If you’ve visited Trustalyze.com, fake online reviews are a huge problem in the eCommerce world. Trustalyze is here to disrupt the online review industry with the Trustalyze Confidence System and our patent pending system built on blockchain technology.
Fake online reviews are a dangerous problem and have even formed a growing cottage industry of paid reviewers that post random garbage about anything they are told to write about. Over the last 7 years, fake reviews have grown into a multi-million dollar industry segment that has led to the creation of unregulated companies like RipOffReport, SiteJabber, TrustPilot, PissedConsumer, and many more. These companies make millions from reviews posted by unconfirmed, random posters with no validation that they had any real interaction with the vendors or products they are allegedly reviewing.
If you sell products or services online, then you’re not immune from this growing industry. Last year, online merchants lost over 30% of their revenue due to fake reviews being posted or paid for by competitors and disgruntled employees. Any merchant that has been plagued by fake online reviews done by competitors will tell you, review sites like TrustPilot, SiteJabber, RipOffReport, PissedConsumer, TrustMus, ComplaintsBoard, and others are reluctant to remove reviews. Why? Because content (even false content) is worth tons of money, and it hurts their bottom line.
The US Government has a law that prevents these companies from being held accountable or prosecuted when someone posts fake reviews on their website. Even when merchants have provided shown proof that a review is fake, these companies will refuse to remove it. This destroys the reputation of honest merchants, and they can do nothing about it… Until now!
How Trustalyze Helps Build Trust and Counter Fake Online Reviews
The Trustalyze Confidence System is here to help merchants build trust with their existing and potential customers. When a merchant uses the RCS with their payment gateway option, their customers have 30 days to review the transaction with a 1 through 5 star rating and 280 characters of text. This transaction-based review can only be done once per transaction.
Once a review is submitted, the customer can’t place another review unless they complete another transaction. That reviewed transaction will appear on Trustalyze.com showing potential customers real reviews that are only provided by existing customers. These reviews are then recorded on the Ethereum blockchain as proof of a real review. What does all this mean for you as a business owner? This means that the reviews that appear on Trustalyze.com can’t be faked and they can’t be removed or modified by a merchant. The goal here is to give merchants back what unscrupulous competitors have been taking from them for years: their reputation and revenue.
With our branded solution, potential customers can have confidence that the reviews they see about your business are only linked to real customers that made real purchases. The Trustalyze Confidence System gives customers the assurance they need to know that reviews about your business are real. This helps customers to hold merchants accountable, and it helps the best merchants to shine above their competition.
