What is Finder Verified?

Partners vetted for legitimacy, certifications and security.

When you see the Finder Verified logo, you can trust we’ve put in the work to investigate the legitimacy of the seller you’re buying from. While we do not maintain testing facilities or laboratories to confirm the efficacy of items such as face masks or hand sanitizers, we take efforts to review the product’s origins.

What does Finder Verified mean?

Finder Verified is a sign to you that our team has vetted a partner as a legitimate reseller of items our readers are interested in. We go the extra step to request samples of verified items to compare against the advertising.

Business documentation

We directly inspect a partner’s details to make sure they’re a registered business backed by a real person we can speak to:

  • Legal business name
  • Proof of business address
  • ID or passport of business contact
  • Business registration, including EIN confirmation
  • Licenses and other permits from local, state or federal government
  • Tax notices and registration

Item compliance

We vet copies of certifications and approvals relevant to the items we’re verifying.

We also require samples of the product, photos of where they’re stored and other item details:

  • Physical samples of the items
  • Certificates of product authenticity
  • FDA-registered facility documentation
  • Photos of product worn or held by a person
  • Location and photos of warehouse where products are stocked

Personal security and privacy

We take measures to safeguard the financial details of our readers and other sensitive data against misuse and fraud, helping buyers to rest easy that items will arrive as expected.

Finder Verified companies clearly and publicly post their terms and conditions online, including:

  • Shipping options, processing turnaround and estimated delivery
  • Refunds and return policies
  • How the company uses and shares your information
  • Availability of customer support
