TÜV SÜD’s s@fer shopping certification process provides a thorough and systematic assessment of the performance and security of a retailer’s website. TÜV SÜD’s experts also help identify system vulnerabilities through penetration testing. s@fer shopping certification allows online retailers to display TÜV SÜD’s s@fer shopping mark on their website. This verifies their commitment to provide a satisfying and secure online shopping experience for consumers. s@fer shopping certification is maintained through annual surveillance audits, which also identify areas for further improvements. TÜV SÜD’s s@fer shopping certification has evolved in line with the growth of the industry, broadening its scope to include online retail best practices.
Trust is the foundation of every business transaction. Without trust in the performance and professionalism of the supplier, many clients are reluctant to conduct business transactions via the Internet. As an online supplier, it is in your interest to ensure that your clients feel secure doing business on your website and with your company. TÜV SÜD’s s@fer shopping certification provides you with solid support when dealing with your clients.
Online process assessment
We conduct a process-oriented evaluation of all the important online processes, from information gathering and selecting a product to placing an order. We also evaluate the effectiveness of your website in terms of page structure, navigation structure and client information protection. At the conclusion, we generate a report that includes advice for optimisation, illustrated with screenshots from your website.
Online security check
An online security check provides information about possible defects in the web application and the systems’ configuration. We offer you professional expertise and valuable advice regarding website security and can point you to additional sources of information. Our experts assist you by conducting penetration testing, a simulated real-world attack on your IT infrastructure to uncover potential security risks and system vulnerabilities.
Our experts look behind the scenes on behalf of your online customers. With your collaboration, we retrace the whole process chain: from online ordering to the delivery of the goods and – if applicable – returns. The audit confers a TÜV SÜD certification of transparency and reliability to your online shop.
