    Try and you'll see. If you get scammed, then it's not trusted.

    The domain was registered 71 days ago, the site looks like they just took a template and didn't bother to edit much of it, as all the social links at the bottom just link to the main website.
    Also, the domain is registered in US under an English name, but the website has bad grammar/spelling, which doesn't add up unless the owner is still a kid.
    Smells like a scam.
    And the final nail in the coffin? Look near the bottom where it says "Subscribe to Mododoc news".
    According to Google, Mododoc is a real website. And looking at it, you'll find that it looks exactly the same. They just ripped off Mododoc's design completely, changed most of the text and called it their own, but didn't even bother to change all the references to the website they ripped off.
    Someone actually serious about e-commerce is not likely to be this lazy, and certainly isn't likely to rip off another legitimate website (unless it's a shady Chinese reseller but that's not the case according to the whois info) so I'm going to say with 99% certainty that it's a scam.

    So full of typos, a line of French by the looks of things on the main page (and not just a cute French phrase or anything), full of stock images, other images link directly to ebay, other images also to ebay but also with some other company's watermarks, ssl cert from comodo (not bad but not good), no business address mentioned, fad TLD (I know I should be less of a snob but still), loading symbol looks like it should be a GIF in the 90s, in house credit card handling by the looks of things (I did not want to buzz it too hard).

    Code looks fairly clean but nothing special, I don't recognise the CMS offhand and could not be bothered to try the usual suspects

    Wound not be surprised to find they are just some people giving online business a go but they are doing it badly. Don't give them your business, or maybe find their ebay account and use that.
