How to Make Your Online Shop Credible:

Modern Design

Customers buy with their eyes so make that first impressions count! An outdated design and disorganised cart functionality will instantly put off your valued customers and cause your business to lack credibility. Make sure your content is exciting and visual with just enough text to cover all the needed information without being too long winded and boring.


Your branding is intrinsic to the design of your website. Make sure it is fresh, visible and memorable.

Prominent Contact Details

Make sure your phone number, address and business hours are prominently displayed. This will not only give your shop credibility, it will also promote a much needed ‘call to action’. Toll free numbers are also a bonus. Customers must be able to contact you easily if they have a problem or need a question answered quickly.

Transaction & Credit Card Security

Payment gateways and online merchant facilities must be safe and secure and your customers need to know what policies and procedures are in place to ensure them your shop is credible and protected. You shop should offer a SSL certificate and explain the level of encryption provided. You web provider can guide you on all of the latter and will advise you on how to ensure your customer’s minds are at ease when using your online shop.

Shipping & Return Policies

You customers need to know what happens if an order goes missing or if goods are damaged in transit. Most merchants aren’t held responsible for the latter, however, you customers must know that you have systems, strategies and policies in place to address these things. It’s a good idea to offer transit insurance at the check out as this places the onus on the customer to ensure their purchases are covered. The banks themselves have certain criteria for shops who use their payment gateway services and will help first time shopping cart owners, making sure their policies are legitimate and visible online. Always clearly state your shipping rates and options and make your terms and conditions straight forward and polite. Your first priority should always be the offer of outstanding customer service.
