Domain Trust Score API

The Scamadviser Trust Score API is a fast and easy way for businesses to check the trustworthiness of a domain and integrate it within their Know Your Customer (KYC) risk assessment flow.

The website's address is all you need. From this single input, Scamadviser will do all the hard work and provide you with our bespoke Trust Score.

Our algorithm analyses any online (sub)domain for both positive and negative factors to determine its trustworthiness.

In addition, Scamadviser can warn you if a Trust Score drops or increases, helping you to manage and monitor your risk after having approved the website.  

The Scamadviser Trust Score API helps several kinds of companies:

  • Advertising & Social Media Platforms: If you are a social media platform, affiliate network, or display advertising system, our Trust Score API helps you identify possible fraudulent advertisers quickly. 
  • Financial Services Providers: Scamadviser API has been integrated by several Know Your Business (KYB) service providers as well as PSPs as an additional data point in the verification process.
  • Internet Service Providers: Independent of if you offer payment solutions, email marketing services, or other online services, by helping a fraudulent website, you are in trouble with customers performing chargebacks, demanding refunds, or suing for damages. 

Scamadviser gives you control over how you want to evaluate a website depending on which factors are most important for you.
