Frequently asked questions.

The authorized.by® platform enables brands and manufacturers to authorize trustworthy online business partners by using a realtime seal valid across the board. Giving you more trust and security in digital commerce.

The purpose of our cross-sector seal is to show visitors to the shop within seconds that they have found a trustworthy brand partner. Online shoppers are familiar with online certification and one-click verification of tamper-proof online certificates, so the visual and functional presentation of the seal convincingly prove its authenticity. Since the authorized.by® seal is used across the board in online shops, it will become a familiar sight to customers, which benefits shop customers, authorized online retailers and their brand partners alike.

With authorized.by you actively control the positioning of your brand in digital commerce, as well as strengthening trustworthy business partners and increasing conversion of your products in digital commerce.

Simply look for your business partners on the authorized.by platform and authorize them with a click, individually or automatically. As soon as the online shop has confirmed the authorization, it can incorporate the “Authorized Partner” seal in its web shop. The realtime seal of approval that checks the legitimation to sell your products is linked to tamper-proof certificates, ensuring the trust and security of your end consumers. It can be supplemented by TÜV ShopIdent – verification of the web shop by the respected German inspection authority.

You can also provide your digital commerce partners with your updated product content via the platform. You can manage the content via access rights and monitor its use, which guarantees the consistency of content throughout your authorized retailer network.

To manage your business partner’s request, register via “Start for free” button on the authorized.by platform. You can check and approve the request here – if it is from a partner you trust. You will receive an e-mail confirmation via the platform.

When you have registered via the website, you can search for your online partners on the platform by name or by entering categories. If you would like to authorize the retailer, you can send a mail directly via the platform. This will inform the shop operator about your authorization, which can be accepted with just one click. Register here

An authorized online shop can integrate the “Authorized Partner” seal in its shop directly via plug-ins (or manually). Your brand is displayed in the shop operator’s seal, thereby clearly demonstrating the relationship between your brand and the shop. The shop benefits from increased conversion created by added trust – and you strengthen the image of your brand.

When you book the Start and Premium package, the dashboard of the authorized.by platform gives you valuable key figures on the number and structure of your authorized partners, use of the realtime seal, and update status of the product data used by your retailers. Go to Prices to find out more.

The realtime seal will appear once it has been incorporated into the pages of your partner’s online shop — as a rule, it is put in the right-hand margin of each page. Your digital commerce partners also have a number of different options for displaying the seal at product and shop level.

For online shops the authorization requests and the implementation of the trust seal are free of charge. Further features like the matching tool for finding new brand-dealers, managing the badge content and marketing support by us are premium features which entail costs and are clearly marked in the platform. More information on pricing can be found in the price list.
