Assay Assured is a Trustmark, rather than a hallmark, it is important as more and more people are buying products online. However your customer may be wary of buying jewellery from an online store, they only see the product after they’ve bought it and they want reassurance that what they’re buying is the real deal. With Assay Assured, your potential customers can see that you are taking an active interest in their confidence and peace of mind with their purchase from you. They have a guarantee that your items are accurately described. Your site has been independently verified and we can provide arbitration if you can’t resolve an issue with your customer. Along with this we have regular testing of underweight items. All of these consumer benefits then in turn benefit you by increasing consumer trust, building brand image and improving your conversion rate.
When we audit your online shop we sample a statistical proportion of individual product descriptions, from across the site, taking into account the number of individual products you carry. This includes a range of the standards of metal from silver through to platinum. We check each one to make sure all of the details are present and correct with regards to the description of items. Once we have completed this process we give you a list of recommendations based on our criteria. As our recommendations are based on a sample of your website so may need to be implemented across as wider range of items.
We use a stepped pricing system as we must determine the risk of Assuring your website. This can be affected by factors such as your membership to trade organisations, if your branded goods come directly from a reputable source. Other factors include the number of hits on your website as this can influence the amount of traffic through the Assay Assured button.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.
