The team at AuthenticatePro.com Inc. is solving a widespread problem that costs online retailers $461 billion per year.
Research shows that counterfeit items cause major headaches for online retailers, including Amazon and eBay. While these online platforms are successful, they also hemorrhage money due to counterfeit items. For sellers, the hassle and guesswork that goes into confirming whether or not items are authentic can be too great of an obstacle, and buyers are often left to work through returns if they suspect an item to be counterfeit.
In 2008, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) estimated the worth of counterfeit goods to be at $650 billion in 2013, the Department of Homeland Security seized $1.7 billion in counterfeit goods at U.S. borders.
Authenticate Pro, Inc. knowledgeable experts do thorough checks of items before issuing a “seal of approval” certifying an item’s authenticity.
These experts go through rigorous testing and interviews before being hired on by the company. The costs are economical and absorbed by the seller; buyers pay nothing extra for Authenticated items. They simply have the peace of mind of knowing that they’ve purchased a genuine item.
The company will utilize very distinct competitive advantages including their patented process, as well as ease of use. The primary principle is to create a culture of trust between the buyer and the seller by placing a specific brand expert into the transaction. Authenticate Pro is the first company to file for a patent for this kind of authentication process.
