Seal integration manual

FAQ - frequently asked questions to authorized.by

The authorized.by realtime seal shows your customers at a glance that you are a trustworthy, authorized brand partner. Used at both shop and product level, the realtime seal will effectively help you in distinguishing yourself from non-vetted retailers and then have a positive effect on your conversion rate.

Once integrated in a web shop, authorized.by’s realtime seal visualizes the stable relationship between a brand and shop — across all sectors. The seal, a simply understood visual form of approval, is always clearly in sight on a page, but disappears when scrolling on handhelds so as not to block the view of your products or important shop content. Authorization is by our open authorization platform named authorized.by. This platform enables you to fetch verification by your major partner brands and benefit from the boost in trust that comes with official authorization. The search and query function offers you unlimited possibilities of inquiring about authorization and expanding your network. Awarding you authorized brand partner status will increase consumer trust and the conversion rate of your web shop.

Authorization and the realtime seal that comes with it are given to you by your partner brands through the search and query function on our platform. You can ask any number of brands for authorization. And you can incorporate your realtime seal into your web shop straight after registration (which is free).

As a shop operator, you have the option of integrating the real-time seal on the right-hand edge of your shop (sidebar), in the header of your online shop (header), in the footer of your shop (footer), or even directly on the product (content). In addition, you can position the seals at other points and adapt them individually with the help of our integration instructions according to your ideas. We would be happy to support you in the effective integration of the seals.

To make sure your realtime seal is displayed properly, you need an authorized.by profile. If you don’t have one yet, you can register here free of charge. Our integration instructions are a step-by-step guide to incorporating and positioning the seal by using Google Tag Manager, for example, or you can implement it manually in your shop template. With the help of plug-ins, which are additionally provided for common e-shop systems, integration is only a few clicks away.

Yes. You’ll get access to the authorized.by platform straight after registration and e-mail verification, and can request an unlimited number of authorizations from your partner brands. Show potential partners your profile, make new connections through the search and query function, or let other brands find you. Every confirmation you receive from a brand will automatically be shown in your realtime seal and a matching certificate.

Use our “Start for free” button in the header of our website. Select “I am a retailer”, and follow the few steps to registration. Since brand manufacturers also use the platform to source new retailers, we recommend creating a profile and filling it out as far as possible. That way it will be easier to find you, and you will expand your network faster as well. We’ve marked especially important fields by an icon (eye). You can work on your profile as a team, of course, simply by adding other people to it.

Authorization by brands and use of the realtime seal costs nothing for online shops in the FREE version. Added-value features to improve conversion and network expansion are enabled when booking the chargeable STARTER and PREMIUM services and are clearly marked as such. Here is an overview of Price list online shops.

Yes. The realtime seal automatically matches the status of your authorization. Your seal will appear as soon as the first verification appears from your brand partners, and it will update automatically as soon as it’s followed by more authorizations.

A large number of brands and manufacturers manage their product data through authorized.by and present this for their authorized partners to download, e.g., as a CSV or Excel file. Retailers can then decide whether they need to download any further assets than the master data, such as images, documents, and videos, or should fetch the assets singly or in bulk. Through automatic update notifications, marked specially so the updates are clear to see both in the feed and in the product section of your authorized.by profile, you will always know what’s new about a product. The products in your shop will then be up to date and ensure optimal time to market.

In technical development of the realtime seal, major emphasis was placed on avoiding any negative influence on the aspect of loading time, which is so important for online shops. The seal was developed for high performance and is scalable. The contents of the seal are loaded asynchronously from the Amazon cloud (in Frankfurt, Germany) and can effortlessly handle high loads in conjunction with technologies such as a load balancer and the latest caching methods. Leading international companies use AWS Amazon, just like authorized.by.

The realtime seal contains visible, shop-domain-related components and is therefore easy for customers to recognize. The certificates that go with the realtime seals are physically deposited on the authorized.by server with secure SSL encryption, and thus proof against editing or falsification by third parties. All certificates are also verified over the Bitcoin blockchain and can therefore be regarded as fully tamper-proof.

If you have any questions or need assistance in integrating your realtime seal or creating your authorized.by profile, just contact our team. Someone will always be available to help.
