Helping Small Online Businesses Demonstrate Trust & Credibility: KikScore and Shopify Partner UpSeptember 20th, 2011 | Events,KikScore & KikReport,News,Online & Small Business Resources,Small Business | 1 Comment »
As you all probably know, we at KikScore are dedicated to helping small businesses alleviate consumer trust concerns. What you may not have known is that, for the second time, KikScore is going to attempt to take over Canada! That’s right; we are once again arming ourselves for the coming partnership between KikScore and Canadian company Shopify. Together, we’ll help to revolutionize the ecommerce industry and continue to fulfill our mission at KikScore of doing everything we can to help small business and entrepreneurs!
Shopify, an online retail platform that hosts over 1,600 stores, has decided to partner up with KikScore. This new alliance will give Shopify ecommerce stores access to KikScore’s Confidence Badge app. This app contains KikScore’s 4 unique tools that are packaged together into a one-of-a-kind trust seal: (1) a business-specific trust score to help small businesses, (2) a Confidence Badge to display at the bottom right of the business’ website, (3) a dynamic and informative merchant report card, and (4) an interactive feedback platform.
There are a number of reasons for our partnership with Shopify. Here are a few key data points:
1) More than 50% of internet users don’t shop online because of security concerns.
2) 85% of consumers worry that online retailers don’t do enough to combat online fraud.
3) Over 75% of all potential online purchases are abandoned.
There is even more data on this issue of the challenges of small business and demonstrating trust here in this recent post we did on the topic.
Our partnership with Shopify will allow small businesses to empower themselves like never before. “We are really excited about being able to offer our KikScore Trust Seal through our new Shopify application. Now all Shopify customers can easily add a KikScore seal to their site through this streamlined application” says KikScore VP, Product, Mike Collins. With our app, small businesses can easily and efficiently display their track records of reliability. It’s time to cut down on shopping cart abandonment and increase sales!
