Do Trust Badges Work?

Trust Badges work because they represent proven credentials that attract more users. They must be underpinned by real-time data from a reliable and robust data network. By combining trust badges with live data, websites can create a trustworthy environment that instills confidence and encourages users to engage and transact with peace of mind.



What is a Trust Badge

A business trust badge on a Marketplace or Ecommerce website serves as a symbol or icon that signifies a certain level of trustworthiness or security associated with the site. These badges, supported by real-time data, aim to provide reassurance to users that the information they encounter is authentic, secure, and reliable for conducting transactions. Here are some different trust badges types:

  • Verified Information Badges
  • Endorsement Badges
  • Money-Back Guarantee Badges
  • Security Badge such as SSL (Secure Socket Layer)
  • Payment Badges to indicate accepted methods

What to Consider

In choosing a trust badge for a Service Marketplace or goods-oriented Ecommerce, focus on features that bolster your website’s credibility and customer security. A trust badge should not only symbolize confidence but also align with your business's specific needs and the concerns of your customers.  Consider the following:

  • Is the provider reputable?
  • Do they offer customizable integration options?
  • Are real-time updates available?
  • What is their scalability and support?
  • Can you confirm the information supporting the badge?
