Getting a new user to trust your site enough to enter their credit card info isn't always easy. Put them at ease and increase conversions by getting your site vetted by a 3rd-party and displaying their "trust badge" on your checkout page.
A 2017 study showed that concerns about payment security were the primary reason that 19% of respondents had abandoned their carts — up from 15% in 2015. USCutter solved this problem by boosting users' sense of safety with a trust badge, and the result was an 11% increase in sales. While e-commerce is the obvious vertical for this tactic, it can work for anyone. For example, Blue Fountain Media added a badge to a form where potential customers requested quotes, and saw a 42% increase in conversions. If you're wondering what service to use, a study done by the Baymard Institute suggested that badges from Norton were seen by users as the most trustworthy, followed by the Better Business Bureau and McAfee.
