If you are considering spending over £1000 or the equivalent in another currency on any service or product and are even a little unsure about the seller, KwikChex offers a more comprehensive service, which will delve deeper into the seller’s identity. This applies whether the seller is an individual or a business.
We do charge a fee for this, which will be made available on request, as the costs do vary according to the type of product and where the seller may be located.
This service is particularly useful when you are being asked to pay by bank transfer or cash – and even more so if you are not able to see the product or validate the service because of the seller’s location.
