WOT and Kiosked make online shopping safer


Consumer worry about the security of online shopping, identity theft and stolen credit card information is at an all time high this year. WOT, together with the in-content ad platform Kiosked, have just made online shopping more convenient and secure than ever.

Kiosked is a service that turns the Internet into a marketplace. With Kiosked, consumers can purchase whatever products they see online, at the place where their interest, and the shopping impulse, is born. WOT reputation data is used to pre-validate websites joining the Kiosked network to improve the safety of online shopping and to ensure the trustworthiness of the site.

“People get shopping impulses from online content when they see a good looking lamp, golf glove or t-shirt on a blog, for example,“ says Kiosked founder and CEO Micke Paqvalén. “Until now, there has been no easy way of buying or getting information about the products they see without having to leave the site to search elsewhere. When they leave a trusted site, consumers run the risk of visiting sites with dubious reputations.”

As WOT’s ratings are powered by the experiences of millions of people around the world, WOT detects problems such as scams and unreliable shops, which automated systems cannot. To ensure the end-to-end safety and security of each transaction, Kiosked and WOT have jointly created an automated system that reads and acts on reputation ratings calculated from WOT users and the security feeds from 100+ internet security companies. The automated real-time security system is unique and included in Kiosked’s pending patents.

“WOT reputation data enhances Kiosked’s products for publishers and consumers. Consumers feel confident about the security of online shopping because they are dealing with a trusted site when they make a purchase through a Smart Kiosk, “says Vesa Perälä, CEO of WOT Services.

“Kiosked provides consumers with instant access to more information, along with the possibility to make an on- or offline purchase. Our partnership with WOT ensures that the online shopping experience is a safe one,” says Paqvalén.
