On this way you can shop securely online.
Shopping on the Internet can be dangerous as you certainly know from the media, there is unfortunately no central place where reputable Internet stores are listed, and the numerous Internet certificates are easy to forge, so we completely renounce a trust certification. How can you be sure that a company is real and whether it is reputable.

Onlinezoo is also a member of the Austrian Trade Association.
We do not use an Onlinezoo certificate from any trust shops, the problem with all the quality seals is that there is no uniform system, the certificates are sometimes very expensive, but still no one comes and really checks the company, we have had contact with many such quality seal companies and simply paid money for it, no one has ever checked us. Therefore, we consider these seals to be more of a rip-off than security. Basically, anyone can apply for such an online shop certificate or simply forge it. A check at the EU authority and the tax office, on the other hand, cannot be faked.
