In a significant move to bolster trust and consumer engagement in the world of eCommerce, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce in Bahrain, under the patronage of H.E. Mr. Abdulla bin Adel Fakhro, has unveiled the eCommerce Seal System, eFada. This initiative, a cornerstone of the eCommerce National Strategy, allows eCommerce platforms to obtain a seal without any charges, confirming their registration and authorization to conduct eCommerce activities.

The primary goal of the eFada system is to instill confidence in eCommerce while encouraging consumers to actively participate in eCommerce platforms. To be eligible for the eCommerce Seal (eFada), companies and commercial establishments with active commercial registrations must meet specific requirements. These include the presence of secure ePayment methods, refund and exchange policies, Terms of Use, and Data Protection policies, an operational shopping cart, and the ability to offer delivery services to customers.

Companies keen on obtaining the eCommerce Seal (eFada) are invited to register via the provided link on their website and follow the outlined steps. The Ministry is readily available to address inquiries and support those interested in enhancing their eCommerce credibility through email (, or calling 17574888.

This move positions Bahrain as a forward-thinking advocate for eCommerce trustworthiness and transparency, fostering a thriving digital marketplace for businesses and consumers alike.
