Google is rolling out their own trust mark right now. Today I saw it at the German shop www.pearl.de. It is definitely worth looking into. In the picture below you can see the “Google certified shop” logo. The small box at the bottom is visible all the time, the bigger box shows up when you click.
Google certified shops offer two (three) important things for online shoppers.
1. They monitor the delivery quality and customer service quality of the web shops, and as a customer you know that the shop usually delivers good quality. This of course means a lot for customers shopping for the first time in a new web shop. These two elements are not yet monitored by other trust marks.
2. They protect customers from losses (in this case up to 1000€) they might experience from doing business with the web shop. This is also offered by other trust marks (not in the Nordic countries though).
