PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LegitScript, the leader in merchant and product certification and monitoring in the e-commerce and payment sectors, has launched a new program to certify the websites of dietary supplement sellers. Starting today, US manufacturers, resellers, and affiliates can apply through LegitScript to certify that their websites have been reviewed for problematic products, ingredients, and marketing claims.
LegitScript’s CEO, John Horton, said Supplement Website Certification is a valuable service in a high-risk industry that frequently faces regulatory scrutiny for products that are substandard or marketed in a way prohibited by the FDA and FTC. “With thousands of new supplements introduced each year, consumers want to know who they can trust,” Horton said. “The LegitScript seal not only helps earn the trust of consumers, but it gives advertising platforms, e-commerce companies, and payment processors confidence that the seller’s website has been reviewed for regulatory problems by a trusted independent organization.”
Because the dietary supplement industry is heavily regulated, many sellers face unexpected barriers when trying to advertise online, create an e-commerce storefront, or obtain a merchant account to process payments. With LegitScript Certification, supplement sellers can demonstrate an upfront commitment to compliance to companies that might otherwise deny their business.
Sellers with LegitScript-certified websites who also conduct business through third-party e-commerce platforms qualify for assistance with their e-commerce product listings. As an add-on service, LegitScript will review product listings and provide recommendations to help reduce the risk of their e-commerce stores being suspended.
As the leading third-party certification expert in complex and high-risk healthcare sectors, LegitScript works closely with regulatory authorities, credit card companies, major search engines, and e-commerce platforms worldwide, including Visa, Google, Bing, Facebook, and Amazon.
