Of course, it works against fake suppliers but even better against 99% of your direct competitors that are not using a trust certificate to protect their reputation!

The digital trust certificate of FakeScouts does not have any brand- or industry-related focus or limits. It can be used to verify any merchant or distributor. It works best for any physical products that need to be shipped.
The term “Authorized Reseller” refers to any merchant that has been verified by the brand itself to be an official partner of their exclusive distribution network. That means, Authorized Resellers are guaranteed to sell original products of this brand.
There is no limit to products or services you could verify distributors for. So if you apply it in a useful way, there is no objection to use it to verify digital products (like software) or services (car garage).
We have a “Pay as you Go” pricing philosophy. That means, you will always start with the Free plan and never pay more than what you need! When you exceed your plan limits, we ask you to upgrade your plan to be able to use the next volume level.
Only you. We have integrated a secure database structure and limited super admin rights, so that our support team can only access your data when you grant explicit access to help with an issue or bug.
If your cart system supports the EDIFACT communication standard we can connect you through SPOCC. If not, then we can integrate your shops affiliate program.
Usually the merchant will send an email through our platform and the sales rep needs to register a free account to verify up to 5 merchants for one brand. FakeScouts does not verify any merchants with any brands. The merchant must ask the sales representative of each brand directly to verify the merchant through our platform.
Individual Sales Reps can sign up with a Forever Free Plan to verify up to 5 merchants for one brand. When you want to verify more merchants, you need to ask the brand to register a brand account and confirm you as one of their sales reps.
You can access all the tax compliant invoices for all your subscription cycles in our self-service billing portal. You can find the link in the footer menu section.
We are offering a security solution based on trust, so we need to make sure that whoever is using and accessing data on our platform is who she claims to be and is entitled by the company they work for.
