  • Pricing verification documentation to verify the cost price of each SKU the business lists
  • Searching the internet for any negative or criminal news associated with the business
  • A BBB lookup of the business to check for complaints
  • Social Media: Facebook fans, Twitter followers, Blogs, and overall user engagement
  • Ebay, Amazon, Etsy accounts: Star ratings on products and comments from buyers
  • Any pertinent purchase orders or any other information listed in the business’s credibility metrics on their Co-Op
