Norwich, Norfolk, United Kingdom, 2006/12/07 - At this time of year, with the increase in online shopping, more and more people will be getting their invoices sent to them electronically using email.
Since April 2006, the website proofofpurchase.co.uk has been providing a secure facility to enable users to store details (off-site) about products they've bought . Then if problems arise customers can easily retrieve the information they need to get things sorted.
It has the advantage of keeping all the product information - receipts, date of purchase, supplier contact, etc - in one place away from your own computer.
Rather than relying on being able to extract, the information from backed up data which is often compressed, hidden and mixed in with other files, proofofpurchase.co.uk has entries for every purchase showing all the relevant information.
The goal of proofofpurchase is to provide a secure registry which allows users worldwide to record warranty (guarantee) information about the goods they've purchased. Then, if the worst happens, users can quickly gain access to everything they'll need to get things fixed.
proofofpurchase also provides a "sell" section where users can offer their goods for sale, if they're damaged or beyond repair. Any visitor can look through this section (but only reigistered users can advertise), and contact the seller (through us).
We also provide a "repair" section where users can recommend companies they've used; or companies themselves can submit more detailed information about the services they provide.
Finally, proofofpurchase has an "advice" section where we will provide information about disposal, insurance and consumer protection. This section will develop over time, but at the moment is focused on UK only information.
The proofofpurchase.co.uk service is available for £10 per year, with an initial free 30 day trial.
