The TÜV SÜD certification mark

S@S logo

Trust in E-Commerce with tested safety

Trust is the basis of every business. Without trust in the performance and professionalism of the supplier many clients are reluctant to do business via the internet. As an online supplier it is your duty to ensure that the client is confident and feels secure processing payments with payment software through your business on your website and with your company. TÜV SÜD’s s@fer-shopping provides you with solid support when dealing with your clients.

What is special about the TÜV SÜD certification mark?

The brand „TÜV“

TÜV (= Technischer Überwachungs Verein) is a very strong and established brand. The name TÜV is synonymous with independence, trust, neutrality, competence and incorruptibility. The three letters „TÜV“ support – according to current studies – even strong brands in their statement for company quality.


The different certification mark requirements of the online traders are currently very similar – the main differences are in the adherence guarantees. This is where TÜV SÜD comes to the fore: our own three tier test procedure consists of an online test, a security check and an on site audit, to offer the client a high level of quality and safety when purchasing online.

Emphasis is placed in particular on data and system security, data protection and service provider processes.

Our Expertise

In addition to s@fer-shopping TÜV SÜD offers a number of other system related certifications e.g. for quality management, IT safety management, environmental management, IT service management or service quality. You can find more information on
