Breaking: Shopster to Kick Butt with KikScore – Helping Small Businesses Demonstrate Trust OnlineThursday, September 30th, 2010
A few of the founders of KikScore spent much of their formative years within a few miles of Canada! We grew up cheering for Canada’s favorite son Michael J. Fox in Family Ties and jamming to the hard rock sounds of Rush. We even enjoyed a few too many Canadian beers growing up. So it’s only fitting that KikScore is excited to announce a great new partnership with a Canadian based company and global ecommerce leader.
Our friends at Shopster, the powerful ecommerce platform that has over 100,000 small business merchants, are teaming up with us to help small online businesses. KikScore is proud to launch a fully integrated trust seal offering to all of Shopster’s growing small business customer base.
Here are some facts behind the partnership:
1) Studies have shown small online businesses lose billions each year around the world because shoppers’ trust concerns with buying online;
2) Studies have shown that 63 percent of online shoppers fail to complete a transaction because of concerns about site security or trust;
3) Shoppers are increasingly seeking more information and data from online stores before those shoppers will complete purchases with these small online businesses;
4) Many small businesses have a strong track record of trustworthiness and would significantly benefit if they could show shoppers their history of reliability and stability.
Our partnership gives Shopster’s customers an opportunity to obtain KikScore’s independently verified trust score and seal. The KikScore seal along with the embedded merchant report card empowers small businesses to take their good track record and display it to shoppers and the general public. This will help these small businesses demonstrate trustworthiness and reliability to shoppers who visit their site. Shopster’s customers can then create an environment for website visitors to shop with far greater confidence. This enhanced shopper confidence means more sales for Shopster’s small business customers.
Here are more details on this exciting new partnership between Shopster and KikScore.
Also we want to say a special thanks to everyone both at Shopster, KikScore and our family and friends everywhere that helped support the launch of this fantastic partnership!
