Trust plays an important role on the Internet. The fear of losing money is one of the biggest barriers in online shopping and means lost sales for online retailers. Unlike in a physical store, you are asking your customers to part with their money in advance of receiving the goods -so any sign that their personal data might not be secure means they will drop-out of the process.
For online businesses, it’s important to constantly reassure customers at every stage of the journey. Tools such as quotes from happy customers, clear contact details and money-back guarantees, provide consumers with the reassurance they need to complete a purchase.
Another way to encourage your customer to buy is the use of security accreditations and logos displayed on your website. In fact in a recent INFAS survey, 65% of European consumers said that a trustmark was either important or very important when choosing to buy from an online shop.
This is where Trusted Shops comes in – We are the leading trustmark for secure online shopping, offering a full range of services aimed at making consumers feel safe online and in turn, enabling retailers to benefit from an increase in conversions.
Becoming a member of Trusted Shops means your business could benefit in the following ways:
-Displaying third party accreditation on your site, you are giving a clear sign to consumers that you take security very seriously as a retailer, reassuring them that their payment data is secure.
-Consumers are covered by Trusted Shops buyer protection guarantee meaning they are more likely to convert to a buyer and spend more.
-The Trusted Shops logo is recognised throughout Europe and is currently used by over 16,000 online shops.
-Trusted Shops also offer a mediation service between retailers and consumers in the case of any dispute, saving you time.
-No sales tools are as effective as real feedback from real customers. The Trusted Shops widget allows you to display customer reviews.
