membership is sold in time denominations ranging from one to
three years. After registration, members receive a WebAssured.com
certification seal for display on their website that incorporates
the date through which membership has been issued. Longer commitments
yield significant cost savings, and the date on a merchant's
seal provides customers with increased confidence in the sincerity
of this commitment.
