The website has not yet been rated on Web of Trust.
WOT is a popular browser plugin used by thousands of users to rate online shops and websites.
If the website has a poor WOT trust rating it means someone had a bad experience.
Personally I may not buy goods from a website that has a poor rating.
If your website has a poor rating, ask WOT for a site review.

Check Linuxnews.uk domain creation date:
The domain name was created 2 years ago.
A shopping website created less than 4 months ago is too new and potentially suspicious.
If a domain name is too "young" we may have not enough details to judge it.
I would not buy goods from an online shop created a few months ago.
Check if Linuxnews.uk is using HTTPS:
The website is using a valid HTTPS connection.
A secure HTTPS connection encrypts all data sent between you and the remote website.
An online shop that has to handle personal information and payments MUST use an HTTPS connection.
Personally I would NEVER buy something from a site that doesn't use HTTPS.
It is fine for non e-commerce websites to not use HTTPS.
Check Linuxnews.uk Alexa traffic rank:
The website may not have too much traffic.
The website has a traffic rank of #3,484,696 among millions of other sites according to Alexa data.
Alexa is a popular web service known to rank websites by their estimated popularity.
Websites with a rank of less than 500.000 should have a lot of traffic, a low rank means good traffic.
In case Alexa has not enough data for a website, the rank will be 0.
The rank is not 100% correct, take this in mind.
