American Certified employs 10, including seven full-time employees.

The e-retailer is an Amazon associates store, which means Amazon gets an 8.5 percent commission on every item purchased, and also handles the billing and customer service. The company uses Amazon product descriptions to determine if a product is made in the U.S. and plans to offer free certification to manufacturers.

Weinberger, 59, leads a team of six full-time employees, based at Callowhill coworking space Venturef0rth.
