Australian Certified Websites launches
Websites that are certified as Australian! An exciting concept from entrepreneur Jessica Urquhart. Jessica was frequently buying goods online from sites with ‘.au’ domains only to find her goods were being shipped from suppliers abroad or she was being overcharged on freight on checkout. She was further annoyed by local sites that lacked transparency and did not display ABN’s, phone numbers, location address, contact detaills or postal addresses etc.
After much research Jessica has now launched Australian Certified Websites. A service that offers site owners the chance to bring their site to a standard that will provide more trust and integrity to the Australian Online Internet Industry
