History of Trusted Store Badge

The Trusted Store Badge initially served as a means of reassuring customers about the reliability and quality of products and services from its associated merchants.

As a result, the badge helped to increase engagement and drive more clicks to merchants’ websites.

Importance of the Badge for Merchants

The new “Top Quality Store” badge signifies trustworthiness and quality, helping to generate more clicks on merchants’ product listings.

The introduction of the “Top Quality Store” badge signifies Google’s ongoing commitment to fostering a trustworthy and high-quality e-commerce experience.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
