What type of business is the buySAFE Shopping Guarantee right for?

The buySAFE Shopping Guarantee is designed for online businesses with an ecommerce component that are reputable and reliable, so not all merchants may qualify.

How does the buySAFE Shopping Guarantee benefit my customers?

The buySAFE Shopping Guarantee gives your shoppers peace of mind. They can make their online purchases while feeling less anxious about information security, merchant reliability and getting a good price. After a purchase is made, your buyer will receive an email with a Certificate of Guarantee. This reinforces your brand and increases buyer confidence, thereby reducing costly chargebacks.

How does the buySAFE Shopping Guarantee work?

Here's the beauty of this unique program - you don't have to do anything! If something does go wrong, the customer can file a claim directly on the buySAFE Shopping Guarantee website to take advantage of one or all of these free shopper benefits.

$10,000 Identity Theft Protection
If your identity is stolen or damaged, online or off, you'll have access to recovery services and be reimbursed for expenses up to $10,000 for costs like attorney fees, removing incorrect judgments, and disputing credit reports.

$1,000 Purchase Guarantee
If you do not receive the products or services ordered in accordance with the merchant's terms of service, we'll help to resolve the problem or issue you a refund up to $1,000.

$100 Lowest Price Guarantee
Online prices change all the time. If a merchant lowers the price of an item on their website, we'll refund you the difference, up to $100.

In all three scenarios, the buySAFE Shopping Guarantee compensates the customer, not your business. So not only can the buySAFE Shopping Guarantee help increase your revenue and repeat customers, it will save you time and money by acting as an extension of your Customer Service team.
