence and trust in their sites
- Increased sales
- Increased website popularity
- Exact search of products for the website
- Additionally, web owners will benefit from the WeTrust logo and live electronic certificate provided by the WeTrust.org websites.
WeTrust.org accepts worldwide membership and there is an annual membership fee of GBP 99.00 plus VAT (the web owner can add URL). It is understood that this fee is for administration. Any member of WeTrust.org is automatically added to the WeTrust search at no extra cost.
Andrew Malek the programming engineer at WeTrust.org told me: "This search technology allows shoppers to search only safe and secure sites enabling them to shop with confidence. WeTrust builds the bond of trust between WeTrust members and the visitors to their sites. We are continuously developing further technologies for the WeTrust search and directory".
Abby Heykali, co-founder of WeTrust.org said: "We have identified a gap in the market. When you search on a particular item natural searches on major search engines tend to show news, blogs and Wikipedia at the item at the top of the search results. At WeTrust.org you search on that particular item and you get secure shopping websites only".
WeTrust.org is part of the WeTrust Internet Research Group. WeTrust.org is a safe shopping search and directory for websites that have secure shopping facilities. The WeTrust organisation is based in the United Kingdom.
