Safe.Shop is a necessity

''I think a global trustmark for worldwide safe shopping is a necessity because buying through the internet is really taking off. It will ensure me as a consumer that - independent of what country I buy in - a trustworthy local party will support me when things go wrong with a seller in a country far away and that is a very comforting thought.''

- Martine de Bie
