BeCommerce - Over Ons

About BeCommerce

Our values

Our logo personifies our mission: to boost consumer confidence in e-commerce. The thumbs-up and different colors symbolize our company's values: reliability, authenticity and credibility.

The thumbs-up is the universal sign of "well done", reflecting our trademark perfectly. The circle represents interconnectivity in the world of e-commerce and the blue border embodies depth, stability, trust and loyalty. The white background is a deliberate choice to ensure that our logo is compatible with most online stores.

Moreover, the BeCommerce logo represents not only our values, but also our stakeholders and our business model: we are a non-profit association, so our stakeholders are vital to our organization. Each type of stakeholder of our community was assigned a specific color, which is incorporated into our emblem. 

Green symbolizes our B2C members, blue the B2B members, purple the webshop partners, red is the color of our business partners and orange indicates our sponsors. A stakeholder can belong to several categories. This flexible approach allows us to serve the stakeholders according to their individual needs.
