The Vendor Trust score is determined by multiplying together two components:
  • the weighted average rating, which ranges from -1000 to +1000 and takes as input Green Flags (Legit) which are given a score of +1000, and Red Flags (scam, test, illegal, NSFW) which are given a score of -1000.
  • certainty in the determination of the average score, which ranges from 0% to 100%. More ratings by more users, expecially by users who have high User Trust scores, means higher certainty.

  • Max Vendor Trust Score: +1000 (trusted)

    Min Vendor Trust Score: -1000 (distrusted)

    A trust score close to zero does not necessarily mean that the average rating is low; it may simply mean the certainty is low because there are not enough ratings by users with high trust scores.

    The scores will vary depending on your Grapevine settings, which include various parameters such as who you choose as the "anchor" or "seed" user for your web of trust, and how much trust you give to unvetted or anonymous users. On the left are scores using the website's default grapevine settings.
